If you’re not familiar with rapper Lil Wayne, you might be confused by a number of tonight’s trending topics on Twitter, including #PrayForWeezy, Weezy and Damn Wayne. TMZ is reporting that the 30-year-old rapper was being given last rites tonight after being hospitalized Tuesday night at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Hospital following multiple seizures. Label-mate Mack Maine says not so fast, though.
The news has apparently reached CPAC.
A second source from the Young Money Cash Money Billionaires seems to indicate that reports of Lil Wayne’s impending passing are premature.
Wow. Lil Wayne’s first tweet following this social media firestorm has been retweeted more than 60,000 times in less than 15 minutes.
Last rites? Who said anything about last rites?
Rapper T.I. has also expressed some, shall we say, passionate criticism of TMZ’s reporting.
