“No warning, no nothing I don’t feel sick. I get headaches real bad. And the headaches? I didn’t get no headaches or nothing,” Lil Wayne told MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway when he appeared on a special episode of “RapFix Live” on Wednesday (May 8).
Wayne says he has no recollection of the attacks and if it wasn’t for his family, friends and doctors, he wouldn’t even know the details of his frightful episodes. “I told them the other day, ‘Y’all can tell me right now that y’all was lying’, like ‘You know what? We lyin’ ain’t nothin,’ and I’d have to believe them because I don’t know,” he said. “I go to sleep and wake up in the hospital. I don’t feel anything. I’m 100, I just hope it stops happening.”
In March, Wayne landed in the hospital for nearly a week after suffering from three seizures in a row. It wasn’t the first time, nor the last. On April 30, the 30-year old lyrical wiz was taken to Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles and then was released the next day . “The thing is, man, the bad news is I’m an epileptic, so I’m prone to seizures,” Wayne told Los Angeles’ Power 106 DJ Felli Fel during an interview in March. “This isn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure. I’ve had a bunch of seizures; y’all just never hear about it.
While Weezy is still learning to cope with his condition, he hasn’t let it halt his grind. On Friday, he celebrated the release of his new Spectre by SUPRA sneaker line with a party in Miami, and Wednesday, he appeared vibrant and upbeat on the “RapFix Live” location on Star Island. He said he’s trying to follow doctor’s orders. “He didn’t tell me to do too much that a human doesn’t do anyway. Sleep and eat right, that’s about it,” he said.
