While there are still whispers that Lil Wayne ended up in the hospital a week back because he overdosed on purple drank, or that the Codeine made him epileptic or what have you, he went on the radio to confirm his seizures really are a big deal. Good thing he's in all those stage shows with the flashing lights.

"I'm an epileptic, so I'm prone to seizures," he told L.A.'s Power 106, according to People. "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."

Weezy said the recent attacks almost killed him, although he wouldn't say if he really was in a medically induced coma or not.

"It got real bad because I got three [seizures] in a row, and on the third one my heart rate went down to, like, 30 percent," he said. "Basically, I could've died soon. That's why it was so serious."

But it weren't drank, y'all: "The reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest and overworking myself. That's typical me, though." Good thing he could still stop by Tampa for some skateboarding, though.
