Now as many know the events of this past week included Lil Wayne almost buying the farm.
Lil Wayne's visitor's list at Cedars-Sinai hospital in L.A. is quite the star-studded lineup! The Young Money boss, who was hospitalized last week following a series of seizures, has been surrounded by friends and family since he was first re-admitted on Wednesday, March 13 -- including bold-faced names like Nicki Minaj, Drake and Birdman.
Its great that Lil Wayne has support. However, the question of his health along with other rappers namely Rick Ross have come victim not to the guns and shells but to the liquor and chicken.
Conflicting reports about Lil Wayne's health condition have been circulating ever since the rapper was rushed to the hospital to be treated for severe seizures on Tuesday, March 12. He was released on Wednesday, but quickly readmitted after his bodyguards found him unconscious on the floor several hours later.
What would Lil Wayne be representing? What legacy, other than music will Lil Wayne leave behind? The man has hits. The man has education attending University of Houston and University of Phoenix. It is also overlooked that his secondary school was in fact a magnet school. Magnet schools are reserved for accelerated students. The man is no dumb-ass. At least not when it comes to academics. His life choices definitely has some meaning behind it and hopefully the coming days will allow him to address whatever issues he is working out. Maybe this is isolated, a case of a bad batch. If you drink hard you know the feeling. Out cold, wake up the next day, headache, and the shits that come out like golf balls.
On Friday, TMZ originally reported that the rapper's health was in very bad shape, saying that he was being read his last rites. But a source close to the "Lollipop" rapper told Us that those reports have been wildly exaggerated.
"He drank too much sizzurp to get a better high," the source explained to Us. "He needs rehab but he's not close to death or anything. He's fine and just coming down off the high."
Sizzurp is a highly addictive, recreational drug that involves prescription-strength cough syrup, sugary sodas and hard candies, typically sipped out of Styrofoam cups.
If there is news out there believe the scoop will be here.
