In 2012, Lil Wayne made an announcement: he would officially retire from hip hop in coming years, due to having four children and wanting to spend more time with them during their younger years. His career has attracted a strong following thus far and has managed to win him 4 Grammy awards, out of 15 nominations yet his new single, 'Krazy', is unlikely to live up to that level of critique, however.
After joining Cash Money Records in 1991 at the age of nine, Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. has spent 23 years in the hip hop world. One would think that, in that time, a person would be able to learn that words like 'soap' cannot (or should not) be awkwardly forced to rhyme with words like 'code'. Perhaps in this time, a person would also expand their vocabulary enough to not rely on using the 'n word' 18 times in a single song.
DJ Infamous handled the production of 'Krazy', perhaps owing to the rather generic beat which resonates throughout the entire track, steadily convincing you that you are suffering from tinnitus. This abhorrent chirping is coupled with a rhythmic thumping of drums and base, unfortunately making the 'music' the best part of the track.

The 31 year-old rap star blasts Scooter Braun after he allegedly made some negative comments about fellow Young Money artist Lil Twist.
Lil Wayne is not happy with the longtime manager of Justin Bieber, Scooter Braun, after he allegedly made negative comments about Lil Twist.

The rapper welcomed Kanye West, Lil Wayne, TLC, J. Cole, Wale and more on stage in the two hour, sold-out show.
For the 16,000 fans who attended Drake's OVO Fest show in Toronto, the whole evening was full of perfect "I Was There" moments with appearances from the exalted lords and ladies of R&B and hiphop royalty.
With an acronym that stands for 'October's Very Own' (October referring to Drake's birth month), OVO Festival is an event that has seen success in recent years and looks to get even bigger still. Previous years have seen performances from Stevie Wonder, Snoop Lion, Eminem, Jay Z and Nicki Minaj but the Canadian rapper and organiser outdid himself at OVO Fest 2013.

The rapper apologizes profusely for his words in a recent freestyle
Most rappers would give anything to work with Drake right now, but for J Cole, the sacrifice was bigger than he first thought. Having blindly agreed to rap on 'Jodeci Freestyle,' his freestyle ended up offending some, but he’s since expressed contrition for his mistake and would like very much to just move on, according to MTV.
J. Cole in London
"In a recent verse on the song 'Jodeci Freestyle,' I said something highly offensive to people with Autism. Last week, when I first saw a comment from someone outraged about the lyric, I realized right away that what I said was wrong," Cole wrote in an apology letter to advocacy organization Autism Speaks. He posted the note on his Dreamvillian site on Sunday.

The video during the filming of which Lil Wayne was seen dancing on a crumpled US flag has been released - without the flag-stepping shot.
According to Lil Wayne "The end of time is, like, an hour away," he sings solemnly at the beginning of the new video to his latest single 'God Bless America.' Bad boy Wayne isn't exactly singing his country's praises in the song, describing the States as "Sweet land of kill 'em all and let 'em die." But what has really stuck in patriots' craw is the viral amateur video showing Wayne stepping/dancing/jumping/walking/whatever on a giant fallen US flag.
Lil Wayne: The Aftermath Of The Stamp.
That Lil Wayne ruffled some feathers with the quickly sensationalised faux pas is an understatement; he received death threats from those who said they hoped the seizure-prone hiphop artist died.
Uh-oh: Badboy rapper Lil Wayne is in Big trouble again after allegedly stepping on a fallen American flag. He now swears the innocence of his actions but critics - including the US Military - are up in arms.
Rapper Lil Wayne is feeling the heat of patriotic Americans' fury after a video began to circulate showing him filming the music video for new track 'God Bless Amerika' which involves a flag falling to the floor behind him and him dancing upon it.
Once the huge flag has fallen, a crowd of motionless people are revealed standing behind Wayne, in homage to his Afro-American roots growing up in tough districts of New Orleans.
Wayne's lower body would have probably been cut out of the shot in the finished video but a filming bystander captured the moment when the 30 year-old rap star began to dance and walk all over the flaggy heap on the floor.
The rapper might find himself in hot water after his unpatriotic act was caught on camera
Lil Wayne was filmed appearing to be treading on the American flag repeatedly this weekend, with the rapper filming scenes for his anti-establishment track 'God Bless Amerika.' The footage was uploaded to YouTube on Sunday (June 16) and shows Wayne rapping in front of an American flag which is then dropped to his feet, with the rapper continuing to go about his business and repeatedly walk over the flag for the rest of the video shoot.
Weezy and his people haven't commented on the scenario yet, and currently we're not sure if his move was done in ill-taste or this was just an ill-timed shot of the rapper. The lyrics fr the song go something like this: ""My country 'tis of thee / Sweet land of kill 'em all and let 'em die / God bless Amerika / This ole' godless Amerika," it's hard to defend the rapper's actions as being unintentional and this could land the New Orleans-native in some trouble.

