AceShowbiz - There's something different with Lil Wayne these days in a positive way. The 40-year-old rapper, who has been open about his addiction issue, looks much younger and healthier in some new pictures.
The photos were shared by Missy Elliott after Tunechi surprised her at her wax figure's unveiling at Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas last week. The "Work It" rapper returned the favor by showering him with praise on Twitter.
"Yall Guess who rolled up on me to help me celebrate???" she wrote along with a video of her sneakily filming Wayne. "I was so shocked because I invited him but I didn't think he would come & he did Blessed to Be out with this LEGEND/GAMECHANGER!"
"@LilTunechi You have Birthed a whole generation after you & Its easy for people to acknowledge Some1's GREATNESS when their no longer around but I want you to know YOU ARE LEGENDARY no matter who thinks differently YOUR BLUEPRINT is PRESENT! No debate," she captioned their photos, showing Wayne all smiles at the event.
The raptress added, "Sometimes it's hard to run into a real one in this business but when you do DON'T LET THEM GO A huge hug will let them know you appreciate them & their contributions to the CULTURE! Thank You @LilTunechi."
Fans couldn't help noticing Wayne's youthful look. "This is the most alert and youthful I've seen Wayne in a good while," one person claimed. Another similarly said, "Wayne looking pretty good! Been drinking water and minding his business, I see."
A third user gushed over the two hip-hop stars, "Idk what @LilTunechi has done but he looks DAMN GOOD and so does Missy." Another echoed the sentiment about the "Lollipop" hitmaker, "is it me or he actually looks healthy lol."
However, some naysayers doubted that Wayne obtained his youthful look naturally, accusing him of going under the knife. "Filters sadly," one troll responded to a positive comment from another user. Meanwhile, some others speculated that Weezy may have got a facelift to look younger.
