Lil Wayne gives wheelchair to fan's mother

How’s this for spreading holiday cheer: Lil Wayne, now a free man himself after his release from prison in early November, has helped someone else get out of confinement.

The 28-year-old rapper, who served eight months in New York's Riker’s Island on a weapons charge, has bestowed the mother of fan Ronda Austin with a wheelchair.

He writes on his website, WeezyThanxYou.com, that he came to know Ronda through a series of letters she sent him while he was serving his sentence.

“The first time I wrote Lil Wayne I just let him know that I support him, and I'm gonna keep writing him until he comes out. Just giving him a lot of encouragement...[letting] him know that God is with him and... to keep his head up and stay encouraged,” Ronda, of Williamstown, New Jersey, explains in a video posted on Wayne’s site. “I talked a lot about my family, myself and especially my mom and dad.”

And then one day as she was driving, Ronda received a phone call from Wayne. “In the midst of our conversation, he said, did you and your dad get your mom a wheelchair yet?” When she told him she hadn’t, he replied, “Well, if you didn’t get it, don’t worry about it. I’m going to take care of it.”

Ronda’s mother Evelyn says that about 10 to 15 years ago her knees started going bad, to the point where she couldn’t walk anymore.
So Lil Wayne stepped in and sent her a Quantum 6000 wheelchair, which has allowed Evelyn to get out and about for the first time in years, Ronda said.

“I see such a difference in her; she has this get-up-and-go in her now. She’s mobile,” Ronda said. “When she’s actually up and about,” she went on, pausing with emotion, “it’s like….it’s just a good thing to see.”

    That was a nice gesture. I'm wondering why this woman has "bad knees", though. Seems like she needs knee replacement surgery. Everyone I've ever heard of or known who has had knee replacement surgery is able to walk around, run, everything. This is why we need universal health care.

    What does it matter if he is black, green, or purple? Gifts from the heart are real and self-less and should be taken as just what they are....an act of kindness. Perhaps more should take the hint and give just one gift to someone in need. It doesn't have to be expensive, warm socks, hot meal, a hour of time spent together would be appreciated by many, especially the elderly or those forgotten.

He did it out the kindness of his heart.... Theres plenty of white black latinos asians so for that can learn from this act of kindness... And the people that bring of the color of this do gooders skin should get a clue... If u c sumone n need if u have the finacial means on doin it then step up and help...

    Lil Wayne makes $18 million a year, a $12,000 wheelchair would be .06% of his income.

    I make $50,000 a year, .06% would be like me donating $33.

    Yawn.. Congrats on giving up such a chunk of your paycheck buddy... Let us know when you've actually made a sacrifice.

    Why is it that black women feel the need to add black in front of woman when they are talking about themselves as though we can't see that they are black? Example: I'm a crazy black woman and she doesn't know who she is messing with or I'm a strong black woman..etc, etc Seriously we can tell you are black and we won't mistake you for a white person..lol. Is it so hard to just say you are a strong woman? lol.

I won't think so because you don't stand up for your race at all. You would just stand in a corner and wait for someone else to handle the situation.The n-i-g-s are banging your daughters and you close your eyes to it.

    I find it unbelievable that anyone is on here saying something negative about someone doing something good for someone else. That's all it was, and how can you be critical? "But he didn't feed 1,000 babies, so big deal." Grow the f up. People who donate $1 to the Salvation Army but spend $2 on a candy bar (or any non-necessity) are in the same boat, and that's just about everybody. It's still a good thing, regardless.. that's still money you spent on someone else that you didn't have to. There's nothing wrong with Lil Wayne cause he chose to help somebody out.
    There will always be people out there you can never please..

    I like lil wayne. Some people talk about his music, don't like it but if you pay attention he is to rap what sachmo was to jazz. His style of rap is equivalent to scat. A genuine fan a person who had the heart to encourage him while locked in a cage and could have been the very reason he was able to realize that what he was going through was just a small piece of lifes puzzle. He did a charitable thing but has anyone ever thought that he just wanted to help a family in need. He knows what it is to be poverty stricken and to be rich.12k may be a drop in the bucket for him but for a family in need it is top of the line. anyone think maybe he posted the letter on his website bc the fan expressed the fact that his mother is happy and joyful to be able to leave her home? He did a beautiful thing and changed a life. People get yourselves together!

