A new report alleges that Lil Wayne’s seizures and subsequent brush with death were caused by a toxic mixture of drugs and chemicals. Keep reading for all the details.
Lil Wayne’s Seizure: Caused By A Disastrous Drink?
Was Lil Wayne’s life saved in the nick of time by fast-thinking doctors who pumped his stomach and purged it of a potent, toxic concoction?
That’s what a new report from Media Takeout alleges. A source claims Lil Wayne drank a “bootleg” syrup that was given to him by a friend. The concoction was reportedly a mix of promethazine and codeine, both of which are strong pain medications. But that’s not all — the drink also contained a number of other prescription drugs, and doctors allegedly also found traces of anti-freeze in Weezy’s system.
The drug-heavy syrup was highly potent and toxic — if this report is true, Lil Wayne is lucky to be alive.

The “bootleg” is just another, stronger form of purple drink, or sizzurp, which has allegedly become a part of Lil Wayne’s persona at this point. In the past when he faced questions about his drug use, Wayne said, “I’m gonna do what I want… I don’t care if it was heroin in my cup. It’s my cup, f**k you.”
And less than six months ago, Lil Wayne was admitted to a hospital after experiencing “seizure-like symptoms.”
Lil Wayne: ‘Doing Well’ & ‘Recovering’
A day after nearly dying, Lil Wayne’s publicists have assured his fans that he is doing okay and is in stable condition. Young Money Entertainment’s rep stated that Weezy did suffer another seizure, but that he “is recovering.” Wayne’s personal publicist, Kia Selby, fiercely denied rumors that he had gone into a coma and asserted that he “is doing well.”
But he can’t keep living this way. Weezy has had several opportunities to change his lifestyle — perhaps this recent life-threatening episode will make him change his ways.
