Rapper TI didn't mince words when he took to Twitter to blast TMZ after the gossip site apparently misreported Lil Wayne's condition, telling his followers that he personally called Wayne to check on him.

TMZ initially reported that Wayne was being given "his last rites," but they have since removed that from their story. At the time of this writing, TMZ has not posted a correction or notice that their earlier story was amended.

Family members and close affiliates of Wayne immediately took to Twitter to dispute TMZ's reporting.

TI's tweets on the matter -- posted just after he stepped off stage at the South by Southwest music festival, where he was performing at the FADER Fort -- are available below. (Please note that the tweets include graphic language and that the time stamps are incorrect -- these tweets were posted at 9:54 pm on March 15.)
