For the first time since his widely publicized “near-death” hospitalization a few weeks ago, YMCMB bossman Lil Wayne has spoken out about his health and what caused he seizures.
DJ Felli Fel of Power 106 Radio in L.A. recently caught up with the Young Money rapper for a phone interview, during which Weezy revealed that his seizures were nothing new.
“The bad news is I’m an epileptic. I’m prone to seizures. This isn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure. I’ve had a bunch of seizures, ya’ll just never hear about them.
But this time it got real bad ’cause I had three of them in a row and on the third one, my heart rate went down to like 30 percent. Basically, I could’ve died, so that is why it was so serious….
But the reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest, overworking myself. That’s just typical me though.”
Wayne also spoke in detail about his camp being aware of his condition:
“I have people around me. I actually have them so much they already know what to do. They already know how to handle it. Certain times I don’t even go to the hospital, but this time, it was real bad because it was three in a row, and I’ve never had three back to back like that.
The third one was so bad and I live in the hills in L.A. So the reason why it was bad was that I live all the way at the top, so you know how hard it is getting down those hills. That was what was so scary about it.”
So, according to Weezy, him getting slizzard on syrup like it’s water has nothing to do with these seizures…or maybe he just decided to leave that part out. But surely hearty doses of codeine don’t help.
