Rapper Lil Wayne was hospitalized Friday after suffering a second seizure. He is already getting well wishes from fans and his colleagues.
“I talked to him last night before ya'll heard about anything, so he's straight,” friend 2 Chainz told MTV News while in Philadelphia. “Young money for life--you dig? Get well soon homie. Hit me up,” he added, talking directly to his fellow rapper.
Meek Mill added that he hadn’t seen Lil Wayne yet, but hopes to soon.
“I didn't get a chance to check in with Lil Wayne, you know he has probably a million people checking in with him at the same time,” he said. “When I see him I'll make sure he's good. Wayne, thats the homie.”
Lil Wayne’s health scare happened Friday, when he reportedly suffered two seizures in less than 24 hours.
TMZ reported that he suffered the second seizure while on a flight from Texas to Los Angeles. The flight landed in Louisiana so Lil Wayne could receive treatment at a hospital. A rep told TMZ that Wayne was just recovering from migraines at home, but TMZ insisted otherwise.
His management did send a statement to The AP stating that the rapper was suffering from severe dehydration and migraines and was on “mandated rest.” He was released from the hospital and will be back soon.
The statement gave no further details.
Wayne tweeted, “Thanx for all the prayers! I am good.”
Thanx for all the prayers!I am good.
