YMCMB’s Mack Maine says that he is unsure of whether it was Lil Wayne who actually sent out Friday evening’s Tweet regarding his health concerns.
In an exclusive interview with XXL, Mack could not confirm whether it was actually Lil Wayne who Tweeted, “I’m good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.” He said that he was not with Wayne at the time that the Tweet was published, and it could have been published by someone in his camp or a fan.
“That Tweet [that he sent out on Friday] wasn’t sent out on that same phone line,” he revealed. “I’m not sure if he Tweeted that or not. I wasn’t with him at the present moment. One of his fans could have Tweeted that, I’m not really sure where that came from.”
Mack also spoke on Wayne’s condition, saying that he can’t provide an official update on his condition at this time. However, he said that the New Orleans rapper is in recovery and not located in ICU as TMZ reported earlier today.
“He’s in the hospital regularly, [not ICU],” he said. “I can’t really give a comment on his situation right now ‘cus we’re not really sure, we’re just standing by him right now. Like I said, he’s in recovery as far as we know, so we’re just sitting back, just waiting until he’s come fully recovered before we can give a statement.”
XXL recently reported that a technology journalist had alleged that the Tweet in question was sent from a different longitude and latitude than that of the Cedars-Sinai hospital, where Wayne reportedly issued the Tweet.
