Lil Wayne Has Epilepsy, Says He “Could’ve Died”


(AllHipHop News) Lil Wayne has confessed to the reason he’s had so many seizures. The rapper says he’s an epileptic.

On Thursday, Wayne conducted an interview with Power 106 in Los Angeles and admitted that he’s suffered with the ailment for years, including a recent scare he says he “could’ve died.”

In the interview, the rappers says that he’s simply overworking himself and exacerbating the condotion, which he’s suffered from for years.

I Am Not a Human Being II was released this week and the New Orleans native will start touring in July with Future and T.I.

The epilepsy revelation refutes the assertion from many that the seizures were brought on by codeine or “sizzurp.”

      Yeah from what i remember from what the neurologist told me is that the main threat is starting to shake standing up and falling and busting your head open. I remember being told that swallowing your tongue is a urban myth and its not possible to “swallow” or choke on your tongue. Like when the er medics/firemen show up they dont put spoons in your mouth or anything, they just try to hold you down so you dont hurt yourself. Its mental tho, had two fire trucks in front of my house the last seizure bout i had included 9 or so people having to hold me down. I”d bet Ross has some form of epilepsy too cause having multiple seizures on the same day is real abnormal. But you can go into seizure from Overdose too.

  • hoeyuno

    I know a chick with that. And when shes partying too much the seizures come back like crazy. Weezy was probably born with it

    • RAP Music

      either way he has it for life. Hope the dude does the right thing and gets treatment and on anti-seizure meds.

  • So TMZ wasn’t that far off after all.

  • StackzScrilla

    I hope you get some rest patna…… We all know Birdman be pimpin’ them hoes hard……

    I’m a epileptic forreal. I hope this aint a PR stunt just to sell records.

    Once you have epilepsy you cant be doing shit like cough syrup. If hes known hes had this for years he really is a stupid ass or a horrible addict or both. Romia it most undoubtably did, specially if this is a pre-existing condition he prolly has been on meds for yet he has multiple seizures in a short period, well its cause of shit hes doing or maybe not doing (taking meds). The meds are ridiculous and if he aint done drinking yet these meds pretty much stop all drinking unless you want to vomit your brains out each night.

  • RAP Music

    All that being said i hope Wayne gets time off and really gets his condition under control. I have partial epilepsy and its a pain so i feel for what hes going through, scary and random.

    • Pedro Matos Jr.

      Time off they already said he’s goin on tour wit T.I. & Future he ain’t gon learn!

    “Epilepsy is a common and diverse set of chronic neurological disorders characterized by seizures.[ Some definitions of epilepsy require that seizures be recurrent and unprovoked, but others require only a single seizure combined with brain alterations which increase the chance of future seizures.
    In many cases a cause cannot be identified; however, factors that are
    associated include brain trauma, strokes, brain cancer, and drug and
    alcohol misuse among others”

    Anybody see the million dollar statement?

    Little Wayne’s quote “I almost died” from the sound of it sounds like he is scared to die. I would also be scared that if I sold my soul to the devil to get the frame and fortune for this minute. Of time on earth. Life on earth is like a grain of sand compared to an eternity in which he will burn in hell for selling his soul. As a Christian I’m not supposed to judge and can’t say who will burn in hell but it is my opinion and that being a Christian know that when you say things like, if it wasn’t for Satan I would not be where I am at today. Sounds like he worship Satan. I would much rather spend eternity in heaven. Dumb n#er, may GOD have mercy on his pathetic worthless life. Its not cool to rap about selling drugs and murdering ppl. Come one ppl, Stop worshiping this pathetic soul. It’s not worth it
