Wayne's representatives did not return calls for comment.

TMZ said the rapper, 30, was admitted to Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles and was released on Wednesday, but readmitted a few hours later after his bodyguard found him unconscious on the floor of his room.

Lil Wayne, a native of New Orleans, began rapping at the age of nine, when he became the youngest artist to be signed by Cash Money record label.

The "Got Money" rapper has released nine studio albums over a two decade career and has become one of the biggest names in rap music.

Lil’ Wayne’s recent health issues has hit a breaking point. After suffering two seizures on Tuesday night in Los Angeles, the Young Money rapper suffered another seizure on Friday afternoon. Lil’ Wayne was rushed to Cedars-Sinai hospital and placed in ICU while being restrained for “shaking uncontrollably.” According to TMZ the unstable Weezy was placed in an induced coma, family and close friends are in travel rushing to his side.

Currently breathing through tubes, it’s being reported that there’s evidence Lil’ Wayne went on a sizzurp binge after being released from hospital on Wednesday following his two previous seizures this week. Doctors have apparently found high amounts of codeine in his system after his stomach was flushed three times. While TMZ continues to stick by its reports, Mack Maine has denied those claims saying Wayne is doing well in hospital taking in basketball action. An official statement from Young Money/Cash Money will be made soon.

UPDATE: Mack Maine, Birdman and DJ Franzen (via Cortez Bryant) state that Lil’ Wayne is fine and watching the Syracuse/Georgetown game.
