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.

Lil Wayne Quotes

Lil Wayne: I don't do too many [drugs]. I just smoke weed and drink. But I'll never fuck with no more coke. It's not about the bad high; it's just about the acne: Cocaine makes your face break out. I'm a pretty boy.

The world is about to end in 2012… ’cause the Mayans made calendars, and they stop at 2012. I got encyclopedias on the bus. The world is about to end as we know it. You can see it already. A planet doesn't exist - there's no more Pluto. Planes are flying into buildings - and not just the Twin Towers. Mosquitos bite you and you die. And a black man and a woman are running for president.
