The Lil Wayne sex tape caused quite the reaction from folks like Lil Wayne’s ex-girlfriend, Karrine Steffans, as reported by the Inquisitr. Karrine used the opportunity to offer her own personal critique of the sex tape, and Twitter went wild with their reactions to seeing Lil Wayne on video with two women, still reportedly wearing his socks.
Perhaps that’s one of the many reasons that Lil Wayne wants the sex tape off the Internet. According to TMZ, Lil Wayne’s lawyers have sent a cease and desist letter to the website titled Hollywood Street Kings, asking them to remove the video clips of the Lil Wayne sex tape. However, either the Hollywood Street Kings blog isn’t yet aware of the letter or is defying the letter, because as of Saturday, October 17, at 7:30 a.m. ET, a blog post titled “TUNECHI TOSS: SKRIPPERS, SALADS & SEX TAPES … OH MY!!!” by Jacky Jasper was still live on the Hollywood Street Kings website, with a publication date of October 14. Calling the Lil Wayne sex tape an “HSK Exclusive,” the website went on to promote the NSFW video in its own unique speak.
“Some would say Weezy just got caught eatin’ a mouth full. Others would say dude brought his appetite to the menage, but it basically boils down to the rapper toss’in salads on his sex tape … skripper salads!

(WARNING, EXTREMELY NSFW) The HSK exclusive trailer for lil Wayne’s sextape ‘2 GIRLS & AN EMCEE!!!’ has burned down the internet during the last few days. Get ready for part 2!”
Wayne’s lawyers went after the website and ordered the Hollywood Street Kings website to remove the video within five days.
The warning letter contained standard language and legalease about the Lil Wayne sex tape.
“We hereby demand that you immediately cease the use, exploitation and/or distribution of the [LIl Wayne sex] video and that you deliver all copies, including electronic copies, of same to us or destroy such copies immediately and that you desist from this or any other infringement of Mr. Carter’s rights in the future.”
The battle to get Lil Wayne’s sex tape off of the world wide web could indeed be a losing battle. Once a video has made its way onto the Internet, there are plenty of ways that the video can be downloaded and then uploaded to other websites. For example, as soon as the Hollywood Street Kings website uploaded the video, those with the Internet skills could’ve right-clicked and saved the video, or used certain screenshot capture video software to gain their own unique copies of the video, which could then be uploaded to other websites.
As a result, Lil Wayne’s lawyers would have to go after every single website where the sex tape was made available, and that could end up being plenty of websites in the end.
As Lil Wayne legally battled to get his sex tape off the web, his ex-girlfriend Karrine critiqued the Lil Wayne’s sex tape after it was leaked online, as reported by Vibe. Via Steffans’ Twitter account, she stated that she couldn’t protect the man alternately known as Tunechi or Weezy anymore once the sex tape leaks.
“The homie LilTunechi has a sex tape? I know that s*** is short than a mugg… *presses play* Man. This is the saddest little porn tape there ever was. Chile…that LilTunechi sex tape is so dry. Brought flash backs of texting and looking at the ceiling in missionary for 8 years. Sigh.”
