Craigslist: Lil Wayne Wanted

I came across the following ad on Craigslist via Twitter. After a few hours it was flagged for removal. I fortunately had a screen shot, because just posting the text by itself I knew no one would be believe me. Read below, it's HILARIOUS! Anyone out there looking for a career in acting, this could be for you. . Enjoy. Haha.

Lil Wayne wanted (DC-MD-VA)

My son is turning 16 and really wanted Lil Wayne to perform for his birthday gala. Unfortunately his schedule will not permit him to make it. I need a Lil Wayne impersonator desperately.

Here is the kicker my son is blind so you do not need to look like the rapper just sound like him. I understand he grunts and mumbles a lot. I don’t care if you are 67 and Jewish if you can sing the songs you’re hired. Money is not an issue. Name your price. Interested individuals please let me know your rap experience, video of you performing as Lil Wayne would be better. If that is not feasible we can arrange for a live audition.

Serious inquiries only, this is very important to my family. Young Money Baby!


  1. Wow! Please tell me this was a joke. There are so many things wrong with this. Are they really comparing Lil Wayne to a 67 year old Jewish man? I have to admit I did chuckle a little but I can't imagine "how important this is to your family" that you're willing to pay damn near anything for someone to trick your child on his birthday in front of friends and family. Are they all blind, too? That secret won't last the evening, dumb money!

  2. Lmfao. Sometimes I am tempted to post stupid ish on craigslist just to see who responds. I wonder if this is legit though. Should have made a video singing "Lollipop" or "Every Girl" and responded. HAHAHA
