Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne has confronted video footage that displayed him punching Young Money member Lil Chuckee on live television over the weekend.

Chuckee also addressed the footage via his own Twitter account.
“Rt: Shout out to all the dumb founded n*ggaz who really think Wayne did that …..1 yourself,” Chuckee tweeted January 1st.
“Lol funny ….n*ggaz wished Wayne could laugh and joke around with them ….n*ggaz are 2 funny (Jae Millz voice) thanx for the publicity” (Lil Chuckee’s Twitter)
The footage was broadcast as a BET New Year’s Eve special over the weekend.
Nicki Minaj and her Young Money crew may have taken over BET’s 106 & Park New Years Eve Bash last night as part of a pre-taped recording but rap’s favorite female MC took her talents to South Beach for a private New Year’s soiree with family and friends. Minaj and hip hop’s most wanted crew, Young Money, entertained an audience of young fans who sent shockwaves through the building after surprise appearance from Lil Wayne at the 106 & Park New Years Eve Bash. Weezy showed up to support Drake for their joint record “Miss Me”, followed by an encore performance of his latest hit “6’7″ featuring Cory Gunz. The Young Money New Years Eve bash marks the label’s first performance together since Lil Wayne has been released from prison. (MTV)
Last November, rumors emerged claiming Wayne punched Drake.
The entire incident reportedly happened following a weekend concert in Las Vegas that marked the finale of Drake’s tour. Rumors started swirling earlier today that Lil Wayne punched the star to discipline Drake for not giving him the proper attention while he was in jail. Drake has a history of stirring up trouble and laying it to rest via his Twitter page. In September, Drake posted a joke that he had married Nicki Minaj that set off an Internet firestorm of rumors.

Following the reports, Drake playfully confirmed the speculation.
“You got the story wrong…Lil Wayne punched me in my arm cause he saw a VW beetle pass by…haaa…YM Forever,” Drake tweeted Saturday (November 13). (Drake’s Twitter)
