Lil Wayne gets 'gnarly gash' skateboarding
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.

I was suggested this website through my cousin. I am now not sure whether this put up is written by means of him as no one else realize such distinctive approximately my problem. You're incredible! Thanks!
Yes I am smart all of you are not. I am holier than thow. Felt urgency to explain that to all of you. Just sayin'
Nobody picked up on the headline "Lil' Wayne Gets Gnarly Gash"???? I was laughing my butt off. I don't think that term means what you think that term means. I thought it was a crude euphemism (figure of speach)....but of course I assumed all along that it went without saying that he did. Just sayin'
@BiggerWayne~ I will invest to ! Smart move ! Lmao !
Heck, I sell skateboards to clutzes of all colors, I've got ER Dr.s investing in my Co. Keep em coming.
Oh my god, nothing wrong with skateboarding. One of the hardest SPORTS out there. I admire anyone that can skate well. Lil wayne stop trying to be a skateboarder just because the clothes are "in style". I like his music but I hate how five years ago he used to dress like a "gangster" and now it looks like he shops at Zumiez like the rest of the posers.
What a poser.
And this is news...how? It was a skateboarding incident that doesn't bear mentioning, but I promise to laugh my a** off when it shows up on "It Only Hurts When I Laugh". Undoubtedly, homeboy is going to milk it for all he can simply because he's a...a...well, "artist" isn't accurate, and "performer" doesn't hit it..."doof". Yeah, that's it, like all skateboarders who vandalize public property and attempt to intimidate pedestrians, he's a "doof". Like my son says, "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit!"
Middle aged white mom who really enjoys Lil Wayne's music and saw him recently. Not being racist or anything but I'm sorry.....his pants don't fit. White, black, yellow or even black and yellow.....That young man's pants don't fit,. Kept pulling his drawers up the whole show. This could have been the cause for his falling off his skateboard...or the fact he's a little rusty now that he's on tour. But his pants on the ground....yup...I bet that's what made him fall....the pants on the ground.
Can't wait to hear his new CD and wish him all the success....but with all that money....buy a belt sweetie...it won't kill ya
When did he get out? mheh...
Most of you do not possess his level of vocabulary skills or lyrical talent. The number one sign of jealousy is slander. Face the facts people, if no one else ever bought a Lil Wayne album he would still have more money than all of us on this blog 10+ years down the road. Instead of sitting around trying to find a way to put someone else down, take a look at yourself and figure out a way to better your life.
Say w h o t ? You prolly right.
*POOT* <-Right in ya black faces. Smell it N!gger.
Be good Weezy baby,I know you were laughing at all the a""h*les from your first class hospital room.
All. Yall stfu! Shows the world is full of idiocracy. Dumb @$$ haters. Eat a d*ck!
Up yaw N!GGER.
Why do you all use such foul language ? You're not an some social networking site, you're on a National online News site. Try to use your big boy words.....and don't make me "ax" you again !
To Wendy.....what does "yaw up" mean
Wendy – What does "yaw up " mean ?
Is it anything like get on the hoss and "yaw up" as you ride into the sunset ...3 Amigos style ?
ow! hope he recovers well ... tie my hands and how to love! lil wayne is a talented lyricist! ... not perfect but we're all learning here!
Lil Wayne=stupid trash
Is it racist to say that Justin Bieber sucks? When there is real news out there but CNN takes up space to tell you that Lady Gaga nicked her lip shaving what would you say? This guy may make a lot of money, so does Bill Gates but I don't want to read about Bill Gates stubbing his toe. The reason this story is on CNN is that Lil Wayne has a record release next Monday and you can damn well bet Time Warner has a piece of that pie.
Is he the guy that was on Dancing Wit The Stars ?
His daddy abandoned his family when Lil Wayne was 2. Wayne accidentally shot himself with a 9mm at 13 and dropped out of high school at 14. No stereotypes in THAT story!!
The only tragedy here is that the fall didn't somehow permanently incapacitate his vocal cords. Not that it would matter, because the autotune brigade would still generate this noise that people call "music."
"The only tragedy here is that the fall didn't somehow permanently incapacitate his vocal cords"
Or at least improve them.
Lil Wayne....still proving to the masses he's not a REAL rapper. No self respecting rapper will get caught wearing SKINNY jeans at a skate park...wake up people...ur getting hustled...oh but he's not rapping anyway just talking and giggling through autotune all the way to the bank!
Would you rather that he wore those baggy pants and sagged them while he skated? What's with this hang-up about skinny jeans, anyway?
Wayne is a so-so rapper. Basically he's just an actor. I'm glad he's OK, but the whole thing doesn't matter.
I sent death to come and get you racist mother*uckers....then I am going to flush your down my personal toilet to hell.
