Rapper Lil Wayne is dying after being hospitalized for an overdose of his favorite drug, sizzurp. If you’ll recall, Wayne was hospitalized earlier this week after suffering from seizures. After he was released, just hours later, he was taken back to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A.
Wayne was rushed to the hospital again, but this time he did not stabilize. He was taken to ICU, where he was placed in restraints because he was shaking uncontrollably.
We’re told Wayne is currently “unstable,” and has been placed in an induced coma. He is breathing through tubes.
We’re told several people are at Wayne’s bedside crying, and a number of rap artists and family members are on the way. Sources say the scene is violent as Wayne shakes uncontrollably.
Sources say there’s evidence Wayne went on a Sizzurp binge after being released Wednesday, because doctors found high amounts of codeine in his system.
We’re told Wayne’s stomach was pumped 3 times to flush the drugs from his system.
It’s also being reported that Wayne’s family is there and he has been read his last rites. Stay tuned for the latest updates on this story as they unfold.
