LIL WAYNE is fighting off sick rumors he was shot dead over the weekend.
Reports began surfacing online on Saturday suggesting Lil Wayne had fallen victim to the ongoing battle between the notorious Los Angeles gangs the Bloods and the Crips, following a performance in his native New Orleans, Louisiana.
The news claimed Wayne, real name Dwayne Carter, Jr., had suffered six gunshot wounds after being hit with a 9mm semi automatic handgun.
But the rumors proved to be a hoax – the rapper was no where near Louisiana when the incident was alleged to have happened; instead he was touring the East Coast with his Young Money crew.
The only time I wish he was dead…is when he uses that damn auto-tune.
