On The Show With Vinny where Lil Wayne revealed he’s engaged, he gave the story behind his favorite tattoo, which means a lot since he’s covered in ink. His very favorite one is located on his right forearm and says “In memory of Rabbit, it’s up to me.” It’s pretty hard to see, but here’s [...]
Lil Wayne announced he’s engaged on The Show With Vinny Thursday night. When Vinny asked Lil Wayne if he’s ever had Italian food before, he replied “My fiance’s Italian.” Say What?
Lil Wayne may be known for being a lil’ out of control, but he kept things respectful while filming a steamy music video for Nicki Minaj’s “High School” (below.)
Much has been speculated about what landed Lil Wayne in the hospital earlier this month, and for the first time, Lil Wayne is speaking out publicly about the condition that caused his latest health crisis.
Lil Wayne, whose album “I Am Not a Human Being” was released today, opened up on Power 106 FM in Los Angeles Thursday night, saying a seizure landed him in the hospital during his latest stay there. “This isn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure. I’ve had a bunch of seizures, ya’ll just never hear about them,” the rapper admitted. “But this time it got real bad ’cause I had three of them in a row and on the third one, my heart rate went down to like 30 percent,” adding, “Basically, I could’ve died, so that is why it was so serious.”
Lil Wayne had a health scare last week after suffering a seizure on the set of a Nicki Minaj video. TMZ claimed that the rapper was in critical condition after sippin’ on too much sizzurp, but his friends and family said he was always okay. All that matters now is that he has recovered, and he’s excited to get back to business.
Lil Wayne spent the majority of the last week in the Intensive Care Unit at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, with TMZ reporting he was near death. Thankfully, Lil Wayne is recovering, and has been released.
Rapper Lil Wayne has reportedly been placed in an induced coma after he was found unconscious by his bodyguard. There are reportedly friend and family at his bedside in an extremely emotional scene. His mother is reportedly on a plane to Los Angeles and “all major decisions about Wayne’s health (including the decision to discontinue life support) will not be made until she arrives.”
UPDATE - Members of Lil Wayne’s YMCMB team (and apparently Lil Wayne himself!) are denying the TMZ reports, including TMZ’s earlier claim (since removed) that Lil Wayne was preparing to receive his last rites.
Lil Wayne had to make an emergency landing in his private jet yesterday after experiencing seizure-like symptoms. The rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., was taken to a local hospital in Texas as soon as his plane touched down where he was treated and later released.
Lil Wayne took it upon himself to post up a near half-hour long self described, “Weezy F Baby Public Service Announcement.” There’s a lot of reflection and news and opinions crammed into Weezy’s sermon from the couch. It’s really interesting and entertaining, just like Dwayne Carter.
