Lil Wayne has legions of devoted fans, but none bigger than Bryan “Birdman” Williams. The Cash Money Records CEO took to Instagram to reveal that he’d gotten a new “TRUKFIT” tattoo on his left cheek, so everyone knows it’s real.
The move was likely in support of Tunechi’s recovery from seizures that landed him in Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, where he remained for six days. When the Young Money spitter first landed in the hospital, rumors spread like wildfires, based on a TMZ report, that he was in critical condition. Birdman himself refuted those reports before Wayne was released last week.
“He was never in that kind of situation throughout the whole few days we’ve been in the hospital. He never been about to die,” Birdman told Angie Martinez on Hot 97. “We got family and kids. When you putting out false rumors like that, you can really damage families like that, fear them and have them feared.”
In addition to the new ink paying homage to Weezy’s skateboard clothing line, the #1 Stunna also got a “GTV” tat over his left eye, which represents his Grand Touring Vodka brand.
The hand-rubbing Like Father, Like Son MC is running out of real estate for art on his face, having also gotten a “Rich Gang” tattoo on the right side of his face a couple weeks ago to “promote” his new compilation album, Rich Gang: Flashy Lifestyle, which is set to be released May 21, 2013.