After holding his album back for almost a year, the rapper will finally release Excuse My French over the summer
It's good to have friends in high places, and for French Montana this was the case when it came to securing the guest spots on his upcoming debut album Excuse My French, with the rapper revealing that all but one person was willing to feature on the album for nothing. Rapper Max B, who is currently serving a prison sentence, was the only one who deemed his services to be worth paying for, with the long list of other famous rap names showing up as a favour to the Bronx rapper.
French, who has Moroccan ancestry, was speaking on MTV's RapFix Live when he gave wind of the generosity of his album features, saying that only one of the twenty three guest vocals sent him a bill for their services. His long-time friend Max B, who is currently serving a 75-year sentence in prison, was the only one to ask to be paid for his appearance on the opening track on the album, with French telling RapFix, "The only person I paid was Max B. That's about it."
It's the comeback you've all been waiting for folks...
There have been plenty of music comebacks this year, from David Bowie to Justin Timberlake to Daft Punk. But we all know the one you’ve really been waiting for, don’t we? It’s Paris Hilton of course! Tragically MIA from the music industry since her 2006 debut LP Paris (which, we were shocked to re-discover, went to number six on the Billboard charts and sold around 200,000 copies in the States,) she’s confirmed that she’s back in the music making game! And has signed a record deal with, um, a hip hop label!
Showbiz411 first reported the story, Paris is apparently already recording her second album and is putting it out on the world famous rap label CashMoney! And Lil Wayne’s possibly going to be one it! So does that mean that the multi-millionaire heiress is going to be spitting some mad rhymes on her forthcoming material? Not quite, though she insists that it will be a markedly different sound from her previous record. We can’t remember what her previous sound was, so we’re just going to nod blindly in agreement with her.
“This is a lot different than my first album,” Paris Showbiz 411. “It’s really going to be house music.” Sounds great! Perhaps. Ever the business woman, Hilton also revealed she was back at work on her fragrance ranges. “I’m getting ready to launch my 17th perfume,” she said. “And I’m also starting the Paris Hilton Foundation for children’s causes.”

The Morocco/Bronx rapper will release his debut album, Excuse My French, this summer, following numerous delays
Rapper French Montana managed to get every guest spot on his new album, bar one, completely free; with the Morocco/Bronx hip hop star revealing in a recent interview that only Max B sent him a bill for his services. He told RapFix that despite amassing the help for so many people, all were willing to help him out free of charge. Although the rapper might be kicking himself soon, if it turns out they all forgot and his proclamation reminds them to send him a bill.
On Wednesday (May 22), the rapper told RapFix Live that his friend and current prison inmate Max B was the only person who wanted to be paid for an appearance on the debut album, Excuse My French, although whether the B gets to spend the money (he's currently serving a 75 year sentence) is another matter. French said, "The only person I paid was Max B. That's about it."

The heiress teams up with Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj and co.
Paris Hilton looks to have her career path mapped out for the next few years, as the heiress is apparently in talks with Cash Money, the gratuitous record label/franchise run by Lil Wayne. The heiress told Showbiz 411 that she is lining up a move into the chain that includes Drake and Nicki Minaj as well as Weezy.
Following her stand-out role in the video for 'Tapout', the track from the Birdman, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Future and Mack Maine collective Rich Gang, it seems as though Wayne's keen business acumen has made sure her talents didn't go unnoticed. Paris has also been spotted partying with the Cash Money crew on a number of occasions, even inviting Wayne to her recent birthday bash.
Paris Hilton is going to be back making music!

