Lil Wayne hospitalised after being found unconscious in hotel room

According to emerging reports, rapper, Lil Wayne, is currently being treated in hospital after being found unconscious in a Chicago hotel.

The 34-year-old is understood to have suffered a seizure in his hotel, before suffering a second at the hospital yesterday afternoon.

The Grammy-winner, who lives with epilepsy, has been hospitalised in the past due to his tendency to suffer from seizures.

Speaking in 2013, the rapper explained that his medical history has been checkered with seizures, saying: "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."

Lil Wayne, who is currently on tour with Rae Sremmund, was due to perform in Las Vegas last night.

The star's condition is not currently known.
