Had the pleasure of meeting Weebie on numerous occasions in L.A. during the BET Awards! My prayers go out to his friends and family. New Orleans has definitely lost a legend. If you’re not familiar with 5th Ward Weebie, I’ll be sure to post a few videos to jog your memory! According to IG Weebie entered the hospital with a ruptured artery. Surgery was successful, but there were complications after, including kidney failure and then “his lungs went,” P Town Moe says.
