Rapper Lil’Wayne Hospitalized After Being Found Unconscious In Hotel Room
34-year-old rapper Lil-Wayne was hospitalized yet again this weekend for his ongoing bout with epilepsy and the seizures that come with it, TMZ reports.
He had been due to perform in Las Vegas on Sunday night.
The rap star, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr, was treated a year ago after suffering two minor seizures.
He told the media: “This wasn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh…I have had a bunch of seizures, you just never hear about them.”
Lil Wayne says he suffers seizures because of stress, lack of rest and overworking himself.
Worried fans have been tweeting #prayforweezy after his latest seizures were reported.
His reps confirms he suffered multiple seizures and his Vegas show has been canceled. He is said to be currently resting.
The New Orleans-born rapper began his professional career aged nine, when he became the youngest artist to be signed by Cash Money Records.
His five Grammy Award wins include the best rap album award in 2008 for Tha Carter III and best rap performance for No Problem with Chance the Rapper & 2 Chainz.
