Lil Wayne is currently in ICU in critical condition after suffering yet another seizure, and we’re told it does not look good…TMZ has learned. We broke the story…the 30 year old rapper was rushed to Cedars Sinai Hospital in LA Tuesday night after suffering multiple seizures.

Y’all please pray for Wayne! I hope this is not the case.
Sources further allege that Lil Wayne may have gone on a Sizzurp binge after being released from the hospital on Mar. 13, as doctors have reportedly found high amounts of codeine in his system. It’s reported that his stomach was pumped three times to remove the drugs from his system.
Well it looks as if this may be another false alarm for Wayne…but it is indeed a wake up call to get clean. The news would have been devastating. Developing…
9:30PM Update from TMZ:
Sources at the hospital tell us Wayne is still in critical condition in the ICU … but stabilizing.
We’re told the prognosis is uncertain.
Wayne is sleeping right now … which is odd, because he just tweeted saying he’s OK and thanking people for the prayers and love.
