Lil Wayne Reportedly Hospitalized After Suffering Multiple Epileptic Seizures

Wednesday, 06 Sep, 2017

On early Sunday, RollingStone reported yet another seizure from the American rapper, Lil Wayne while he is in his Chicago hotel room.

According to reports, Wayne was found unconscious in his hotel room in Chicago on Sunday, and suffered a second seizure after being rushed to the city's Northwestern Memorial Hospital. According to TMZ.com, Wayne had suffered at least one seizure and suffered another in the hospital.

Epilepsy is the fourth most common neurological disorder, explains the Epilepsy Foundation, which defines it as "a chronic disorder, the hallmark of which is recurrent, unprovoked seizures".

His condition now stabilized, Lil Wayne has no choice other than to rest.

He canceled his show in Vegas that was scheduled for Sunday. Sources close to the rapper also told TMZ that he is now resting at this time. "I've had a bunch of seizures, y'all just never hear about them", he said.

Wayne's health has been up and down over the past few years.

This is far from the first seizure that Lil Wayne has suffered, as he has had a consistent issue with them for years.

He had spent several days in hospital in 2013 and told a radio station that he is epileptic.

Wayne was set to play Drais nightclub last night alongside Rae Sremmurd and DJ Franzen. "That's just typical me though", he explain in an interview. In 2012 the star suffered seizures while on board, and his private plane was required to make an emergency landing.

The New Orleans-born rapper began his professional career aged nine, when he became the youngest artist to be signed by Cash Money Records.