The Smurfs are back in a brilliant movie sequel that sees them take on evil magician Gargamel for a second time as he makes another attempt at harnessing the blue power of the Smurf people. This time, he has successfully created a group of similar creatures called Naughties, which he has plans to use to lure the impressionable Smurfette to him in order to finally win their potent magic. Aware of the kidnapping, the rest of the Smurfs band together on a rescue mission alongside their human acquaintances Patrick and Grace Winslow who agree to help them get to Smurfette and convince her that she belongs at home.
Right Said Fred, the nineties duo responsible for the number one 1991 hit 'I'm Too Sexy', has got involved in the promotions for the new film, marking the celebrations of Global Smurfs Day on June 22nd 2013, the day after 'The Smurfs 2' is released on the 21st. They have recorded a brand new track called 'I'm Too Smurfy', which isn't too dissimilar from their debut hit as you'd imagine, in a video featuring people in Smurf costumes getting funky and the duo painting their faces blue in honour of the Smurfs' return.
Lil Wayne dropped by PepsiCo as a spokesperson for Mountain Dew following his outrageously offensive lyrics in 'Karate Chop'
Lil Wayne will no longer serve as a spokesperson for Mountain Dew following the controversy surrounding a line in his song 'Karate Chop,' which was released in February. In the song he eloquently discusses the merits of rough sex, comparing it to the murder of Emmett Till.
"Pop a lot of pain pills, 'bout to put rims on my skateboard wheels ... beat that p***y up like Emmett Till." - No that isn't the Facebook status of a fourteen-year-old, sexually frustrated boy, but the line that landed Weezy, 30, in trouble and cost him his partnership with Mountain Dew - TMZ first reported. The drinks brand, owned by PepsiCo, have since severed all ties with the 'rapper', although it is unknown whether the existing commercials featuring Wayne will continue to air (they probably wont).
Lil Wayne was rightly dropped by the drinks company.
We can hear wedding bells in Weezy's future... or maybe not. You never really know with this one.
Lil Wayne is engaged! Or he might be just messing with everyone. After what could be called a pretty downer week – suffering another seizure and offending the family of Emmett Till in one of his songs – Weezy might finally have some good news to share with the word. Actually, he may have already shared them, though with no official statement, there is the tiny possibility that he’s pulling everyone’s leg. It’s not unlike Weezy to have a laugh with his fans.
According to a report from Sky News, the rapper “accidentally” blurted out the news of his relationship status in the trailer for Vinny Guadagnino’s upcoming reality show The Show With Vinny. You’ll notice the quote marks around the word accidentally, because this wouldn’t be the first time Weezy has fooled everyone about his relationship with Dhea Sodano. The couple have been together for two years and on Valentine’s Day this year, Lil Wayne tweeted: 'She said yes!' before adding: 'Ohhhhhhh now I see why! I meant 'she said yes' to being my valentine!!! Hahahahahahaha! Y'all krazy (sic).'
Yes, the rapper is a bit of a prankster when it comes to his beloved, but now everybody just wants to know, are they or aren’t they? Unfortunately, we might have to watch The Show to find out for sure.

Rapper hospitalised with seizures again, sends tweet to reassure fans
Lil' Wayne has tweeted that he's fine, to reassure worried fans, after he was hospitalized with yet another seizure. TMZ reported that the rapper was taken once again to Cedars-Sinai hospital by his bodyguards on Tuesday night (April 30, 2013). The report states that he suffered a single seizure but was released the following morning, after receiving treatment.
30 year-old Wayne suffered multiple seizures recently and ended up in an ICU unit at Cedars-Sinai, where a number of his celebrity pals - including Nicki Minaj - visited him in hospital to wish him well. There were conflicting reports at the time regarding just how ill he was, though has business colleagues and label mates were keen to convey that he was doing just fine. Wayne himself has since been speaking on the radio about his epilepsy, explaining that he has suffered from seizures since he was a child. Speaking on Power 106 Los Angeles, he explained. "I'm epileptic; I'm prone to seizures. I've had a bunch of seizures, y'all just never hear about them but this time it got real bad because I had three of them in a row and on the third one my heart rate went down to 30%."
He admitted "I could have died" and revealed that stress and lack of rest triggers the seizures. "Overworking myself," he admitted, was the root of the problem. Following this most recent seizure, he tweeted "I'm fine. Thank u," to make sure his fans weren't worrying too much about him.

This time he's okay, but this is getting silly now
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.

