Following Lil Wayne’s recent hospitalization in Chicago for seizures, Weezy’s manager Cortez Bryant says Wayne won’t be slowing down anytime soon.
“He a workaholic,” Bryant told TMZ at the Los Angeles International Airport. “That’s what got him to where his is now, man. He’s in the studio all the time trying to make music … He’s epileptic — that’s the reality of it. So it’s something we know we’ll have to deal with the rest of his life, and we just make sure he’s popping meds and try to force him to get some rest.”
“It’s not going to hinder us or stop us,” he adds. “We aren’t going to let the disease stop us.”
When asked if his seizures were linked to the use of codeine or any other drugs, he said, “It has nothing to do with any of those other things. He’s an epileptic. It’s a disease he has to deal with … This might not be the last time you see Lil Wayne having a seizure.”
Wayne was reportedly released from the hospital on Wednesday (September 6) and his daughter Reginae Carter confirmed he was “doing fine” via Twitter.
Doctors reportedly told Wayne to take it easy for a while.
