Reports of Weezy in Rehab Are Unfounded


Yesterday evening, 99 Jamz's K. Foxx and numerous hip-hop blogs announced that Lil' Wayne had finally gone Hollywood and checked himself into rehab for drug addiction. The news wasn't that hard to believe after Wayne's admitted dependence on cocaine and syrup, and since a Styrofoam cup full of sizzurp seems to be welded to his hand at all times.

But a call to a reputable Cash Money source asking whether Weezy was in a rehab facility in Boca gave us a firm "Hell nah."

So it looks like we can look forward to more lines such as "I'm a prisoner locked up behind Xanax bars" and "and if my dealer don't have no more, then I feel like dying" for now."

If anything changes with the story, we'll keep you updated.