Rapper finally speaks out over shocking lyric
Lil Wayne has finally come out and spoken with regret about his much controversial jibe at Emmett Till that he made in an unofficial version of the song Karate Chop remixed by Future. The line was targeting Till, who was brutally mutilated and murdered aged just 14 in 1955, for allegedly whistling at a white woman. His death was a huge spark in the equal rights movement by black Americans in the mid-20th century and Wayne’s lyrics have been met with widespread condemnation from Till’s family and many others besides.
Now the rapper has finally come out and made an apology to the family of Till in an open letter. “As a father myself, I cannot imagine the pain that your family has had to endure” he wrote. “I would like to take a moment to acknowledge your hurt, as well as the letter you sent to me via your attorneys.” Saying that he’d never reference Emmett Till in his music again and said he’d never perform the lyrics he’d written that had caused the outrage.
Lil Wayne finished his letter by writing “I have tremendous respect for those who paved the way for the liberty and opportunities that African-Americans currently enjoy. As a business owner who employs several African-American employees and gives philanthropically to organizations that help youth to pursue their dreams my ultimate intention is to uplift rather than degrade our community.” It’s about time.

The Smurfs return following a harrowing experience lost in New York while being pursued by the evil wannabe wizard Gargamel in 'The Smurfs'. Their plight is not over, however, as Gargamel will stop at nothing to harness the power of the blue creatures. Currently an icon of sorcery in Paris, he creates two Smurf-like creatures called Naughties who he uses to tempt the impressionable Smurfette in a life of mischief as she holds the valuable secret of the spell to turn the Naughties into real Smurfs. After she is kidnapped, her family and friends embark on a mission to save her, whether she wants to be or not, and enlists the help of their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow to take down Gargamel once and for all and lead Smurfette back on the straight and narrow.

Lil' Wayne and Nicki Minaj get up close and personal in new music video
This could well be a contender for ‘most misleading song title of the year,’ because the scenes contained herein are far from looking like any high school that any of us here at Contactmusic have ever set foot in. In fact, you only have to wait a little under 30 seconds before you have an eyeful of Nicki Minaj’s ample buttocks. more like two eyefuls, in fact. We learnt a lot at high school but instantly, this video has taught us much about neon pink swim suits and Nicki Minaj’s butt cheeks than we ever realised we needed to know.
Lil' Wayne's back with studio album number whatever and it's exactly the kind of sonically-predictable, intellectually-debased, single-minded chunk of culturally-razed mainstream hip-hop that you may have come to expect from Lil' Wayne. The 30 year-old rapper with a successful career in his back pocket has, over time, honed his interests down to two major topics: 1. His own penis and 2. women's vaginas. As you may well expect, this leads to a fairly limiting - and pretty brutal - listening experience for anyone that can actually see past their own genitalia.
The opening track, IANAHB, starts with a bold, emotive piano lament; it's dramatic, fierce and moving. It's beautiful, in a strangely aggressive way. High hopes then, for the next 15 tracks. Instantly: HOPES SHATTERED, for there comes the open mouth of Lil' Wayne, vile imagery dribbling forth uncontrollably as he vomits up the first thing that comes into his low-rent mind, with little thought of the kind of image he might be portraying of himself. "I'm in the crib," he starts. That's ok, he's in the crib, that's promising, right? "Butt naked bitch," he continues. Heart sinks. No time to pause to consider. "She says my dick could be the next black president." OH. That's where we're at. Really? THAT'S where we're at? Listening to a 30 year-old man telling us "I be grindin' on these hos like a half-pipe," hoping that our eyes don't roll all the way out of heads with riled disdain.
Has no one moved on from this? Is mainstream hip-hop suffering some kind of terrifying Peter Pan complex, in which Peter Pan is a snotty-nosed teenager with his hands stuck down the front of his Calvin Kleins, trying to impress his pals with his sexual bragging rights and stopping the weight of his weaponry from pulling his Adidas track-pants down? Talking of weaponry, one of the few tracks in which Lil' Wayne's train of thought actually removes itself from the gusset of some young maiden's lingerie, is 'Gunwalk' (feat. Gudda Gudda, for what it's worth). Herein, Wayne explains what we've all been dying to know all these years (and no, it's not 'how to be the perfect girlfriend,' though he does get to that later on, so just hold tight). why the walk, Wayne? Why the limp? OH, THE LIMP?? Funny you asked. That's his gun walk. Yeah, he walks like that 'cos he's got a gun. The gun makes him walk like that. It's because of the gun that he has. Guns are scary. He's got one. It makes him walk with a limp. The limp is a direct result of the gun. If you didn't know that BEFORE listening to 'Gunwalk,' you sure as well will by the end of it. It's a simple song, with a retarded message. A retarded message that he repeats ad infinitum, to the point that you start to wonder if an MP3 can skip in the same manner that CDs and records do. Still, it's a welcome break from all the pussy chatter.

