Lil Wayne took time out of his busy schedule to salute the troops. The Young Money was photographed meeting with military personnel at an Indianapolis airport.
On Saturday (March 5), Weezy was about to leave the airport on his Gulfstream jet when a military C13 landed next to his aircraft. That’s when the rapper ordered his pilot to stop the plane so he can get off and greet the military personnel that were departing.
Amanda Cooper Lickliter snapped a photo of the encounter and posted it on her Facebook account.
“He and his boys got off their plane, came into the lobby, and shook every one of the service men’s hands,” she writes. “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.”
Lickliter says she’s been a fan of the rapper “from day one,” despite some of his music being a little too raunchy for her. She also praised Wayne’s entourage for being “friendly as hell.”
“He made me smile even before this by treating my line guys with respect…his entire entourage was friendly as hell too,” she wrote in response to a fan in the comment section. “And then to see his whole crew jump off their plane, just as they were getting ready to taxi away, and come in to make my military men smile…it was great. And here I thought my cookies and the pizzas I ordered for them would be the highlights of their day!”
Props to Lil Wayne and crew for taking a moment to thank the military for their hard work in keeping America safe.
