Is Lil Wayne Dead? Nope, More Bogus Twitter Hoaxes

March 1, 2015 Updated: July 18, 2015

Lil Wayne hasn’t died, so stop talking about it.

Another Twitter hoax on Saturday night, “#RIPLilWayne,” was trending. It’s probably second time the term has trended in less than a year.

Wayne along with Justin Bieber are among the most hoaxed celebrities on the social media network.

So, what’s Wayne up to nowadays?

Miami Police searched near his home on Friday morning for a man wanted for murder.


As TMZ notes:

A fleet of cops cars raced to Lil Wayne’s Miami Beach home early Saturday morning … after police got a call reporting someone lurking in the neighborhood … TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement officials tell us Miami Beach PD rushed to Weezy’s after the call — around 3 AM — saying there was a suspicious looking man on the rapper’s block.
We’re told Weezy wasn’t home at the time, but cops searched his yard for the suspect … and came up with nothing. No one ticketed, no one arrested. The commotion did alarm a few neighbors though.

We’ve reached out to Wayne’s camp, but no word back yet.

Amid his very public split with Cash Money Records, Wayne said he and Birdman, the operator of the label, aren’t on speaking terms anymore. He filed a $51 million lawsuit against the label earlier this month.

“I’m numb to it, to tell you the truth,” he told BET. He added, “I’m human. But it’s nothing that a good blunt can’t cure.”

He also said he’s working on The Free Weezy Album, which is coming in March.

“I’m working on it every day, man,” he told the site. “I guarantee it’s going to be something dope. If you don’t want a musician being creative, don’t get The Free Weezy Album.”
