Lil Wayne safe as police surround home

Today’s afternoon scare in hip hop took place in Miami, namely at Lil Wayne’s home where police surrounded his mansion. Fortunately, these updates followed… (via TMZ)

11:55 AM PT — Police have officially declared this incident a swatting, writing on Twitter, “MBPD handles all calls of this nature in a serious manner . In this case it appears to have be a hoax @ #LiLWaynes home . #Swatting”

11:35 AM PT — Wayne posted a photo minutes ago from a recording studio. Meanwhile, Miami Beach PD have cleared the perimeter of the home and tweeted they believe “swatting” is a possibility.

11:00 AM PT — Young Money just tweeted, “Wayne is okay. Wasn’t home during alleged events.”


Of course, Twitter speculation ran rampant that Birdman has it in for Wayne. Let’s not jump to conclusions people… this being a hoax turns out to be even better than originally speculated (an actual shooting.)
