Ronald Martinez/Getty Images/AFP/FileUS rapper Lil Wayne sits courtside during the NBA Finals match between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Miami Heat at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, on June 12, 2012. The Grammy-winning rapper has tweeted he is “good,” as record company executives…
Lil Wayne was in fact hospitalized, but according to his camp and his official Twitter account — he’s OK. (See below) Earlier in the day TMZ reported that the ‘Young Money’ artist was near death – thank goodness they were wrong.
According to TMZ, Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. aka Lil Wayne, 30, was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital again today for the seizures, however, this time he did not stabilize. He was rushed into ICU, where he was placed in restraints because he was shaking uncontrollably.
According to the media outlet, Lil Wayne had been placed in an induced coma. He is currently breathing through tubes. (or so they day)
The scene in Lil Wayne’s room is reportedly a grim one, with several people crying at his bedside.
Rapper Mack Maine tweeted a little while ago that Wayne was “alive and well. We watching the Syracuse (basketball) game…thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you all soon.”
“We will be releasing an official statement shortly but dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe…that’s false!!”
Sarah Cunningham, a publicist with the Young Money record label, acknowledged that Lil Wayne had a seizure.
The public relations department at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the Los Angeles hospital where the rapper is reportedly being treated, did not confirm or deny that Lil Wayne is there, per its policy.
The rapper’s mother is reportedly flying to Los Angeles, and all major decisions on his health, including the decision to stop life support, will be made once she arrives. (we know now there was NO truth to TMZ story)
Thank goodness Weezy is all good!
Recent Lil Wayne buzz:
According to TMZ, Lil Wayne was hospitalized for seizures once again in Los Angeles. The rapper was taken to Cedars-Sinai on Tuesday night after recording a music video and then released Wednesday morning.
The 30-year-old is said to be doing much better, according to the outlet.
On Oct. 25, his private plane had to make an emergency landing because he allegedly suffered a seizure-like attack while en route, according to a separate TMZ report. The rapper’s rep claimed he just had a migraine and was dehydrated.
At the time, Hollywood Life obtained the following statement from Lil Wayne’s rep:
“Lil Wayne was successfully released from the hospital after being treated for a severe migraine and dehydration. He is at home on doctor mandated rest and will return to work soon. He appreciates all of his fans for their support and love.”
Commemorating the NBA All-Star Weekend festivities rapper Lil Wayne took some time to come clean on a couple indiscretions and the exact reason he was allegedly banned from all NBA events at the request of the Miami Heat.
Well the hip hop star explains it all live on stage in Houston on Sunday night at the Beats By Dre after party. Weezy let it be known that he was not pleased with the Heat organization:
“When I say f-ck you say NBA.. When I say f-ck you say the Miami Heat.”
“You let them ni–as know I’m from the streets so this ain’t no Twitter beefin or no online beef, just take it to the motherf–king streets, ni–a. F–k all them ni–as. F–k LeBron, f–k She-Wade, f–k Chris Bosh, f–k all them ni–as, man. And, and, and, I f–ked Chris Bosh wife,” Wayne said.