Lil' Wayne to recover at home 6 days after hospital admission
Six days ago, uncontrollable seizures landed Lil Wayne in hospital, while conflicting reports of his critical condition and possible death circled the media. Now, though, TMZ report that he’s been released from from the ICU to recuperate at home.
The news came just hours after it was reported that his condition had not improved enough to be moved out of the intensive care unit. Weezy took to Twitter to reassure his fans, posting: “I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love,” while the president of the Young Money record label, Mack Maine told everyone: “Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game...thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you all soon.” He added: “We will be releasing an official statement shortly but don't believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe...that's false!!” This weekend, the rapper’s famous buddies came to wish him well at his bedside, with Nicki Minaj, Drake, Chris Paul and Birdman all purchasing grapes, we’re sure. Reports suggest that this was a form of drug overdose, brought on by Wayne’s penchant for Codeine, which is the main ingredient in his drink: ‘Sizzurp’.
Recovering - Lil Wayne

But the rapper still suffering from suspected drug overdose
Six days after being admitted to hospital for further seizures, Lil Wayne is apparently still healing up in Los Angeles, though Yahoo! claims that the situation isn’t quite as life threatening as TMZ were making out, when they wrote earlier today (March 18, 2013) that he was still in intensive care.
According to an insider who spoke to Yahoo! the rapper is still in hospital but is expected to be released shortly, continuing to say that he was never near death and there was never a prayer circle set up for him. Further to that, a rep for the rapper said "Lil Wayne is doing well, thank you for your concern.”
TMZ had earlier reported a much grimmer scenario, saying that the rapper was under close surveillance from hospital staff and was still in intensive care. Apparently Wayne had received a gamut of visitors too, from Nicki Minaj to Birdman and Drake. It’s believed that this latest seizures has come from Wayne’s use of codeine, with doctors apparently having to pump the star’s stomach three times. This is the second time that Wayne has been in hospital for seizures; last year a flight he was on had to take an emergency landing after the rapper started going into convulsions, causing him to be hospitalized there. He’s had a long history of codeine issues, though recently had suggested he had given up the prescription drug.

Rapper Lil' Wayne is in ICU but it's not clear just how ill he is
Just how ill is Lil’ Wayne? The rapper was admitted to hospital last week after suffering multiple, apparently serious seizures. He was admitted on Tuesday (March 12, 2013) and then reportedly re-admitted to the ICU the following day, after he was discharged but found lying unconscious on the floor, by his bodyguard. Sources at the hospital told TMZ that Lil’ Wayne was in a critical condition, but stabilizing. However, several members of his circle are keen to convince his fans that he’s doing just fine.
Nicki Minaj visited Wayne in hospital on Saturday (March 16, 2013) and took a huge bundle of balloons with her and she’s not the only hip-hop superstar to pop in to Cedars-Sinai hospital to see how he’s doing. Birdman and Drake have also taken some time out to pay the guy a visit and messages have been sent from Lil’ Wayne’s Twitter page to reassure people that he’s doing ok. On Friday, a message was sent out to say “I’m good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.” Birdman, his label boss tweeted “My son is feelin Good. will be home real soon” and according to The Guardian, denied the reports that Lil Wayne was in an induced coma and breathing through tubes. “Dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe … that's false!!" tweeted Young Money president Mack Maine. "Wayne is alive and well!” he’s reported as saying.
There have been no photos of Lil Wayne made available since he was admitted to hospital and conflicting reports of his state of health make it difficult to ascertain just how sick he is.
Continue reading: Just How Sick Is Lil' Wayne? Conflicting Reports Over Rapper's Seizures
Lil Wayne's health has been something of a concern over the past few months and though he has suffered more seizures over the past week, and even had a brief stint in hospital, he has used twitter to reassure fans that he's a-okay.
I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.— Lil Wayne WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) March 16, 2013
Weezy first missed a court date earlier in the year when he reportedly suffered seizures during a plane journey which forced the aircraft to land early. At the time it was brushed off as 'dehydration', but since the rapper suffered further seizures in a considerably more public sphere - the set of a Nicki Minaj video - there's no way of him putting this latest health scare down to lack of fluids.
Weezy suffers repeat of the illness he had last year
Less than a year after he was initially reported as suffering from seizures, Lil Wayne's hospitalized again. He has been taken back to the medics amid fresh reports that he’s once again suffered an attack.
You might recall that, last year, a flight that the rapper was on had to be grounded after Weezy started suffering several seizures. At the time of the seizures, the MC was flying from Texas to Los Angeles. However when he began to convulse it forced the plane's staff to act and execute an emergency landing in Louisiana, whereupon the star was subsequently taken to a nearby by hospital. After that, he admitted that he had been taking anti-seizure drugs. It doesn’t look like they’ve worked too well though; either that or the issue is something far more serious than first thought.
According to TMZ, Wayne suffered new seizures on Tuesday night (March 12, 2013) after shooting a music video in Los Angeles, and was subsequently taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital. Weezy was released several hours later, early on Wednesday morning, and is apparently doing much better now. There has been no comment from the rapper or anyone in his camp. These are worrying times for the star though, given that his new album I Am Not A Human Being II is out on March 26, 2013, which should mean all-manner of promotional work surrounding it. Right now though the focus has to be on working out what’s wrong.

