Rapper Lil’ Wayne put on a show at Indiana University, and on his way out of town, he stopped to go the extra mile for some very deserving Americans.
Weezy had just gotten on board his private Gulfstream 550 with the engines spinning up, when he told the pilots to shut it down because he needed to get off the plane.
What made him do this? The superstar rapper noticed a military aircraft landing and he wanted to shake the hands of the men and women aboard.
As each service member got off the plane, they were personally greeted by Lil Wayne – who not only shook each of their hands but spent time for photo ops as a thank you for their service.

Amanda Cooper Lickliter was at the airpot when the meet-and-greet went down. Touched, she decided to post an image to Facebook, accompanying it with a little blurb:
“So Lil Wayne came through IND today. At the same time he was due to depart, there was a military C130 arriving. It parked next to the Gulfstream he was on, and about 30 men in uniform crossed the ramp into the lobby. After they walked in front of the G-550, Lil Wayne apparently told his pilots he wanted off. They shut down their engines, and he and his boys got off their plane, came into the lobby, and shook every one of the service men’s hands. There was no press and no one to show off for…just a seemingly genuine act of respect. I know a lot of controversy surrounds him but, today, I was impressed.”
Good for you, Weezy.
