The urban blogosphere was abuzz throughout the weekend with conflicting reports that Hollygrove's hottest son (at least these days) had gotten himself in a dust-up in the club last Thursday night that resulted in getting tossed in OPP. By Saturday morning, multiple blogs were in disagreement across cyberspace as to when (Thursday night?), where (the Club Dream - now Club Hush - on Lower Decatur, or Austin, Texas?) and who (an "up-and-coming" rapper called Lil Dee?) was involved in the alleged incident.
Always one for gossip, I holla'd at Bob Young, the officer in charge of public affairs for the NOPD, who had apparently already fielded a couple of calls trying to confirm the theoretical lack of love in the club. Monday afternoon, Young confirmed that one Dwayne Michael Carter, D.O.B 1982 - a.k.a. Weezy F. Baby - hadn't seen the inside of a NOLA lockup since 2005. And considering he was onstage as planned by Friday night in Dallas, the odds of a Texas arrest seem low. (A search of Travis County, Texas' inmate population found no Weezy behind bars.)
The moral? Haters will be hating. Fly free, Li'l Wayne. Fly free.