He's posessed to skate
wow CNN what a great story and I see all of the flash mobs are on here
hes better of skating then rapping
i guess if the web was around in the 50's we would be trashing Elvis and what horrible things he did for rock and roll
This is a simple story about Lil Waye getting hurt. If you are not a fan, don't read the story or comment. All you covert, internet racists are really coming out of the closet on this article. Using this as an outlet for your hate of his success that you wish you had or the black race period. I Dare You all to speak these same hateful words in front of Black people and let me know how that works out for you.
Is he the one that was on Dancing With The Stars ?
One on one you darkies are all cowards and thats speaking from experience. Oh when you are in your tribes you all tough gangstas butt one on one your are chickenShyt. Never met a darkie I couldnt outsmart or back into a corner. All of ya are basically dullars.
To Sons of a Silent Age – Looks like the only "dullers" is you. Go to your google search and write in 'd u l l e r s' and see what lovely choices it will provide for you to select from. Play some banjo music while you're at it.
Its all the same to you thugs. Your lips are so big ya cant speak properly and your brains are so small ya cant string together a coherent sentence. Suffice is to say you are all cowards.
I love that this guy was out there skateboarding. Love it!!! Everyone get on a board!!
Safety Tip: Don't skateboard on the Arch.
This is nothing about race, Lil' Wayne is just a bad rapper. But jesus christ DJ Khaled is just trash WE THE BEST WE THE BEST WE THE BEST WE THE BEST WE THE BEST WE THE BEST WE THE BEST WE THE BEST WE THE BEST WE THE BEST WE THE BEST
did this lowlife insect trip over his pants?
I saw the whole thing....he was wearing shorty shorts and playing grab a$$ with a couple of other guys when he went down. Started crying like a little girl. Shameful.
Well buskerbeat you should be able to now go out and make 10 million dollars this year! Oh I forgot you can't Rap!
RACISM IS IN FULL EFFECT... REALLY PEOPLE...??
Just another one with "lil" importance.
Ok, I just listened to "I ain't human" and I see who he is – he is the creation of a fat white cigar smoking barbershop-haircut record company man. Start each song with some mid-to-high sampling, then have Lil Wayne come in awkwardly as if his is in the middle of a conversation, mention how rich he is, how his N's will kill you with a (plug in the street name for a weapon), how you ain't a N and if you was a N his N's would kill you with a (plug in a different weapon name). Then spin down the beat to quarter time, spin it back up. End. Every f'in song. These aren't musicians, they aren't artists they are creations like The Monkeys and Stone Temple Pilots.
Who is Lil Wayne? Is he the same as Lil Kim or Lil Scrappy? Is he important? Why don't hip hop artists last? Who is the Stones of rap? Who is the U2 of hip hop? They come, they get shot, they get shot again, they get arrested for shooting in their studio and then they disappear. Why should I care?
dude, Hip Hop doesnt need "Stones" or "U2".. you know what all your problem is you guys are too stupid to really understand Hip Hop.. Shakespeare would be proud of hip hop.. oh and BTW U2 fell off a couple albums ago.. at least todays youth gives old music respect by appreciating what's come before and making room for new stuff, you boomers just wanna live in the past.... let it simmer for a bit, itll make sense!
lol im not even a little Wayne fan but you people are ridiculous, I hope you people don't ever procreate.
Phuc yall im a G.
A prime example of what happens when you have the education level of a 7 year old. God help us all with these next to retarded people that share our airspace with us!!!
Such a good role model for our youth... Can I ask one simple question; what's the deal with wearing your pants down to your knees and showing other guys around you your underwear??? Does this mean he's bi? Is he gay? I'm not showing any men my underwear, especially when I'm wearing them!!! Pick your f-ing pants up for crying out loud, you're almost 30!!!
Yeah whats up with those damn kids and their scootboards, its like a rolllerskate with a board!
its a fashion statement, they did the same to the long haired hippies, didnt they??? .. Don't fight modernism, you will lose in the end.. and stop blaming americas problems on blacks and latinos, its all the damn things that are imported from china that are killing our economy.. Seriously people use ur Fukin brains!!!
Too bad he didn't get a gnarly gash on his jugular. This guy has zero talent yet continues to make millions??
A continuation of the dumbing of America...
You're not kidding! This country is going to hell. The youth in this country have the worse people for role models. None of them respect ANYONE. Most have zero conscience, and how many have the intelligence of a friggin fencepost?? 90% A country full of disrespectful, spoiled, dumb a$$ youngsters...
this is what happens when you act like you can play guitar,and when you think you can skate........lol...\m/
Who cares? Just another dumba$$ making money on cRAP.
Klu Klux Klan Killa
just another bigot trying to give it to the blackies huh??
Oh.......he's out of jail!!!
WORST – RAPPER – EVER.
That this man is popular in the US has made me lose a great deal of faith in this country.
you should be disheartened by the fact that most products in US stores say "made in china", even american flags!
