Lil Wayne was admitted to hospital on 3 September after being found unconscious in a Chicago hotel room, according to TMZ.

The Grammy-award winning rapper is said to have suffered a seizure at the hotel, then a second seizure at the hospital.

His representative confirmed to TMZ that the 34-year-old had suffered multiple seizures.

Four years ago Lil Wayne spent several days at a hospital in Los Angeles.

After those seizures the rapper told radio station Power 106 that he was epileptic and prone to having fits.

He told DJ Felli Fel: “This wasn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh…I have had a bunch of seizures, you just never hear about them.”

Lil Wayne says he suffers seizures because of stress, lack of rest and overworking himself.
