Lil Wayne was reportedly found unconscious in his Chicago hotel room Sunday after suffering a seizure. He was transported to the city's Northwestern Memorial hospital, where he had another minor seizure.
The rapper's representatives confirmed that Lil Wayne was hospitalized again following his continued struggle with epilepsy.

Doctors advised the rapper to stay hospitalized for a few days, especially due to the fact that he is prone to suffering seizures mid-flight. As a result, Lil Wayne's Las Vegas gig at Las Vegas' Drai's Nightclub had to be canceled. 

The nightclub issued a statement on Sunday saying:

"Due to unforeseen circumstances, Lil Wayne will be canceling his previously scheduled performance," 

"Our priority is the health and well-being of our artists. Everyone at Drai's wishes Lil Wayne a speedy recovery during this time."

In June 2016, Wayne's private jet made an emergency landing in Omaha, Nebraska after the rapper had a seizure during a Milwaukee-to-California flight, where he had to spend the night in the hospital. 

"I'm prone to seizures," Wayne said in 2012, after he suffered a seizure aboard another private jet flight, which forced an emergency landing where he was hospitalized in Texas.

"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 them," he said.
