Blacklisted Links Found on Lil Wayne[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected links on Lil Wayne which have been added to the blacklist, either globally or locally. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed or are highly inappropriate for Wikipedia. The addition will be logged at one of these locations: local or global If you believe the specific link should be exempt from the blacklist, you may request that it is white-listed. Alternatively, you may request that the link is removed from or altered on the blacklist locally or globally. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. Please do not remove the tag until the issue is resolved. You may set the invisible parameter to "true" whilst requests to white-list are being processed. Should you require any help with this process, please ask at the help desk.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

Request for verification of Lil Wayne's Twitter account(s) & its/their insertion into External Links[edit]

Is there a reason one of his fans or otherwise knowledgeable followers hasn't included Lil Wayne's twitter account (or accounts) in External Links? I see mentions of Twitter exchanges in the Main Article, so it seems this information should be included in the External Links section. I don't know the man or his music, but I might have stumbled upon a link to a tweet of his. Problem is that I'm not sure, so even if I had editing privileges for this page, I wouldn't exercise them here due to the uncertainty. I'm old, stodgy, and easily confused, so it's best I leave this for resolution by someone who really knows the situation with this guy.

A reference in the Main Article leads to @LilTunechi (Lil Wayne WEEZY F) as the account, and with over 25 million followers, a lot of people would certainly seem to think it's the real deal. However, a tweet that was cited in a Gawker post as congratulating Ta-Nehisi Coates for winning a MacArthur Foundation Genius grant came from the account @S_C_ (Mr. Carter), the content of which also suggests a strong likelihood of belonging to Lil Wayne. While the latter Twitter account has "only" 3.2 million followers, that's still pretty d*mn impressive! Also, for whatever it's worth, both Twitter accounts are verified (the white-check-mark-inside-serrated-blue-circle thing). There is no reason that BOTH accounts couldn't below to Lil Wayne, but...I really don't know (and who knows, maybe there are more than "just" two Twitter accounts to his name). I'll leave this minor mystery to you fans and music aficionados. Sharl928 (talk) 20:47, 29 September 2015 (UTC)Sharl928

@S_C_ is jay-z. his name is shawn carter. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:18C:8500:23E5:784F:3585:D397:3E0E (talk) 17:02, 21 May 2016 (UTC)

Lil Wayne's Lyrics and Video don't represent black community[edit]

Remember that the A&R and record execs that Lil Wayne and other rappers report to, are not from the hood. Lil Wayne, like most modern rappers, are promoting the negative stereotypes that some non-black Americans are comfortable with. --2604:2000:DDD1:4900:E059:8D18:1CF6:780 (talk) 11:23, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 13 February 2016[edit]

Hello, I'm requesting to add some interesting information to this page. It has to do with the fact that Ryan Lochte, an olympic swimmer for team USA, uses lil wayne's music in order to pump him up before the race. I feel that this is important because Ryan Lochte is also a national celebrity and the fact that he uses Lil wayne's music to help him in the pool should be taken into consideration. Thank you Here is the article from the "New York Times" providing that information. According to Karen Crouse, "In Lochte’s mind it was a toss-up as to which was the bigger event this month: the release of Lil Wayne’s newest album or the trials. He was the first on his block to get his hands on the CD. Listening to his favorite track, “Mr. Carter,” put Lochte in the right frame of mind for Sunday’s race, especially the line: “This right here is crazy. I — I feel Big!” Citation: Crouse, Karen. 2008. "Rival's Fast Finish Propels Phelps to another Record." New York Times (1923-Current File), Jun 30, 2.

The document for lil wayne is outdated. If you let me edit it, i can add information that a lot of people don't know about yet. I am his biggest fan; I follow him on twitter, instagram, snapchat, etc... I know more about him than anyone else. So that's why you should let me edit it.
