Lil Wayne just can’t escape these seizures. He spent a week in the Intensive Care Unit back in March after suffering multiple severe seizures that nearly killed him, and now he’s been admitted again for a further one, but has tweeted since to confirm he’s okay.
Wheezy checked in to to Los Angeles radio station Power 106 after his release and told DJ Felli Fel about his troubles. "The thing is, man, the bad news is, I'm an epileptic, so I'm prone to seizures," he explained. "This isn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure. I've had a bunch of seizures; y'all just never hear about it. This time it got real bad because I got three of 'em in a row, and on the third one, my heart rate went down to, like, 30 percent. Basically, I could've died soon. That's why it was so serious. The reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest and overworking myself. That's typical me, though." But to really prove you’re okay, you need to tweet. That’s what celebs do, and that’s what Lil Wayne has done. "I'm fine. Thank u," he posted at 11:23 a.m. on Wednesday.

The rapper might be feeling sorry for himself at the moment, but he’s also been apologizing. His guest verse on Future's "Karate Chop" remix caused controversy and offence to the family of Emmett Till. “As a recording artist, I have always been interested in word play. My lyrics often reference people, places and events in my music, as well as the music that I create for or alongside other artists.”
