Exactly one week ago, news spread like wildfire that YMCMB rapper Lil Wayne had been hospitalized after suffering from a seizure. While the reports on Wayne’s medical condition conveyed by the media were very conflicting with the statements released by friends close to the “High School” rapper, the common consensus was the Weezy was in fact hospitalized.
While most members of Wayne’s camp expressed that he was fine and just resting, TMZ reported that the rapper was near death. A tweet was eventually sent out from Wayne’s Twitter account saying, “I’m good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.” The tweet was enough to put some at bay, but skeptics believed that Weezy’s camp was hiding something and that there was some truth to TMZ‘s claims. Some even expressed that they wouldn’t believe he was okay until they saw a photograph. Well, the New Orleans rapper decided to give fans something better. He recently released a video blog, thanking fans for their love, alongside his pal and fellow rapper T.I. Interestingly, the video was acquired by TMZ.
“What’s poppin y’all? Tunechi in this b***h. I just want to say thank you to y’all for y’all prayers and y’all concerns and all that. I swear to God I felt that love when I was laid up in that mother f***ing hospital bed. I want all y’all to know that I’m good. A n***a more than good,” he says in the video.
He then went on to plug for his upcoming album, I Am Not a Human Being II.
“Also, my bum a** album still coming out March 26. ‘I Am Not a Human Being II.’ You can go get that if you want. But if not, it’s all good, whatever. Also, I’m still going on tour, America’s Most Wanted Tour [with] my closest friends in the game. Speaking of my closest friends in the game, I got my n***a right here to elaborate on that subject.”
Then enters T.I.
“What’s happenin? What ‘s happenin? You good, I’m good, we good, it’s all good. Ain’t nothing to it. Aye hustle game, young money, partna. I hope you brought money cuz it’s going down [more T.I. jibber jabber] July 5th… Get you some barbecue on fourth come holla at us on the fifth… If I say it and it’s a lie n***a, Popeye a punk.”
And finally, Wayne brings it all back in.
“I’m more than good. But, thank you for real. Thank you all out there for your prayers and all that. I’m more than good. I swear.”
You gotta love T.I.s ability to code switch. On T.I. & Tiny: Family Hustle, he articulates himself so well, but only God knows what he was saying in that video with Wayne.
