Despite recent reports and trending topics, Lil Wayne is not dead. The "Lil Wayne Murdered" trending topic hit the 'net Sunday afternoon, but there are no actual sources to back up the claims. This isn't the first time the New Orleans-bred rapper was rumored to have been killed. In fact, Lil Wayne's daughter Reginae was a victim of a false death report earlier this year. However, Lil Wayne is in good company. Kanye West, Lady Gaga (2009's most Googled artist) and the Jonas Brothers have all been rumored to have died at some point this year.

While this rumor is false, one rumor surrounding the Grammy-winning rapper has been confirmed as true. Wayne and R&B singer Nivea welcomed a baby boy -- Weezy's second child born this year and fourth overall -- last week. Young Money rapper Mack Maine broke the news via Twitter. "I'm currently at da hospital!!! Few minutes away from havin anutha nephew," he wrote. "Uncle Mack ya heard me ... LUV!!!!!" An hour after his first baby-related tweet Maine announced that the newest addition to the Carter clan was born. "Thank god!!! Baby Neal was born healthy to Nivea Nash and Dwayne Carter!!!! Thanx 4 all the blessings n support!!!! Love ya heard me!!!"
