Rapper Lil Wayne has had an intense week health wise, as Weezy reportedly suffered from multiple seizures last week, and has been in the hospital ever since. Things got controversial after TMZ claimed that the rapper was on his death-bed and in a medically induced coma, yet close friends and family members slammed the report and claimed that he was recovering and not near death. Specifically, Young Money President Mack Maine said that despite the reports from TMZ, Lil Wayne was not in a coma and not relying on tubes to breath. While fans were confused as to which reports to believe, a tweet from Lil Wayne’s account vaguely suggested he was doing fine.

As we recently reported, it’s been speculated by those close to the rapper that he could be released from the hospital any day now. And according to Mack Maine, the rapper was released on Monday. He took to his Twitter account to make the announcement and thank the hospital’s staff for their help:

“Thanks to Cedar Sinai for everything!!! @LilTunechi has been officially been released and is headed home….God is great”


Reports suggest Lil Wayne’s multiple seizures are a result of his syrup drinking habits, but Birdman says that he’s having seizures because he’s working himself too hard. He tells Angie Martinez of Hot 97:

“He had a seizure, Tuesday night. We really been in the hospital since Tuesday and you know all this stuff people saying, there’s no truth to it at all. He had a seizure and we went to the hospital and we been there ever since. He’s doing much better and he’s in great shape right now. … He never left [the hospital], he never left, first of all. He never left and came back. We’ve been in here since Tuesday. To me, honestly, [the seizure’s] just [from] his work ethics. Just how he put in and how he believe in and how hard he work and how much dedication he give to music and to his fans and what he’s trying to accomplish in life. It had nothing to do with drugs. No such thing as that, to me, he just works around the clock. He’s a hard grinder for this music. But it wasn’t nothing about no drugs.”

    Damage control. And for what? I mean didn’t Wayne confirm that he loves syrup and will drink it regardless of what people think about it? Don’t try to clean up now CMB.

      Right. I’m confused…when did they actually start caring about what the public thinks? Weezy is the same rapper who disrespected Emmett Till a few weeks ago and still hasn’t apologized to the family. I’m starting to think all of this is a stunt to make us forget how much of an a-shole he’s been.

    Birdman needs more people and a medical degree before he can tell anyone why Lil Wayne had seizures.

    Lies. We all know damn well it was that damn syrup. And I think the syrup is causing him to lose some brain cells to because his lyrics have been trash since he got addicted. I mean absolute trash. HIs own artists have better verses than him these days. How does Drake come harder than you Weezy? LOL.

    There are plenty of hard workers around the clock. I never heard of Donald Trump or Warren Buffet having seizures from working around the clock. What about Jay or King Bey? I haven’t heard about them having seizure’s either. SMH. Weezy F. Baby is a drug addict and his camp is going to ride his coattails into the ground. Damn shame.

      Preach! They are all nothing but money hungry enablers. And if he dies, they’ll be the main ones crying and acting a fool. I can’t stand people like that.

      Exactly! There’s too many celebrities that work around the clock and don’t have seizures. The best one in the hip hop industry is Diddy. He only sleeps like 2 or 3 hours a day! And I’ve never heard of him being sick or having seizures.

    I guess Birdman thinks the public is as naive as all those artists that sign with them and end up broke as hell just a few years later…

    LOL at Birdman. So seizures are a result of working too hard? Since when?!

    I work long hours and haven’t had a seizure yet! What gives Birdman?!!!!

    It’s sad what greed can do to people. They know damn well that man needs help and he ain’t there because he “works too hard.” Famous people stay losing because the people close to them are too busy kissing a-s instead of keeping it all the way real.
