Rapper Lil Wayne is reportedly out of the hospital and taking some time off after suffering multiple seizures.

Once found, he was transported to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he suffered a second minor attack.

In his past interviews, the rapper admitted that he regularly takes a medication to control his neurological disorder.

His daughter Reginae Carter wrote on Twitter that her father is doing "fine" after being hospitalized over the weekend.


Sources told TMZ that Wayne's seizures were a result of exhaustion, denying rumors that Wayne's hospitalization had to do with drinking lean, also known as sizzurp-a "prescription-strength, cough syrup-laced drink, usually made with sugary fruit-flavored soda and dissolved Jolly Ranchers", the Daily Beast explains.

"The bad news is I'm an epileptic, I'm prone to seizures", he said in 2013. "Like, this isn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure". Thanks for the concerns. A Las Vegas show, which he had been scheduled to perform late Sunday night, was canceled, the rep added. "I've had a bunch of seizures, y'all just never hear about them". Because of the seizure incident, the club posted an announcement about the cancellation of Wayne's performance. "Everyone at Drai's wishes Lil Wayne a speedy recovery during this time".

Lil Wayne is an American hip hop recording artist and considered to be the youngest member of Cash Money Records together with fellow Orleans-based rapper Lil' Doogie.
