Lil Wayne Buys Wheelchair for Fan’s Mother

Lil Wayne would make Santa Claus proud. The New Orleans rapper recently got into the holiday spirit and bought a fan’s mother an $11,000 motorized wheelchair.

According to New York’s Daily News, Weezy felt compelled to help New Jersey woman Evelyn Austin, after receiving dozens of letters from her daughter Ronda while he was locked up in Riker’s Island, where he served eight months for gun charges.

Wayne surprised Ronda one day with a phone call, where he found out her mother’s wheelchair had broke and decided to buy her a new one.

“I couldn’t believe it,” Ronda told the paper of the gift. “I never asked for nothing. I just told him all kinds of different things about me. I never even said I needed help.”

“I pray for him every night thanking him for this chair,” Evelyn added. “I love every bit of it. It changed my life.” —Elan Mancini

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
