Lil Wayne Impostor Hits 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' After Weezy No-Show
Between putting out at least one album a year, helping steer the Young Money ship to mainstream hip-hop dominance and working on his kickflip, Lil Wayne is an eternally busy guy -- so busy, in fact, that he didn't have time to make his planned appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" last night. To make up for the no-show, Kimmel pulled a random audience member onstage, gave him a hat and some dreadlocks, and implored the gentleman to do his best Weezy impression.
The highlight of the faux-interview came when Kimmel started asking the fake Wayne about his prison experience: the impostor (whose real name is Carl) said that he was arrested for "speeding," and that he read "To Kill a Mockingbird" while he was locked up. Fake Weezy also said that he didn't get Justin Bieber anything for his 18th birthday "'cuz he's rich," and incorrectly guessed that his hometown was New York (note: trade "York" with "Orleans," Carl!).
Lil Wayne has not yet explained his absence or responded to the bait-and-switch "Kimmel" skit on Twitter. The rapper may be too busy counting down the days until the release of "Ready To Go," his collaboration with new Cash Money signee Limp Bizkit, which is expected to hit the Web next week.
