Lil Wayne Hospitalized in Chicago After Seizure
Lil Wayne was reportedly hospitalized Sunday in Chicago after experiencing a seizure, TMZ reports. He was allegedly found unconscious in his hotel room and taken to Northwestern Memorial.
Doctors have reportedly advised against his release. He’s scheduled to perform tonight at Drai’s Las Vegas, but it’s unclear if he will move forward with that appearance. Pitchfork has reached out for comment. Last year, Lil Wayne suffered a seizure during a flight, forcing the plane’s crew to make an emergency landing in Nebraska. At the time, he was also scheduled to perform in Las Vegas.
In 2012, Lil Wayne was en route to Los Angeles when he suffered a seizure and had to make an emergency landing in Texas. The following year, he was hospitalized for multiple seizures, and spent almost a week in a Los Angeles hospital.
