Lil Wayne is willing to pick up the world and drop it on your fucking head. But in a pinch, a skateboard will apparently do the job.

According to TMZ, Weezy and his entourage are being investigated for their second skateboard-related assault in two months. A fan who'd been denied a photo of our boy took one anyhow, allegedly prompting Weezy to threaten the fan by saying, "Don't you know all it takes is a word and these motherfuckers are going to fuck you up?"

The fan says he was then hit over the head from behind with a skateboard and suffered a concussion, bleeding, and vertigo.

Last month, Lil Wayne was accused of assaulting a photographer outside the Miami Beach Community Church. In February, he hurt his own shoulder during a botched ollie at his Miami mansion. In August of last year, Weezy got nine stitches after another skating failure in St. Louis.

The good news for YMCMB supporters doesn't end with the fact that their hero is no longer on the receiving end of his skateboard mishaps. There's more ...

On the day of the alleged assault, Weezy announced that he'd pulled off the frontside 180 ollie that had been stymieing him for so long.

Oh, and more good news: Lil Wayne won four Billboard Music Awards last night, including Top Male Artist, Top Rap Artist, Top Rap Album, and Top R&B Song.

However, he was not there to collect the trophies in person. So rest easy one more night, Miami, because those things look like they could fuck you up for real.
