One week after TMZ reported he was on his deathbed following an alleged overdose of cough syrup, Lil Wayne shot a vlog where he promised he was “more than good,” thanked his fans for their love and support, and announced that he would be going on tour with T.I. in July.
It was a big relief to see Tunechi in good spirits after his recent health scare. Whatever actually caused his seizures—whether sizzurp, as TMZ reported, or hard work, as Birdman and Mack Maine maintained—Lil Wayne's faithful followers heaved a big sigh of relief. But Weezy's not the only rapper to have his fans worried sick in recent months. Rick Ross has also suffered multiple seizures (not to mention a drive-by shooting) in the past two years. But hey—shit happens. And it's not what happens to you that counts, it's how you repond to it.
As happy as we are to see Wayne feeling better, we certainly hope he’s going to be making some lifestyle changes, and staying the fuck away from lean. Rappers always seem to be having these brushes with death—whether from gun violence, car accidents, or overdoses—so we thought it would be a good idea to take a look back at how 21 Rappers Responded To Near-Death Experiences. Tunechi, take notes!
