(AllHipHop News) TMZ is reporting that YMCMB rapper Lil Wayne is in critical condition after being rushed to L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai Hospital. Wayne apparently suffered another seizure and has been placed in an induced coma.
Currently in the ICU unit, Wayne is said to be “unstable” and breathing through tubes. Several love ones are at his bedside.
TMZ sources say doctors found high amounts of codeine in his system, and had to pump his stomach three times.
Apparently, Wayne went on a codeine binge after being released from the hospital on Wednesday where he was admitted for prior seizures.