Rapper/Entrepreneur Lil Wayne tops our list of celebrity pics for the week. The Cash Money member has cut off his signature dreads and we like it…we like it! Wayne and Big Boi (see in pic below) are in New Orleans partaking in the Super Bowl festivities. What do you think of the Young Money founders new look? Is it a hit or a miss? Should he grow them back? Leave your thoughts in comment section below.
Multi-platinum rapper Lil Wayne shared with his fans a brand spanking new tattoo today (Jan 2nd) — the word ‘Baked’ on his forehead. The new tattoo joins countless others and most definitely has a meaning behind it –we just have no clue at the moment what the newest tattoo signifies. BAKED is done in block letters that look strikingly similar to the logo used by Baker, a manufacturer of popular skate decks. Maybe that’s our hint.
When asked about his newest addition Weezy said:
“New year, new face tattoo.”
What are your thoughts? Does Weezy’s tattoo have a greater meaning? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
In a recent interview with MTV, superstar Lil Wayne revealed that he plans to retire after the release of his album “Tha Carter V.” The hip hop icon has been on the rap scene since he was eight years old .
2012 Grammy nominations: Adele, Kanye West, Bruno Mars, Foo Fighters lead the musical pack.
Kanye West earned the most nominations for this year’s Grammys (a whopping 7).
But in the categories that count — Album, Song and Record of the Year — it’s two other stars who have a chance to sweep.
To the surprise of no one, the year’s biggest selling artist, Adele, bagged nods in all the top slots: Song and Record for her smash “Rolling In The Deep,” and Album for her second CD, “21.”
The British singer earned six nods in all.
She’ll go head to head with a less obvious, or favored, candidate: Bruno Mars, who tied her tally with six bids, including the Record and Song slots for “Grenade,” and Album for his debut, “Doo-Wops and Hooligans.”
Both stars represent a resurgence of pure singing chops in an age of theatrics and gimmickry.
The Foo Fighters — seen by many as the last popular gasp for respected rock — also got six nods (though just one in a top category: Album of the Year).
Rapper Lil Wayne and the dance music producer Skrillex, each got five, all in lesser genre slots. Similarly, West’s large tally includes just one in a major category: Song of the Year for “All Of The Lights,” from his album “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.”
Lady Gaga, a star expected to have as high a profile as Adele, only has one chance to compete in a pivotal slot: Album for “Born This Way.”
Other artists vying for the most prized awards include the neo-folk act Mumford & Songs, whose “The Cave” is up for Record and Song of the year, Katy Perry, with a bid in the Record slot for “Firework,” Rihanna, who’s in Album contention for “Loud,” and this year’s left-field choice, Bon Iver, nominated for both Record and Song with “Holocene.”
Bon Iver, this year’s token hipster group, also has a shot as Best New Artist (though it’s for their second CD). In that lusted-after category, they’ll square off against country’s The Band Perry, dance king Skrillex, rapper-singer J. Cole and the odds-on favorite to win — sight gag and New Yorker Nicki Minaj. The most glaring oversight in this category was breakout alterna-band Foster The People.
This year’s Grammys has earned considerable controversy for hacking down its list of over 100 categories to feature just 78, at the expense of many Latin artists.
An on-going protest about that will surely continue when the awards are handed out, Feb. 12, 2012 on CBS.
Lil Wayne is recovering after gashing his head at a St. Louis-area skateboard park. The 28-year-old rapper aka Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. was in suburban St. Louis Sunday for a performance at the outdoor Verizon Amphitheatre. KTVI-TV reported that Lil Wayne, accompanied by a large entourage, showed up Sunday at DePaul Health Center’s emergency room.
Lil Wayne went to twitter to assure fans he was good to go –
“The Lou was good but I busted my … head at the sk8park! 9stitches! Gnarly gash over my left eye! Luv the people,” he wrote.

Three big artists are ready to get the party started at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, August 28, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Adele, Lil Wayne and Chris Brown have all been announced as performers at the show, airing live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles next month.
This will mark the first time that Adele has graced the VMAs stage. The British chanteuse is up for seven nods for her emotional “Rolling in the Deep” video, including Best Female Artist, Best Pop Video, Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Direction, Best Editing and the night’s big prize, Video of the Year.
Brown will return to the stage, after making his unforgettable VMA debut back in 2007. His eye-popping video for “Look at Me Now,” which features Wayne and Busta Rhymes, is up for multiple Moonmen at the big show, including Best Hip-Hop Video and Best Collaboration.
“I am excited about my nominations and to be back on the VMA stage,” Brown said in a statement. “I have a special performance planned for my wonderful fans.”
Wayne himself is also slated to take the stage. He’s got some big nominations up for grabs at the show including best Hip-Hop Video for his “6 Foot, 7 Foot” clip.
“Being a nominee and performer on the VMAs once again is an honor because everyone doesn’t get that opportunity,” Wayne said in a statement. The event coincides with the August 29 release of his upcoming album. “Looking forward to performing on the show, and having Tha Carter IV drop the same week!”
The night is shaping up to be quite the gathering, with stars like Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West and Pitbull up for Moonmen at the show. Perry leads the pack with an unprecedented four videos earning a total of nine nominations, including Video of the Year, Best Female Video and Best Pop Video.

The upcoming 2011 BET Awards Los Angeles is packed with of star power as the cable network recognizes entertainers who impacted the African-American audience. Marked last year with big moments, such as an emotional Chris Brown crying during a Michael Jackson tribute, many fans are wondering how this year’s big moments will unfold. Hosted by comedian Kevin Hart, the awards ceremony will focus on the music industry’s movers and shakers along with giving nods to top Hollywood actors and sports figures.
This year’s slated performers include big name heavy-hitters with R&B and Hip Hop staple Mary J. Blige carrying the torch and leading the way for a talented array of fellow veteran singers such as Best Female artist nominee Beyoncé, Alicia Keys and Jill Scott.
Could there be a reunion between the Texas gal pals Kelly Rowland and Beyoncé? Will Mary J defer to the younger generation of stars or will the queen of Hip Hop and R&B show the ladies how it’s done? Will Beyoncé pull out all the stops as she preps to drop her latest album 4?
Nominated for Best Male R&B Artist awards, heartthrobs Chris Brown and Trey Songz will undoubtedly turn on the charm for the ladies. Will Chris Brown keep his shirt on for the studio audience or will he try to rev up his sex symbol status? Will Trey Songz seduce the audience with a soulful ballad or will he excite the crowd? Will Rihanna be in attendance to witness her former beau in action?
