Rapper Lil Wayne reportedly was hospitalized Tuesday night (March 12) in Los Angeles after suffering another bout of seizures. According to TheDrop.FM, the Young Money leader was shooting a video for Birdman’s single ‘Tapout’ when his epileptic fit occurred.

Weezy was rushed to Cedars-Sinai hospital where he was treated and released early Wednesday morning. Sources say that he’s feeling much better now.

This isn’t the first time Tunechi had a medical scare. Last year, he suffered two seizures within a 24-hour period. After the incident, Wayne told MTV News that he was taking medication for his illness. “I don’t want y’all to think I’m on nothing, man. I’m on seizure medicine, man, that’s all,” he explained to the interviewer.

Doctors have also ordered the rapper to remain hydrated throughout the day, but, Wayne is ignoring their wishes. “They said I gotta drink four water bottles a day, that’s what the doctors say,” said Wayne. “I just came from the doctor. I ain’t drinking four water bottles, but everything’s good.”

Um, we think he should reconsider his own prognosis and drink plenty water and stay on his meds. But, hey, it’s Wayne’s world and we’re just living in it.

Get well, Weezy!
