For a couple moments on Wednesday there was fear that we'd lost Lil Wayne.
Miami police touched off a media frenzy when they responded to a call that four people had been shot at Weezy's Florida mansion. However, when cops arrived and found no gunman, no bodies and no Wayne they very quickly surmised that it was a case of "swatting," which is when somebody prank calls emergency services.
The prank call has been released, and you can listen below.
"I'm at Lil Wayne's house. I just shot 4 people. I'm killing whoever else I see. I don't give a fuck. Whoever else I see, I don't give a fuck if you're a cop or not. I'm shooting to kill everyone," the prankster says.The person behind the voice has taken new relevance with reports that there have been a bevy of strange calls coming into Weezy's Miami abode over the last couple weeks, mostly hang ups. There was also a report that a hooker whom Wayne didn't order was recently sent to his address.
Wayne's people think they have the phone number of the guy who's been harassing Weezy's home and have given it to the police. While it would be awesome if it was Birdman (or Young Thug), we're fairly certainly we didn't just hear their voices on that tape.
