Lil Wayne Was Hospitalized For Seizures, Forced To Cancel A Show In Las Vegas (UPDATE)

September 5, 2017 / Posted by:

I’m starting to think the part in “A Milli” when Lil Wayne declaresmotherfucker, I’m ill” wasn’t actually a hot hook, but an accurate description of Lil Wayne’s general health. According to TMZ, Lil Wayne is ill again, motherfuckers.

Sources tell TMZ that Lil Wayne was hospitalized on Sunday in Chicago after he was found unconscious in his hotel room. He had reportedly suffered at least one epilepsy-related seizure. He was rushed to a nearby hospital where he had yet another seizure. The sources claim Lil Wayne’s people were trying to get him discharged from the hospital ASAP in order to make it to a gig later than night in Las Vegas. Well, the only show he was playing that Sunday night was one he could put on from the comfort of his hospital bed (The Bed Goes Up, Bed Goes Down Tour 2017).

A rep for Lil Wayne confirmed the news to TMZ, adding that his show in Las Vegas had officially been cancelled. TMZ’s sources tell them that hospital doctors advised keeping Lil Wayne for a lil while longer to monitor his health. So how is Lil Wayne doing now? According to his daughter, Reginae Carter, he’s doing well. She also would like you to pay no attention to people whispering rumors about her dad.

What rumors, you say? Oh, I have no idea. But, if I had to wager a guess, just a casual speculation, it might be the one about TMZ implying that Lil Wayne’s love of lean might be the reason he ended up in the hospital.

It’s no secret that Lil Wayne has been known to sip sizzurp (aka soda, candy, and codeine-based cough syrup). It’s maybe what put him in the hospital with seizures the last time. And the time before that. And quite possibly the time before that. TMZ notes that Lil Wayne gave a high-energy performance before he was hospitalized.

Seizures are no joke, but to add in the possibility of Lil Wayne’s being triggered by drug drink? Sipping from a double styrofoam cup filled with the sleepy devil’s party juice is a dangerous dance. Hell, drinking most anything syrupy and candy-flavored out of a giant styrofoam cup spells trouble. I can’t remember the time I drank a Route 44 cherry limeade from Sonic. That’s not a typo – I’m positive I suffered some sort of permanent memory loss from drinking that much red dye and sugar.

UPDATE: Sources tell TMZ that Lil Wayne is out of the hospital, and that he’s been ordered to take it easy for two weeks. Paging Lil Wayne’s #1 fan Drake – please put on your cutest candy striper outfit, you’re needed at Lil Wayne’s bedside!
