Grammy-winning rap star Lil Wayne was rushed to hospital on Sunday after suffering multiple seizures and being found unconscious in his Chicago hotel room. 

Lil Wayne, 34, who has become one of the biggest names in rap music over a two-decade career, suffered a second seizure at the hospital, TMZ reported.

His representative confirmed to the celebrity site that he had suffered multiple seizures.

Doctors advised against the discharge, saying he should be grounded for a few days. Wayne has suffered seizures while flying before, and the doctors felt it was too risky. He very well may still be at the hospital.

On March 14, 2013, TMZ reported that Lil Wayne had been treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on the evening of March 12, after suffering seizures while on a music video set with Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj.

The incident comes more than a year after the rap star, whose Grammy wins include the best rap album award in 2008 for Tha Carter III, was treated after suffering what his representatives called two minor seizures.

Four years ago Lil Wayne, whose given name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr, spent several days at a Los Angeles hospital, after which he told radio station Power 106 he was epileptic and prone to seizures.

Lil Wayne had been set to perform in Las Vegas late on Sunday night. The New Orleans-born rapper began his professional career aged nine, when he became the youngest artist to be signed by Cash Money Records.

Rapper Lil Wayne Stomps On The American Flag [Video]

Now, to be fair I need to show you his article I wrote a while back that seems to show the decent side of this rapper:

Rapper Lil Wayne was in the news a while back for walking all over the American flag while shooting a ‘rap video’ and many Americans were outraged. He said it was ‘unintentional’- I don’t buy that. However, the rap artist recently did something that, on the surface is extraordinarily patriotic.

While seated in his Gulfstream jet preparing for takeoff, a military plane landed and parked next to him. When Lil Wayne saw the men in uniform he told his pilot that he wanted off the plane. What happened next is something you wouldn’t expect in light of the ‘flag incident.

Amanda Cooper Lickliter, an employee at the airport caught it on camera and posted about it on her Facebook page.

So Lil Wayne came through IND today. At the same time he was due to depart, there was a military C130 arriving. It parked next to the Gulfstream he was on, and about 30 men in uniform crossed the ramp into the lobby.

After they walked in front of the G-550, Lil Wayne apparently told his pilots he wanted off. They shut down their engines, and he and his boys got off their plane, came into the lobby, and shook every one of the service men’s hands.

There was no press and no one to show off for… just a seemingly genuine act of respect. I know a lot of controversy surrounds him but, today, I was impressed.

Once inside the airport’s lobby, Wayne shook hands with approximately 30 military men and took pictures with them. Lickliter replied to her friend on Facebook that Wayne and his crew were the nicest people she’s ever met.

I’ve liked him from day one. He can get a little raunchy for me sometimes, but I’m still a fan. He made me smile even before this by treating my line guys with respect…his entire entourage was friendly as hell too. Doesn’t happen often. And then to see his whole crew jump off their plane, just as they were getting ready to taxi away, and come in to make my military men smile…it was great. And here I thought my cookies and the pizzas I ordered for them would be the highlights of their day!

Wow. I don’t get it.

I would say that it was probably a publicity stunt but there was no press.

Now, I hate to be cynical but I can’t help be a tad suspicious given the rapper’s shady past. It’s possible that the pictures could be used at a later time for some type of negative purpose. Or as a joke. I really don’t know.

For a guy to stomp on the American flag one minute, then turn around and shake hands with military heroes the next minute is bizarre.

Anyways, we wish him the best.
