Lil Wayne has been hospitalized in critical condition following more seizures, reports TMZ.
30-year-old rapper's condition is so serious that the gossip site
reported that he was being prepared for his last rites. They've since
removed that update, and stress that decisions about his continued care
will be made once his mother arrives at Cedars-Sinai Hospital —
reportedly, she is on a plane en route to Los Angeles.
Lil Wayne's first public bout with seizures came back in October during a flight on his private jet, which had to be grounded so that he could receive assistance. On Tuesday following a video shoot,

We will update as soon as we hear anything more.
It's worth noting that Wayne's camp have been telling a different story. Young Money rapper Mack Maine went straight to Twitter
to let followers know, "Wayne is alive and well! We watching the
Syracuse game...thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you
all soon." And then,
"We will be releasing an official statement shortly but dont believe
the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe...that's false!!"
