Lil Wayne found unconscious in his hotel
Lil Wayne was hospitalised on Sunday (Sept. 3rd) after being found unconscious in his hotel room following multiple seizures. The 34-year-old rapper was rushed to Northwestern Memorial hospital in Chicago.
Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr, was treated a year ago after suffering two minor seizures and in that occasion the rapper told radio station Power 106 that he was epileptic and prone to having fits.
The artist had been due to perform at Drai’s Beachclub in Las Vegas on Sunday night alongside Rae Sremmurd – being on tour with him. His crew announced he would have been discharged in a first moment, then doctors apparently advised against releasing the singer. It is unclear as of yet whether Wayne will be discharged and he has yet to comment on the situation on his social media pages.
A representative for the star later confirmed to TMZ that Wayne’s Vegas gig was cancelled and the singer is “currently resting”.
