Michael Phelps Shouts Out Lil Wayne & Young Jeezy After Gold Medal Win
After winning a gold medal in the 200-meter IM race Thursday (Aug. 2), the swimmer gave props to Weezy when asked about what he's been doing in London—when he's not competing. “I've been enjoying myself,” he said, “And, yes, I have been able to have some pretty cool things. I got a tweet from Lil Wayne. [Ryan Lochte and I] got tweets from [Young] Jeezy.”
Following the gold-medal performance, Wayne took to Twitter to commend the 27-year-old. “High praises to my good friend Michael Phelps for becoming the greatest Olympian of all time.USA!!” he wrote.
Phelps and his teammate, Lochte are both down with the rap game. The aforementioned athlete rocked a diamond grill courtesy of Paul Wall, upon accepting his gold medal last weekend.
The U.S.A. continues to dominate in the Olympics, earning 43 medals in the first week of the 17-day competition.
