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!

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!