SO MANY HATERS WITH TOO MUCH TIME ON THEIR HANDS!!! You all need to get to work and TRY to make the money he is making!! What's funny about most of the negative comments is it proves you all really no nothing about the man! It's all good Wayne!! You get nothing but love from the real ones!!!!
Lil Wayne works? That is funny
Was someone making off with his watermelon and fried chicken casserole?
Can anyone tell what his tattoos are? I can't tell because of his skin. Why does he bother with tattoos?
NO COMMENT.. BUT WHAT I CAN SAY IS U PROBABLY ARE ANOTHER BROKE LOSER.... WITH A LAUGHABLE PENIS...
Drinking malt liquor? He doesn't even drink alcohol evil kenievel
I'm just mad because I'm white and Wayne makes in one hour what I make in 4 years. So I must post racist comments to feel better about my self. It's the pasty skin way here in America.
There's no need to post these offensive comments! You should be ashamed!
ITS OK.. AT LEAST HE KNOWS HE IS A LOSER... GOOD JOB FACING REALITY THERE BUD!!! THERE'S ONLY ONE THING LEFT FOR YOU TO DO....
It may take you 4 years, but you still make more than 99% of the black people out there.
America should ashamed for making a stupid piece of trash like Lil Wayne rich
poor wayne....dont listen to these people...close minded individuals. i will pray for u
Why? god doesn't exist. It's a waste of time.
Not only does 'God' exist as a metaphysical truth, but even if he doesn't, prayer is a very beneficial activity. Stop living in the land of reductionist, selfish, materialism, open your eyes and look at the glorious life all around you. You are not 'dirt' – you are 'alive', the 'breath of god' lives in you, there is not scientific explenation for life (not evolution, not biology, not chemistry) – life itself defies the laws of physics.
And the Bible defies itself in several places.
Kyle- sorry ur life sux dude!
James- ur awesome!!!!!
Nothing a bucket of KFC won't cure
Haha! So wrong, but funny nonetheless.
LET ME GUESS... YOU HAVE A FEW BLACK FRIENDS OR A COLORED TV... RACIST...
Make sure he hydrates with some watermelon.
I challange ur racist comment.. Kunt!
Klu Klux Klan Killa!
Aww, too bad he didn't die. Hopefully next time.
Why does he have to be in Jail?
I heard he passed out after conkin his head. They used some fried chicken instead of smellin saltz and he came right around.
50 cent he ain't.
I bet he gets a tattoo to cover the scar.
nothing but a bunch of jealous racist here. Wayne is dope
Easy there Al Sharpton. Just because people don't like him doesn't make them racist.
its the racists comments that are racist!
so if a light skinned person dogs on a darker skinned person...no matter what...that makes them racist...right?
That means that if a light skined "black" (even though nobodies really black) dogs on a darker skinned
"black" that means the light skinned black is racist too?
I just want to know the rules...lol
Shouldn't he be back in prison for something?
WOULDNT YOU LIKE TO SEE IT..... BROKE ASS
next thing ya know he will try swimming
Lulz. Nice work, my friend. I see what you did there. You have won the internets today.
i thought this loser was in jail
"100 MILLION DOLLAR LOSER" TO YOU, YOU ARE LESS THAN A THOUSANDAIRE...
And just when you thought he couldn't get fuglier!
Widdle Wayne, before your posses tells you differently...no, it couldn't have happened to anybody.
It's just that you suck! LOL
If you wore pants the right size (with a belt) this wouldn't have happened, fool.
I have to be the Devils advocate for just a minute. While a lot of bashing is going on here, your reply sir is maybe the most irrelevant and ignorant at the same time, so far on this forum. You obviously can't wait to take a jab at the Hip Hop culture, and here you are with "He should wear his pant's the right size with a belt", insinuating I suppose that his pants are baggy and falling off. Check it genius, Wayne wears his pants the exact correct size, too tight in my opinion, but what I'm saying is to know what your talking about before you say some stupid stuff to the world on this Wayne bashing blog.
WHATS WRONG WITH YOU RACIST PEOPLE.. SOON YOU WILL HAVE TO ACCOUNT FOR THIS COMMENT... C YA SOON....
Dude, baggy pants went out with the 90s.... I conquer with grcoop, you couldn't wait for a story like this, so you can just make a comment like that.
Great remark Pull. LOLS
Only thing better is when they have the cop shows on and some young dude tries to outrun a cop and his pants fall down around his ankles and he gets caught. Gawd I love it.
Yes, pull your pants up please ! We don't want to see all your lil' bits !
Lookin' like a fool with your pants on the ground
Pick the world up drop it on our f***ing head.
Just a middle aged white lady from the subs and I really like this guy. Going to see him next month!
To Chris – Wasn't he the one that was on Dancing With The Stars ?
Too bad it didnt kill him or send him into an indefinite coma.
