Lil Wayne’s Name Has Comes Up In $250 Million Heroin Drug Bust. Don’t worry your favorite rapper is not headed back to jail yet. Apparently some east coast drug dealers thought enough of the rapper Lil Wayne and R&B singer Brandy to name their 500 bricks of heroin after the musicians. Newark, New Jersey police officers recently pulled over an SUV and found 500 bricks of heroin worth an estimated $250 million stuffed in various stash compartments in the vehicle. Drug dealers often name on their product as a means of branding or in order to describe potency. According to one of the detectives involved in the bust,

“The driver had no driver’s license. We at that point we decided to call for a narcotics dog. Conducted a sniff test and sure enough right away, on the exterior of the vehicle, he had a positive reaction.

Weezy fortunately isn’t involved in this drug trafficking incident. Lil Wayne currently cannot indulge in any drugs or liquor per the terms of his three-year probation for drug and gun possession in Arizona. Hopefully this doesn’t mess up his music.
