This combination of 1955 and 2013 photos shows Emmett Till in Chicago, about six months before he was killed in Aug. 1955 while visiting relatives Mississippi, and Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. performing in Irvine, Calif. In 2013, Lil Wayne recorded a verse using the name of the civil rights martyr in a sexual metaphor. Till, a black teen, was killed in 1955 for allegedly whistling at a white woman.

This undated photo provided by the New Jersey Department of Corrections shows Vonte Skinner. Skinner, whose rap lyrics boasted he would "blow your face off and leave your brain caved in the street" will have his attempted murder case considered by New Jersey's Supreme Court, which will decide whether the words he penned should have been admitted at trial. Skinner's case is being watched closely by civil liberties advocates who contend the lyrics should be considered protected free speech under the Constitution.

FILE - In this April 18, 2012, file photo, hybrid swine peer through a wire fence on a farm owned by Mark Baker near McBain, Mich. After seeking $700,000 in fines from Baker, the state of Michigan has abruptly dropped the case, acknowledging that Baker wasn’t violating the law by raising Russian boars and other exotic breeds of swine. At the same time, Baker’s lawsuit against the state Department of Natural Resources was thrown out, raising questions about the status of other pending cases against farmers and ranchers who raise the animals that state biologists and the domestic hog industry consider a menace.
