Back in 2013, Lil Wayne was reported to be near death following an overdose on sizzurp.
To this day, some claim that Wayne was declared dead before being resuscitated by doctors.
Several media outlets report that the the rapper received his last rites, a sacrament for Catholics who are believed to be on the verge of passing away.
We may never know the truth about how close the hip hop icon came to taking his last breath, but it's clear that the codeine-laced cough syrup concoction took a serious toll on him.
You'd think Weezy would leave the lean alone after his brush with death, but sources say he was back to sipping his favorite party beverage not long after he was released from the hospital.
And now it seems his habit has once again brought Wayne to the brink of death.
According to TMZ, Wayne was hospitalized in Omaha, Nebraska earlier this week after he suffered a midair seizure on his private jet, forcing pilots to make an emergency landing.
Now, several sources are telling the site that the notoriously hard-partying emcee ingested a dangerous amount of sizzurp in the hours leading up to his seizure.
The day of the incident, Weezy flew to Milwaukee for a performance, and he reportedly brought five 16-ounce bottles of the codeine and promethazine-based syrup for the trip.
One insider claims to have witnessed the rapper consuming at least three full bottles by himself during the after-party.
Just hours later, Wayne was rushed to the hospital.
Sources say the scene served as a painful reminder of the death of Prince, who was also recently hospitalized after suffering a drug overdose on his private plane.
The music legend passed away just a few days later.
Hopefully, those closest to Lil Wayne will convince to get whatever help he needs in order to avoid a similar fate.
