Lil Wayne Death Hoax

In a fake news article circulating online, a rumour was spread stating rappers Lil Wayne and Wiley had been shot and killed in a 'gang-related feud in New Orleans.'

The news was quickly proved untrue, by virtue of Wayne still being alive... duh.

The fake news stories appear to be the result of someone calling himself Gilgamesh, who posted details of a new tool that allows users to mock-up a BBC News article on the Kinetic North website.
