Lil Wayne is recovering from what sounds like a nasty spill taken at a St. Louis-area skate park.
The rapper was in town to perform at a concert on Sunday, and afterward headed out with his skateboard. After taking a fall, though, he landed at the DePaul Health Center emergency room, reports Rolling Stone.
"The Lou was good but I busted my...head at the sk8park!" Wayne tweeted Monday. "9stitches! Gnarly gash over my left eye! Luv the people."
The 28-year-old is gearing up for a performance at the MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday, and is set to release his album, "Tha Carter IV," immediately after the show on the Web.