LIl Wayne is back in hospital having suffered yet another seizure.
The latest celebrity to come down with a mysterious ailment has been none other than Lil' Wayne. After experiencing another bout of seizures (Lil' Wayne has been struggling with the symptom in the past), the rapper was rushed to the Cedars-Sinai hospital on Tuesday.
Weezy was released quickly - he was out of the hospital on Wednesday, but this might be a troubling sign. He has experienced seizures on two separate occasions in the past, both last year and both while flying. The rapper is already on medication for the problem, according to NY Daily News.
Maybe that curious celebrity ailment, exhaustion, was to blame here? Luckily, this latest bout was resolved pretty quickly and didn't get in the way of his preparation for the upcoming summer tour. There has been no official comment on the health troubles by either Weezy or his reps. However, the rapper's manager Cortez Bryant responded to the fan question of whether Lil' Wayne would still be touring this summer, by saying "of course he is, July!"

More health worries for Weezy after rapper suffers another seizure.
Troubling news for Lil Wayne fans; it’s been revealed that the rapper has once again been hospitalized after suffering seizures.
Some of you may recall that a flight containing the rapper had to be grounded last year after Weezy suffered several seizures. At that instant, the MC was on a plane from Texas to Los Angeles when he began to convulse. This forced the plane to emergency land in Louisiana and the star was taken to a nearby by hospital where he was later released. After that, he admitted that he had been taking anti-seizure drugs. However, in light of this latest news you wonder if a) he’s stopped taking those or b) it’s something far more serious than thought.
Sources have told TMZ that Wayne suffered these new seizures on Tuesday night (March 12, 2013) after shooting a music video in Los Angeles, and was subsequently taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital. Weezy was released several hours later, early on Wednesday morning and is reportedly doing much better now. More details are sketchy as thus far he’s refused to comment on the news. Obviously these are supposed to be busy times for Lil Wayne, with the star having his new album I Am Not A Human Being II out on March 26, 2013, which normally heralds a busy schedule after it. However it would appear his health is of more tantamount importance right now.

Weezy doesn't sound too worked up about Pitbull's words
Rap beef! Well, not really, despite Pitbull’s best efforts. The rapper has been on the offensive towards Lil Wayne on a new track, dissing the rapper after he in turn had taken a pop at NBA team the Miami Heat and its player, including claiming that he’d slept with baller Chris Bosh’s wife.
Quite why Pitbull felt the need to get involved we’re not sure – apart from the fact he’s from Miami – but in a track that appeared on Youtube he decided to stick his oar in anyway. "I'm self-made, I'm self-paid / I grew up with no daddy, I'm from Miami-Dade," raps Pitbull on the chorus of Baauer's viral hit 'Harlem Shakes'.
