The fellow rapper took to Twitter to voice his strong outrage towards TMZ for what he believes is false reporting. However, TMZ is not backing down and continues to insist that Weezy is in critical condition. Keep reading for all the details!
T.I. got off the stage of his concert at South By Southwest on Mar. 15 to find the world in chaos over news that Lil Wayne was in critical condition and being read his last rites. After doing some reporting of his own, the Atlanta rapper lashed out at the original story.
TI Lashes Out At TMZ
“Just holla’d @my Lil bruh Tunechi…& he skraight!” T.I. tweeted, and then he really showed his anger: “TMZ some f**k-[expletive] for reporting that hoe-ass-s**t!!!” The rapper ended his profane tweeted by reminding the world how close he is to Lil Wayne: “That man daughter is like mines.”
T.I. was spewing venom, but you can’t really blame him — according to the rapper, he talked to Wayne personally and he was doing just fine! T.I. continued on, saying that TMZ’s “false” reporting was extremely hurtful: “That s**t surely got his mama hurtin, his kids hurtin,” T.I. tweeted, before adding that he’d gladly go to war against TMZ for Lil Wayne.
Lil Wayne In Critical Condition: TMZ Sticks To Their Report
Still though, TMZ continues to report that Lil Wayne’s health is not as “straight” as the hip-hop community claims. According to their most recent update, Lil Wayne “is still in critical condition in the ICU… but stabilizing.” TMZ has also reported that Lil Wayne’s mother is on her way to Los Angeles and that all major health decisions won’t be made until she arrives.
So who’s right and who’s wrong? T.I. claims he spoke to the man himself, but it’s only a claim as of now. And TMZ’s refusal to back down is sort of convincing — after all, they initially reported that Lil Wayne was receiving his last rites, and when that turned out to be false, they deleted it from their report completely. So the fact that they haven’t retracted their story completely means they believe in their reporting.
