Lil Wayne blames seizures on stress

New Orleans rapper Lil Wayne has blamed his recent seizures on stress, lack of rest and overworking himself. The 30 year old recently collapsed on the set of Nicki Minaj’s video shoot for a new single ‘High School’ and was rushed to intensive care at a nearby hospital.

But the rapper says that seizures are a part of his everyday life and that generally his fans don’t get to hear about them.

‘This wasn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh…I have had a bunch of seizures,’ he told US radio station Power 106.

The public only heard about this seizure because he had three in a row and then his heart rate dropped dramatically, he explained.

‘Certain times I don’t even go to the hospital,’ said Lil Wayne, ‘but this time it was real bad because it was three in a row. Basically I could have died.’
