Lil Wayne Buys Fan’s Mom a Wheelchair

If you're attempting a comeback you can always use some "awww"-worthy moments, and Lil Wayne got one after purchasing a wheelchair for a fan's mom. And not just any wheelchair, but an $11,000 motorized one that allows the formerly housebound woman to get out and about in her community. The rapper purchased the wheelchair after receiving touching letters from the woman's daughter nearly every week while he was in prison. "I pray for him every night thanking him for this chair," the chair's recipient, Evelyn Austin, said. "I love every bit of it. It changed my life." With stories like this, Weezy's comeback looks like it's shaping up to be a success. [NYDN]