  36. really?

    you know a lot of you people must be living in glass gouses who cares why he did it the fact is that he did it if I was in need of something and someone gave it to me I wouldn't care why they did it id just be happy because they did. You know in the army they told hus we were all green and race didn't mean crap and they were right I don't care about your past because everyday you wake up is a day to change and become something better. So what he got arrested I work with lots of people who have been to jail and among them you'll find some of the most caring people and some of the most heartless in just glad that someone stood up and helped this family its funny how when a white person does it its because they're nice but a black guy does it and they want something out of it I'm to poor to donate money but I donate my time and I don't care at all if I'm recognized for same as I'm sure he could care less one way or another

    Sounds like the fan was so moved by his unexpected good deed that she felt the need to have it publicized. Good for her and her mama. It feels good to have a spontaneous blessing fall upon you no matter where it came from. We all can do more than we actually do for our friends, neighbors, and loved ones.

    Yes, that was a very nice thing to do, and that is a pricey wheelchair, anywhere from 4k to 17k, although US Gov pays twice the retail prices I cited. I doubt he went cheap, probably gave her a fully loaded chair. He did not have to, so what if he got some good publicity.

    I kind of agree with a prior poster, "why do celebs have to provide basic healthcaer for people in the richest country in the world?"

    Since when does race have anything at all to do with being charitable? It has to do with your soul and spirituality and nothing else. Good people are good people. They come in all kinds of colors. A little more compassion from people would make this a much better world. I say use your energy for something positive. Do something to change your little spot in the world and stop being the morality police.

    The point is not the dollar amount involved. Celebrities write checks to various charities all the time, lil Wayne included. The thing that makes it special is he reached out, personally, to a fan and made a direct, and significant impact on that persons life. This specific type of outreach doesn't happen too often. That IS special. And props to him for giving back to a young lady who supported him through a difficult time.

    Calm down people! It should have nothing to do with Lil' Wayne negatively. It has nothing to do with race etc...A lot of times "rappers" get a bad rap because of their career(s) in rap & the entertainment industry. But yet it's everybody that's promoting him (i.e. buying his music, going to a sold-out concert) I'm sure this is not the 1st good thing he has done & nor is it the last. It's just that the media chooses to depict everything negative when it has to do with "rappers". The minute they do something good like so.....people/media/haters turn it into that he had to have a motive. Believe me to have a motive to make himself look good he would done something on a bigger scale. So please people with all the hatred remarks. Just be happy for the lady & grateful that someone was willing to help. & that someone was lil' wayne. Take Care & Stay Blessed Always!

      It has EVERYTHING to do with rappers! Rappers intentionally create a 'gansta' image and persona. What's terribly sad about that is all these little kids who idolize them. They dress like them.

    I can honestly say God is not making a person a top priority when they are wasting their talents, sending out the wrong message of wanton will against authority, using drugs, women and people and playing with weapons as an everyday occurrence. God looks at the measure of the man or woman as those things that are unique to them which makes them special in their small world to others, but who can contribute a positive message to many when given the opportunity. God does not deal with mayhem as a pre-requisite to being part of his family. There are enough rabble rousers around, one less is called for any good recipe for a good relationship between one and any other.

    I would like everyone to know that when you are in need of something (wheelchair perhaps) it does not matter WHERE it comes from! Goodwill or new doesn't matter! The kind gesture of giving this much needed gift does not erase the fact that he has flaws (we ALL do). At some point we need to look past the mistakes that people may have made and give them a chance to see who they really are inside. Most people are simply a product of their environment and have not found themselves yet.If everyone quit being so judgemental and became more concerned for their own selves and the actual well being of others instead of condeming them, we would see a difference! Remember that old saying... 'He who casts the first stone...' I simply am trying to say that EVERYONE deserves a chance to see who and what they were actually created to be! Thank you for being a giving person!

      That's the price in pounds sterling. The US price is close to 7000 dollars for the base model. An extra battery to extend the range is about 200 bucks, depending on which one you go for it can be more. The lift-seat system is money. The upgraded motor costs a bundle.

      One of these with all the bells and whistles costs about the same as an entry level Nissan, Chevy, or Ford.

