The Miami New Times is reporting that Lil Wayne's house on La Gorce Island in Miami Beach was raided by police on Tuesday afternoon. The paper says police entered the home (unclear so far whether by force or not) and "rolled out dollies loaded with the rapper's possessions." The "mass repo" comes after Wayne was hit with a September judgment ordering him to pay the $2 million he owed to a private jet company called Signature Group.

Here's what happened after his failure to pay:

"To recover that cash, Signature Group asked [Judge Lisa S.] Walsh to authorize a 'break order,' basically giving them the right to storm Wayne's house—with or without the rapper's permission—to obtain his assets."

Here's what Wayne had to say on Twitter:

TMZ's word on the situation is that a $30 million art collection was partially plundered. "Our sources say cops brought along someone who valued the items inside the house so they could figure out what to seize," the site writes. "We're also told deputies seized several plaques. It's unclear if they took a prized plaque he got for Tha Carter albums."

A false report of shooting at Wayne's Miami Beach home back in March also saw police entering the building.

On the brighter side of life, Weezy's dropping No Ceilings 2, a sequel to the 2009 mixtape, on Thanksgiving. It'll be his third full-length release in 11 months, following the Free Weezy Album and Sorry 4 the Wait 2. Both were, for the most part, spectacular.
