There have been conflicting reports surrounding Lil Wayne’s health condition, since he was hospitalized last week. While TMZ claims the hip-hop star is in the ICU, still in bad shape, Weezy’s YMCMB family argues otherwise.
Cash Money Records founder, Birdman, called into Angie Martinez’s Hot 97 radio show on Monday (March 18), saying his flagship artist is feeling much better, despite reports… and tells a different story.
Birdman says Wayne has been in the hospital since Tuesday (March 12) after suffering a single seizure (TMZ reports multiple seizures).
“All the stuff people is saying, there’s no truth to it at all,” said Birdman. “He’s doing much, much better and he’s in good shape right now.”
The rap mogul also refuted reports that the seizures were triggered by a sizzurp binge. Instead, he blames the health situation on Wayne’s work ethic and dedication to music. “It had nothing to do with drugs, no such thing like that. He work ’round the clock. He’s just a hard grinder for this music. It wasn’t nothing about no drugs,” Birdman said.
As far as his current condition, he says doctors have told Weezy to take it easy. “He just needed to get some rest, relax. Take it one day at a time. He’ll be back to normal as anybody else.
“He never was in that kind of situation throughout the whole few days we’ve been in the hospital. He never been about to die or nothing like that.”
Birdman said Wayne is expected to be discharged as soon as Tuesday (March 19). Stay tuned…
TMZ has just reported that the rapper has been moved out of the Intensive Care Cnit at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles after doctors determined his condition has stabilized. They also say he has been walking around the hospital floor on his own… accompanied by a team of bodyguards.
