Lil Wayne was rushed to the hospital Sunday Sept 3rd following a seizure where he was found unconscious in the floor of his Westin hotel room. He experienced another after visiting Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago where he team then rushed to get him back out of the hospital despite doctors advising against it. He had a show in Vegas at Drais Beachclub at midnight but doctors recommended keeping him as he’s had planes landed before due to him having seizures in the air.

The Louisiana rapper has been struggling with seizures in recent years due to his insistence on drinking the popular drink lean, a mixture of codeine and champagne as he makes it. To downplay the drink’s potency he claims to have had seizures since he was a child, yet he continues to commit seizure inducing behavior. Also, he isn’t the only rapper having this problem as Rich Homie Quan collapsed in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park in 2014 landing head first into a rail from the same thing and the stories continue. We’re just going to keep our fingers crossed and wish for the best for Wayne and hope he stops with the self destructive behavior.
