Medical Condition: Epilepsy
After Lil Wayne was admitted to the hospital in critical condition on March 13, 2013 for suffering three seizures in a row, the media speculated that the cause of his health scare was his constant consumption of cough syrup a.k.a. purple drank or sizzurp. While he is known to use the drug, the chart-topping rapper revealed in a Power 106 radio interview that he suffers from epilepsy, and that he’s had “a bunch of seizures” that the public never hears about.
