Skip Bayless Explains More About A Good Deed Lil Wayne Did To Help One Of His Best Friend’s Son Beat Cancer At A Young Age [Video]

Skip Bayless Explains More About A Good Deed Lil Wayne Did To Help One Of His Best Friend's Son Beat Cancer At A Young Age

Back in May, Skip Bayless first mentioned that Lil Wayne did a good deed for one of his best friends Craig Humphreys’ son, Sam Humphreys, who was battling testicular cancer at the young age of 21-years-old by going out of his way and giving him a pep talk for support.

After appearing on “UNDISPUTED” last month, Skip thanked Wayne for appearing on the show between concerts on his current tour with Blink-182 and for helping Sam beat cancer. He also added that Weezy gave Sam VIP treatment at his Los Angeles show on August 8th and gave him a shout out which ended in him getting a standing ovation from the sold-out crowd.

In other news, Lil Wayne also gifted the hots of “UNDISPUTED” (Skip Bayless, Jenny Taft and Shannon Sharpe) with some special gifts for allowing him to be on the sports show so often – a bit of bling. You can see a picture of Wayne and Sam Humphreys backstage at the L.A. concert above and see the videos of Bayless giving a heartfelt thank you to Tunechi, as well as showing off the gifts from Tune below!

Skip Bayless Speaks On His Friendship With Lil Wayne, Reveals A Good Deed Wayne Did For Craig Humphreys Son Sam

For episode 2 of UNDISPUTED’s “#SkipRidesTheTrollerCoaster” series, Skip Bayless revealed how his relationship with Lil Wayne came to be.

At the 6:05 mark of the video below, Bayless told the story of how he first met Tunechi in 2008 (which involves Nelly), mentioned they talk regularly and text all of the time, discussed Tune‘s passion and knowledge for sports, praised the “No Mercy” theme song, and called him a “creative genius”.

The sports columnist also explained how much of a good guy Wayne actually is by sharing another story that involved Craig Humphreys‘ son Sam, who found out he had testicular cancer at the age of 21-years-old. After finding out that he is a huge fan, Weezy made a 20-minute phone call to Sam for support. Skip then went on to say he believes this motivated Sam to battle the cancer before adding that him and Mr. Carter shared a joke about it always being “all the white kids” – even at his concerts!

Lil Wayne Visits The Children Hospital Of New Orleans On Boxing Day

We first saw a photo of Lil Wayne visiting Kiron 2 days ago, and now we can see 4 more pictures of Wayne at the Children’s Hospital of New Orleans on December 26th.

According to a rep of Weezy, he decided to visit the Louisiana hospital on Boxing Day while he was home for the holidays and to brighten up the kid’s Christmas a little bit more:

“Wayne visited Children’s Hospital of New Orleans the day after Christmas while he was at home for the holidays. The purpose of the visit wasn’t for any special reason or for publicity. He just had it on his heart to visit these kids in hopes to brighten up their holiday a little more.”

Lil Wayne Visits A Paralyzed Fan In Hospital After He Was Shot In His Spine

Lil Wayne Visits A Paralyzed Fan In Hospital After He Was Shot In His Spine

Kiron, who is from New Orleans, was shot earlier this month on December 9th and is currently paralyzed from the waist down after having a bullet stuck in his spine.

I don’t have anymore details about the situation other than the fact that Kiron had one of his idols, Lil Wayne, come and visit him in the hospital.

This was a kind act from Wayne to do, but of course most websites won’t report news like this as they would only rather post the negative things. LilWayneHQ wishes you the best Kiron and hopes you get better soon!
