Lil Wayne comes clean about his health

Lil Wayne's health has been in the news a lot as of late. He suffered a seizure that sent him to the hospital March 15, and despite telling fans he was feeling great, he recently announced on the Power 106 radio station that he battles epilepsy.

Wayne told DJ Felli Fel about his condition and that his most recent seizure was not the only one he's had. 

"The bad news is I'm epileptic, so I'm prone to seizures," Wayne explained to the DJ. "This isn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth or seventh seizure. I've had a bunch of seizures. Y'all just never hear about them."

The rapper added his most recent episode was one of his worst, describing how he had not one, but three seizures in a row, which slowed his heart rate down about 30 percent. Wayne also admitted the people closest to him understand his condition and generally know what to do when he has an episode, though the one on March 15 was so bad they had to take him to get help. 

"Certain times I don't even go to the hospital but this time it was real bad because, like I said, it was three in a row. I've never had three back-to-back like that and the third one was so bad," Wayne said in the interview.

His latest confession has some fans concerned for his safety, but Wayne wont let his condition hold him back. He announced he'll be touring this summer to promote his latest album.
