As HipHollywood reported to you yesterday, Lil Wayne was finally released from a Los Angeles hospital, where he had been kept for nearly a week due to seizure related complications.
During his hospitalization, reports of Weezy’s condition had been grossly exaggerated by multiple media outlets, with some even putting the rapper on his death bed! To set the record straight, Wayne’s “father,” and Cash Money founder, Birdman (aka Baby), called into NYC radio station Hot 97 and spoke with radio personality, Angie Martinez.
Among the things he wanted to clear up were, the extent of Weezy’s illness, and the fact that, contrary to some reports, Wayne’s hospitalization was NOT drug (or
sizzurp syrup) related.
After explaining that Weezy was doing “real good,” Birdman explained what prompted this latest seizure:
“I mean, it’s work ethics. What he puts in and what he believes in, and how hard he works…How much dedication he puts in to his music and his fans…It ain’t have nothing to do with drugs – no such thing…It’s just that he works! He’s a hard worker.”
When asked about the extent of Weezy’s condition, Birdman shot down the near-death rumors:
“He never was about to die…it was never nothing like that… [TMZ] freaked the world with that.”
Birdman went on to say that Wayne has been ordered to get “rest and relaxation,” and that he would be provided with “round the clock care” to make sure he followed instructions.
