Lil Wayne misses Jimmy Kimmel appearance

Posted on

If you found yourself thinking Lil Wayne looked a lil’ different during his visit on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night, don’t fret — Your eyes were not playing tricks on you. When the rapper suddenly couldn’t make it for his scheduled appearance on the show, Jimmy Kimmel chose to improvise rather than leave a gap in his show. (Sorry, Matt Damon, still no time for you!)

Kimmel picked an audience member who looked and sounded, well, nothing like Lil Wayne and transformed him to look and sound, well, nothing like Lil Wayne. (What a difference a hat and wig doesn’t make sometimes.) The host then sat down for a chat with the Lil Wayne stand-in, in which the two chatted about his most recent stint in jail. (Apparently he was incarcerated for speeding, not a gun possession charge. Who knew?!) Watch the interview with “Lil Wayne” here:
