Lil Wayne is alive and well, despite a brand new video titled ‘R.I.P. Lil Wayne, Rapper Found Dead’ that went viral across social media on Dec. 16. Not only is the tribute video not appropriate given that the rapper is alive and recording new music, it may even be a bigger scam!

Lil Wayne fell victim to a death hoax once again! The 31-year-old rapper, who suffers from epileptic seizures, has been prematurely reported dead several times, but his Dec. 16 “death” scare originated from a viral video across social media that stunned and shocked some fans — while leaving others deeply skeptical.

Lil Wayne Death Hoax: Rapper Is Alive, Despite R.I.P. Viral Video

Thankfully, Lil Wayne is alive and creating some new awesome music for his fans, despite a newly surfaced video that claims the rapper was found dead after suffering a terrible seizure.

The “R.I.P. Lil Wayne” video also may be more viral than intended! The “tribute video” to the rapper actually requires users to share it to Facebook before they can view it, which is a known spam template and can cause computer viruses.

Lil Wayne’s Death Reports History

Unfortunately, Lil Wayne’s death has been reported several times in the past, and his history of epileptic seizures is to blame, so not all of his fans were tricked by another false report.

“The bad news is I’m an epileptic, I’m prone to seizures,” Lil Wayne revealed to Los Angeles hip-hop radio station Power 106 on March 28, 2013, after scaring fans with a hospital stint. “Like, this isn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure. I’ve had a bunch of seizures, y’all just never hear about them. … Basically, I could’ve died, so that is why it was so serious. But the reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest, overworking myself.”

We’re so glad Lil Wayne is doing well!

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you shocked that Lil Wayne was the victim of a death hoax again?
