Lil Wayne is reportedly in critical condition after suffering more seizures. The rapper was rushed to the ICU at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.
The rapper was hospitalized Tuesday night after suffering multiple seizures, but was released Wednesday after he stabilized. Today, he did not stabilize.
Wayne was rushed to the hospital again, and placed in restraints in the ICU because he was shaking uncontrollably. He was then placed in an induced coma.
Earlier this afternoon, he was breathing through tubes.
Several people are at Wayne's bedside, both rap artists and family members. There's evidence that he went on a sizzurp binge after his release Wednesday.
Doctors found high amounts of codeine in the 30-year-old's system. Wanye's stomach was pumped three times to flush the drugs from his system.
This took place earlier this afternoon, Pacific Time.
According to TMZ, Lil Wayne's mother is currently on a plane flying to Los Angeles, and no major medical decisions will be made until she arrives.
