Lil Wayne is back in full force after his near death scare a few weeks ago. Weezy recently opened up to L.A. radio station Power 106.1 on multiple subjects.

On his seizures: ”The bad news is I’m an epileptic. I’m prone to seizures. This isn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure. I’ve had a bunch of seizures, ya’ll just never hear about them. But this time it got real bad ’cause I had three of them in a row and on the third one, my heart rate went down to like 30 percent. Basically, I could’ve died, so that is why it was so serious.”

On the reason for his hospitalization: “But the reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest, overworking myself. That’s just typical me though.”

On his past health issues: “I have people around me. I actually have [the seizures] so much they already know what to do. They already know how to handle it. Certain times I don’t even go to the hospital, but this time, it was real bad because it was three in a row, and I’ve never had three back to back like that.The third one was so bad and I live in the hills in L.A. So the reason why it was bad was that I live all the way at the top, so you know how hard it is getting down those hills. That was what was so scary about it.”

On TMZ’s report that he nearly died: “That’s what they do. I can’t be upset at that. I get upset at my kids when they do things that I tell them not to do. I can’t be upset at TMZ for doing what they do. They gon’ probably come out tomorrow and say something else about somebody else that ain’t true. That’s what they do. The truth isn’t good enough for them, so they gotta twist everything up.”

On his exclusion from MTV’s “Hottest MCs in the Game”: “I didn’t even check the top 10 list, but I’m glad I didn’t make it neither… I probably pissed some people off at MTV or something.”

It’s good to hear that Wayne is doing well. His new album ‘I Am Not A Human Being II’ just dropped and things are starting to look up for the rap legend.

Coming Home To Your Dog Is Reason Enough To Never Drink And Drive (Video)

This commercial for Budweiser, however, is changing the game in the best way possible. Instead of promoting beer, the commercial aims to promote responsible drinking. It features a man […]

This 2-Year-Old Choreographer Has More Swag Than You Ever Will (Video)

Adults often spend way too much time worrying about what other people think. That carefree nature is what makes them so damn charming. Take this tot, for instance. A 2-year-old dancer named Zaya […]
