Lil Wayne Confirms That He Has Epilepsy, Talks About Near-Death Experience

Posted on Fri Mar 29, 2013 11:40 AM PDT

weezy-seizy-230.jpgLil Wayne is on the mend after suffering several scary seizures earlier this month, and the rapper has now confirmed that he suffers from epilepsy.

"I'm an epileptic, so I'm prone to seizures," Wayne told Los Angeles radio station Power 106 yesterday. "This isn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure. I've had a bunch of seizures. Y'all just never hear about it."

Wayne couldn't comment on reports that he was in a medically induced coma and breathing through tubes, nor did he comment on the claims that his consumption of codeine played any role in the episode. "The reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest and overworking myself," he says. "That's typical me, though."

"It got real bad because I got three [seizures] in a row, and on the third one my heart rate went down to, like, 30 percent," he continued. "Basically, I could've died soon. That's why it was so serious."

The rapper was admitted to the hospital two weeks ago, and just a few hours after being discharged he was back in the intensive care unit following more seizures. On March 16 he was released, and it seems like he's on the road to recovery, as he's set to embark on a national tour to promote his 10th studio album, I Am Not a Human Being II in July.
