Facebook hoax: Lil Wayne Died

Don't click on any Facebook posts purporting to link to a video about rapper Lil Wayne dying of a drug overdose. It's a hoax and a self-replicating scam. At last report Lil Wayne was alive and well.

Users attempting to access the video are asked to click a "Share" button, which spreads the scam to people on the user's friend list before redirecting to a survey page (which is how the scammers make their money). There is no video.
