Lil Wayne leaves hospital following seizures

Rapper is emitted from medical facility after six days

Lil Wayne has left hospital after spending six days in intensive care following a series of seizures.

The news, confirmed by Lil Wayne’s publicist as well as his Young Money label chairman Mack Maine, follows a dramatic weekend in which the rapper was found in a critical condition and rushed into hospital. Rumours of Wayne’s death had circulated online, however, a tweet from the rapper’s Twitter account assured fans that he was still alive. The tweet read:

However, despite news of his death being exaggerated, Wayne did stay in intensive care until Monday evening (March 18). It is reported that he suffered a seizure on the set of a music video on Wedneday night (March 14) with many speculating that his love of the drink “sizzurp”, a mixture of fizzy drinks, hard sweets and codeine, may have led to his ill health.

Tweeting about Wayne leaving the hospital on Monday night, Mack Maine wrote: “Thanks to Cedar Sinai for everything!!! @liltunechi has been officially been released and is headed home….God is great”.

The rapper was visited by a number of his musical contemporaries during his six-night stay in the Los Angeles medical facility, including Drake and Nicki Minaj.
