Rappers might need to slow down on that YOLO life. Lil Wayne once said in one of his lyrics, “Live fast, die young, leave a nice corpse,” and if he doesn’t slow down on his purple drank, weed smoking life style he might do just that considering he the ordeal he experienced on a flight yesterday.
The story, according to TMZ:
Lil Wayne made an emergency landing in Texas after suffering seizure-like symptoms on a private jet …
A source close to Weezy — real name Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. – tells us, right after the plane touched down … the rapper was transported to a local hospital to get treatment on Thursday afternoon.
We’re told Wayne was at the hospital for several hours … he checked out around 6 PM local time.
It’s unclear if doctors made an exact diagnosis — but we’re told Wayne is “doing better.”
Does Rick Ross come to anyone else’s mind? Earlier this year Rozay suffered an actual seizure – twice — aboard flights, which he attributed to a diet of heavy weed smoking and late-night drinking. Everyone else was looking at his large belly thinking he better slow down but nobody can sustain a routine like that no matter how tiny you are. Weezy I’m looking at you. Hopefully this will be a wake-up call to get off of whatever stuff has him thinking he’s an alien for real.

Some of Hollywood’s most wanted men have their fair share of female attention. Although many have reaped the rewards of celebrity in the dating department, we know that their perspectives must have changed when they had their own daughters to raise. Here are some photos of some Black Hollywood celebs and their little (and not so little) girls!
The youngest child of Juanita and Michael Jordan has kept a low profile as a sensible and well-grounded teen. She’s set to start her freshman year in college at Syracuse University in the fall. Luckily for her, she not only has a superstar dad looking out for her but two older brothers as well.
(Forbes) — The numbers for Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV came in this morning, and they were staggering: 940,000 copies sold in the first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan, placing the album firmly atop the Billboard 200 chart. Tha Carter IV was Lil Wayne’s third No. 1 debut; remarkably, its first-week sales total was more than twice that of Jay-Z and Kanye West’sWatch The Throne, which moved 436,000 units when it hit stores last month. So how did the diminutive Young Money/Cash Money star—who finished behind Jay-Z and Kanye on our annual Hip-Hop Cash Kings list—manage to outsell a pair of heavyweights? “I think just the hard work, all the years and everything we’ve been through as a unit,” says Cash Money Records chief Bryan “Birdman” Williams, who was deeply involved in the album’s production and promotion. “It’s our season, that’s just how it goes … [Wayne] is the best doing it, and everybody is just starting to see it. I don’t think any artist in the world is going to be as big as he’s going to be.”

Lil Wayne is everywhere. By many counts, he’s the hottest rapper in the game and it’s clear he’s not reserving any of that talent exclusively for himself and his Cash Money crew. The best-selling artist spreads his lyrics far and wide, to the point that you’d be hard pressed to find an R&B crooner or rapper who hasn’t worked with him in the past two years. His ubiquity is unquestionable but his commercial strategy does beg the question: is he spreading himself too thin?
We can assume that Young Jeezy, Kelly Rowland and J.Lo paid big bucks to have Weezy do a guest verse on their new singles but how much will Lil Wayne’s appearances on those tracks really boost the popularity of those singles, considering getting Weezy doesn’t appear to be a hard feat.
“By definition, Lil Wayne is overexposed,” said Mic Sean, lawyer and CEO of artist management firm Soul Rebel NYC. “But in hip-hop and the music industry in general, you’re perceived based on your most recent successes. For Lil Wayne, having recently been released from Rikers Island, it was necessary for him to re-establish himself as the hitmaker that he is.”
He certainly has established himself as the hardest working rapper in the business but definitely not the most selective. His counterparts, like Jay-Z for example, appear less frequently on tracks, which may very well help feed their demand.
