In breaking news, for the second time this week, Lil Wayne was rushed to the hospital after suffering seizures. The Cash Money Records superstar is reportedly in critical condition at the Los Angeles, California Cedar-Sinai Medical Center’s Intensive Care Unit, according to TMZ.com. In an updated report, the site claims Wayne is being prepared for last rights, as his family is currently traveling.
TMZ gathered reports that a “high amount of codeine” was discovered in Lil Wayne’s system, requiring his stomach to be flushed multiple times. Reports add that Wayne is presently in a coma, and at times, shaking uncontrollably, and “breathing through tubes.”
TMZ also has exclusive photographs of the entourage of vehicles outside Cedar-Sinai.
Reports earlier this week indicated that Lil Wayne, who is currently 30 years old, was suffering from dehydration, causing him to suffer seizure-like symptoms.
UPDATE: Just over an hour after the original report from TMZ.com broke, Lil Wayne revealed that he’s recovering and “good.” The rapper took to Twitter for his first tweet in days to refute reports that his life was in danger.
I’m good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.

This tweet happened moments after Wayne’s inner-circle of Birdman and Mack Maine denied the original reports, with the latter calling the breathing tubes and choma information “false.”
