Lil Wayne Joined The Zulu Nation, 9th Wonder Releases Statement

Update: 9th Wonder releases statement confirming Lil Wayne's Zulu Nation membership.

Many found it odd when Q-Tip called Atlanta trio Migos "Tha Truth" on Twitter earlier this month and now, followers of the legendary producer have had something else unexpected come across their timelines.

According to Q-Tip's Twitter, Lil Wayne has become the newest member of The Zulu Nation.

"@LilTunechi is now a member of the ZULU NATION! Join us," he said in the first tweet. "Help me in welcoming @LilTunechi to fold of the Zulus." Wayne has yet to publicly comment on his involvement with the group or explain the reasoning for joining.

Tip has been one of the group's most vocal members during the last few years. He also has had an album in the works for quite some time entitled The Last Zulu.

The Universal Zulu Nation is an organization created by Hip Hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa. The goal of the group is to use Hip Hop to spread awareness of social and political issues. Other members of the famed collective include KRS-One, De La Soul, Public Enemy, Rakim, Ice Cube, DJ Kool Herc.
