Lil Wayne injured in St. Louis skateboarding accident




Lil Wayne was just at the Skatepark of Tampa after his concert here earlier this month, so we know he likes to shred, but his head is what was ripped up after an accident at a St. Louis skateboard park Sunday. And that's why you need to come back to Tampa, Weezy.

"The Lou was good but I busted my fuggin head at the sk8park! 9stitches! Gnarly gash over my left eye! Luv the people," Dwayne Carter tweeted via @LilTunechi on Monday. The AP reports the 28-year-old showed up at DePaul Health Center's emergency room in St. Louis, where he was performing Sunday.

While Weezy's head knits back up, his fans are awaiting the release of Tha Carter IV, which features guests like Drake, Cory Gunz, Rick Ross and Busta Rhymes. Media-savvy Wayniacs can download it Sunday at midnight, after the MTV Video Music Awards. No stitches required.
