Tuesday (December 14) isn’t just a Tuesday, it’s also a day rife with Twitter hacking, claiming Lil Wayne as a victim.
During a call with the Shade 45 morning show with DJ Drama and Karen Civil, Lil Wayne said that he will tape a performance alongside Nicki Minaj for the “Last Call With Carson Daly” on Thursday (December 16), however someone broke into his @liltunechi account and announced that he’d be doing a live show in New York City.
“I was just mad that somebody went on my Twitter, like that’s my personal Twitter,” the MC said.
Rap fans know that following his arrest in the Big Apple in 2007, which later landed him in Rikers Island for eight months, Lil Wayne vowed not to perform in New York anytime soon. But the rumor wasn’t the only thing that upset the MC.
“Everybody know, I don’t do no promoting,” Wayne said. “Like I don’t do that, I’m not a promoter. A lot of people use their Twitter, like ‘Check this out’ or ‘I’m gonna be here’ but I don’t use it for that.
The Young Money captain said that it was only when friends began to email him, asking about the fictitious show, that he realized something was amiss.
“I like to be a different type of guy so when people started hitting me up like ‘You gonna be performing in New York on Thursday? A free show with Nicki?’ I was like ‘What?’ ” the rapper recalled. “And they said ‘Nah, it’s on your Twitter.’ So I check my Twitter and I’m like ‘Hold on man,’ so I had to get at the people who know how to do that to say ‘Don’t do that. Ever.’ I don’t ever have to promote nothing, that’s the beauty of Lil Wayne.”
