Lil Wayne

RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL

After Skateboarding Accident

8/22/2011 6:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0822_lil_wayne_BN_TMZ-01Lil Wayne needed 9 stitches to close a bloody wound over his left eye last night ... after crashing HARD at a skateboard park in St. Louis.

Weezy was treated at a local hospital -- and one witness told a local TV station the rapper was accompanied by several members of his entourage. According to the hospital, Wayne was treated and released.

Wayne seems to be doing OK -- because he was already tweeting about the crash this morning ... calling the injury a "gnarly gash."

Props to Lil Wayne for taking part in an amazing pastime and art form
Honestly, it's good to see a musician take part in activities so many of his fans take part in
It is refreshing to have Wayne doing something average, every day kids do

This isn't breaking news its stupid.
lil wayne busted his head open trying to skateboard lmao!!! That's what he gets for being a poser. Bet you he cried like a bitch to. Is that why he quit playing guitar as well? Cause it kicked his ass. I don't see why people admire this guy.
