Lil Wayne is reportedly recovering from a health scare that resulted from drinking too much codeine-laced cough syrup known as sizzurp, according to Us Weekly.
"Wayne is fine," a source reveals. "He drank too much sizzurp to get a better high."
After drinking too much of the "purple drank," as it's known, the 30-year-old rapper was then rushed to the hospital.
"He needs rehab, but he's not close to death or anything," the source continues. "He's fine and just coming down off the high."
Lil Wayne has made no secret of his love for sizzurp over the years. He released a song in 2008 called "Me and My Drank," in which he rapped about the concoction, "Thinkin' about a certain somebody, that perfect somebody sexy purple body."
Many celebrities recently tweeted their concern for his health, including Fergie, Demi Lovato, and Paris Hilton. Meanwhile, pals such as Drake have been visiting him in the hospital.
We're just relieved that Lil Wayne is feeling better and on the road to recovery.
