Lil Wayne Seizure 2017

Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., popularly known as Lil Wayne, has been rushed to the hospital who suffers seizures. And his concert in Las Vegas isn’t looking good.

American hip hop recording artist Lil Wayne was rushed to he Northwestern Memorial hospital in Chicago early on Monday, September 3, due to seizures. Wayne was found unconscious in his hotel room at the Westin in Michigan Avenue.

Multiple sources claims that the New Orleans banging rapper had at least one seizure at the Westin hotel and a second once occur when he in arrived in the hospital. By late afternoon, the American rapper’s camp attempted to have him discharged but his physician’s advised against it.

At the time, sources close to the rapper said that Wayne consumed a large amount “Sizzurp,” a codeine and cough syrup-based drink, prior to the incident.
