UPDATE: Lil Wayne has tweeted that he "good" despite reports that he was on his last rites after suffering from seizures.
I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.— Lil Wayne WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) March 16, 2013
Earlier tonight, TMZ reported that rapper Lil Wayne was in critical condition in the ICU after suffering from seizures. He was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in L.A. Tuesday night after suffering multiple seizures. He was released Wednesday but just hours later one of his bodyguards found him in his room, on the floor and unconscious and he was rushed back to the hospital. It was reported that he was "unstable" and placed in a medically-induced coma. The 30-year-old (real name Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr.) had his stomach pumped three times after "doctors found high amounts of codeine in his system."
However, Mack Maine, president of Young Money, tweeted that Lil Wayne is "alive and well" despite the reports that he is on his last rites:
Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game...thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you all soon. #love— Mack Maine (@mackmaine) March 16, 2013
We will be releasing an official statement shortly but dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe...that's false!!— Mack Maine (@mackmaine) March 16, 2013
Birdman, a part of Cash Money Records, also tweeted that Lil Wayne was doing better:
My son is in good spirit..feelin much betta...be home soon.YMCMB— BIRDMAN (@BIRDMAN5STAR) March 16, 2013
Maine also called out TMZ for their report (Warning: graphic language):
