Lil Wayne released from Chicago hospital after seizures

Posted September 08, 2017

Although under doctor's orders he'll take a break for the next couple of weeks, Wayne will keep it pushing.

Lil Wayne experienced a series of seizures in Chicago, Illinois on Friday, hospitalizing the rapper and forcing him to cancel a planned Sunday night appearance at Drai's Beachclub in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Sources close to the rapper told TMZ that the seizures that forced him into the hospital Sunday were due to a super busy schedule mixed with the fact he was not getting enough sleep.

'My dad is doing fine everyone! "He's epileptic thats the reality of it". You know, so it's something that we're gonna have to deal with for the rest of his life and, you know, we'll just make sure he's popping meds and try to force him to get some rest, but sometimes he doesn't do that.

When the TMZ cameraman asked if he was going to retire, Bryant quickly said "hell no. We just not gon' let that disease stop us". Following similar lean rumors surrounding the 2016 incident, representatives for Wayne told TMZ at the time that the incident was caused by a lack of required medication. He said it has nothing to do with that, and everything do with his disease. We spoke with people who were backstage at each show, and they all said the same thing ... He's an epileptic. It's a disease he has to deal with.

It's believed that the likes of Nicki Minaj and Drake have already been in contact with Lil Wayne's team, having been assured that the rapper is doing better, assuring them that he'll be fine as he continues to recover from the multiple seizures.
