As Lil Wayne remains hospitalized following a bout of serious seizures, a growing list of big-name celebrities have queued up to deliver their get well wishes in person.
Us Weekly and TMZ confirm that the latest A-lister to drop in on the rapper is Nicki Minaj, who visited yesterday (March 16). The two singers have been friends for years — since Lil Wayne signed Nicki to his label, Young Money, back in 2007. This past week has been a nerve-wracking one for friends, family, and fans of the “Got Money” rapper. The singer was first hospitalized on Tuesday after experiencing seizures, but was released the next day, apparently recovered. Just hours following his release, Lil Wayne suffered another seizure from which he did not stabilize, and was again rushed to the hospital, where he has since remained.
Initially, the cause of the seizures was unknown, but as of yesterday, it looks like we have some answers. Chances are the tatted rapper took one too many sips of his favorite poison: a potent codeine-laced cough syrup called "sizzurp," to which Lil Wayne has paid many an ode in his music.
Other celebrities who have been spotted checking in on Weezy these past few days include Drake, Birdman, and L.A Clippers star Chris Paul. We expect the list to grow, but hope it doesn't have time to grow too much more — we want Lil Wayne back in good health!
