Hollywood News: Rapper Lil Wayne Found Dead Swirling In Internet

Reblogged from

Earlier this year, Lil Wayne was reportedly on the brink of his death due to continuous seizure. Other sources claimed the rapper had a drug overdose, but he stressed epilepsy was the main reason of his near-death experience. "The thing is, man, the bad news is, I'm an epileptic, so I'm prone to seizures," Wayne said in a radio interview via TMZ. "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. This time it got real bad because I got three of 'em in a row, and on the third one, my heart rate went down to, like, 30 percent." "Basically, I could've died soon. That's why it was so serious. The reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest and overworking myself. That's typical me, though," he added.

Today we got a slightly closer look into his dramatic legal feud with his former (and/or current) label Cash Money Records, and while the music has definitely taken a back seat over the last few months, we now finally have at least one new track to pore over. Billboard pointed out earlier today that DJ Raj Smoove has shared a Weezy track from his upcoming mixtape, The Greatest DJ In The World. We don't have much info on the song, but it's pretty obvious...

So this was supposed to be a feature about the kicks that are in the newly released Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 video game. Despite the game getting horrible reviews, it was still worthwhile to me to check out the various brands like Nike SB, Vans and DC Shoes that were on the feet of skaters like Ishod Wair, Lizzie Armanto and Chris Cole. That is, until I saw Lil’ Wayne up in the air and hit the pavement.


That’s right, a cel-shaded Lil Tunechi is in the game. For years, Wayne has shown an affinity for skateboarding, even if...
