(FreshAsFrankie) I am happy to report that Lil Wayne has been released from Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, where he was treated for multiple seizures suffered on Sunday, September 3.
According to TMZ, Wayne has been ordered to take it easy from touring for at least two weeks. He’ll perform next on September 23.
Despite rumors to the contrary, Wayne’s team insists his seizures were the result of a grueling schedule, combined with a lack of sleep … and had nothing to do with sipping lean.
The rapper reportedly is an epileptic.
(FreshAsFrankie) The man who claimed to have sold drugs to Chris Brown and Lil Wayne is heading to jail. For a long time.
A Miami man who billed himself as the CEO of lean” is heading to prison for a long time.
Harrison Garcia a.k.a. “Cuban Harry” will be spending the next 30 years in prison, after he was convicted of armed drug trafficking.
The 27-year-old admitted to supplying South Florida celebrities with lean, which is a mixture of codeine and promethazine.
Federal agents accused Cuban Harry of selling the drink to celebrities like Lil Wayne and Chris Brown.
Cuban Harry came under investigation after he blatantly advertised his business to 30,000 social media followers on Instagram under the screen name Muhammad_A_lean.
According to the Miami Herald, the rapper admitted to selling $15,000 worth of drug Chris Brown, and he also testified that he sold “large amounts of narcotics” to Lil Wayne as well.
Cuban Harry still has another trial to face, over racketeering charges, where he is accused of paying a gang of young men to rob drug stores in South Florida, in order to get ingredients to make his own lean.
Cuban Harry’s lawyer said he plans to appeal the 30-year sentence handed to his client.
(NewsnMusic) Back in April 2015, Lil Wayne’s tour bus was ambushed with gunshots after his performance at a nightclub in Atlanta. After the incident, Birdman and Young Thug were accused of plotting to kill Weezy in the attack. The shooting was carried out by Jimmy Carlton Winfrey – also known as Peewee Roscoe – who later pled guilty to firing at the bus carrying Wayne and his crew. In November 2015, Winfrey was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Now, over a year since the incident, Weezy’s bus driver, Alvin Lewis, has filed a lawsuit against the alleged conspirators.
Lewis is suing Winfrey, Young Thug, Birdman, Cash Money Records and Young Money Records, according to Courthouse News. He is suing for the mental anguish he suffered after being caught in the crossfire. In his suit, Lewis says Winfrey called both Birdman and Thug before and after the shooting occurred on Interstate 285. He said neither of the rappers “repudiated Winfrey’s heinous acts.”
“Defendants placed [the] Plaintiff in immediate fear of death and severe bodily harm by attacking and attempting to kill him without any just provocation or cause,” the complaint states.
Birdman has since denied any involvement.
No one was injured in the shooting, but Winfrey’s suit states the incident caused $20,000 in bus damages. He also said he “suffered and continues to suffer substantial and continuing pain […] suffering, discomfort, medical expenses, lost personal and professional property and lost wages.”
He is seeking unspecified financial damages.
