Lil' Wayne

Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., aka Lil' Wayne's battle with epilepsy first came to light in March of 2013 when he was hospitalized after suffering multiple seizures. About a month later, the "Let It Rock" rapper was hospitalized again for the same reason, after which he decided to start speaking out. "The thing is, man, the bad news is I'm an epileptic, so I'm prone to seizures. 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," Wayne told LA Power 106 DJ, Felli Fel (via MTV). And he doesn't have a mild case. He claims his heart heart rate went down "to like, 30 percent," and that he nearly died during the second reported incident.
But unlike most others on this list, Lil' Wayne doesn't seem to take his condition as seriously as he probably should. According to The Daily Beast, Weezy has been open in the past about having difficulty kicking his habit of drinking "lean," a codeine-laced cocktail that is popular with a lot of rappers. Though codeine dependency doesn't have a direct connection to seizures or epilepsy, it's probably not the greatest idea to recreationally ingest a powerful opioid when you already have a condition that sends you to the hospital multiple times a year, like it did again in 2016. Hopefully "President Carter" will see the light soon, and start taking care of himself a little better.