    You people are ridicolous. He did not give this woman a wheelchair because he was trying to gain notarity. He did give give her a wheelchair because he was "rehabilitated". He gave her a wheelchair because he wanted to do something meaningful to return the favor of a fan that had given him encouragement while he was in jail. @ Jeff Lebowski, I am black and I love country music. Your comment was completely and totally unneccessary. @Wayne Newton, sounds like you're jealous of this "rich ghetto rat". You have NO right to comment on where people come from. @Evil Knievel, what murders? Don't you think he would be in jail for committing murders? Oh wait-let me guess-no because he's a rich, well known, black, rapper. At the end of the day, you're judgements and comments are insignificant. This man has done his time, paid his debt to society, and continues to asist where he can. I'm sure you all's ignorance will show on my next comment. In 2005 when Hurricane Katrina devasted the gulf area, and tore this man's home and the home of many others, it was he and his brethren that assisted in the clean up and relocation of thousands of people. Where were you? Not just with their money or star status as some others did, but they helped out physically. No rehabiltation required. But, I suppose tolerance and love are learned characteristics. Seems like you all failed that course. Carry on with your bashing and hatred.

I am a mid 20s white man who served in the coast guard in NOLA and on the Mississippi COats before, during, and for years following Katrina and totally know what you are talking about. Unfortunately, we still have some people in this country of all races who still have much hatred and ignorance on their views regarding race. As I like to say, "Race is only an issue where character lacks." Hopefully we can continue to weed these idiots out of our country or "rehabillate" their ignorance and hatred. Not too likely unfortuantely. They will die off eventually I guess. But big probs to both Vick and Lil Wayne for coming out better men.

      And..not only am I white, I grew up in a small Texas town in a school that had no black students. I was raised by very conservative old school Southern Baptist parents and we didnt have a lot of money. My parents raised me to treat everyone the same regardless of color. Stereotypes are pointless because they really only apply to a small portion of those who are stereotyped. There are great black people and there are crappy black people. There are great white people, and crappy white people. Ignorance and integrity arent race specific. People need to see that.

    First Vick, now Lil Wayne, apparently jail is rather successful as a tool for rehabilitating celebrities. As for those that continue to look negatively upon either; in season and country that is known and honoured for the second chances it bestows; aren't you being just a bit overly cynical?

      Since when is our country known for 2nd chances Quite the opposite really–we are one of the few civilized countries that will put people in PRISON for MARIJUANA (permanently destroying almost any chance of them ever getting a decent job or education), as opposed to offering help to addicts and other non-violent offenders. This is just one example of many of how we don't believe in 2nd chances.

      What motive? Who said there was a motive and why would there be? So he sent someone a wheelchair who needed it. What can he possibly gain by that? He did a good deed. It happens all the time.

      Just sounds dumb when you say "What possible motive?!" and tell the other guy he says stupid things. Wayne and I are the same age, watched him come up in high school and this is the very first charitable act I have seen. Everything else has been drugs, canceling shows, guns and prison......I hate not, just answering your question

      @Chris G- ur a tard, just cuz you're the same age doesn't mean a thing, and even if you did "watch him come up in high school" I doubt you were keeping track of his charity work. First charitable act??? How about all the stuff he's done for New Orleans since Katrina hit... I'm talking $200,000 donation to rebuild a park, charity events with Chris Paul, Reggie Bush, and Nelly. Even if the court ordered him to do charity work, I doubt giving a fan's mother a wheelchair would even count towards it. You're obviously either really dumb or just don't like wayne (or rap in general)...I'm guessing both

      sure you knew him personally in high school. I'm not going to condone him for his gun charge, but he was caught buying a gun after a close friend/member of his entourage was gunned down. As far as drugs, you should know your in your twenties too right. As far as no charity, look back to Katrina and read up on all he donated to his home town, both his own time and money. The guy just bought a complete stranger an expensive wheelchair, there's nothing to knock there, congrats weezy and happy holidays.

      The fact that he publicized it, proves the motive, "Look at me, look at how charitable I was, don't you think I am wonderful and charitable?"

Many successful rappers, including my boyfriend, have dental work like that done due to not having money to get the basic proper dental cleaning/work done BEFORE they became famous.
