Lil Wayne Heading Back to Work Despite Doctor’s Order to Rest


Lil Wayne is being stubborn and putting work over his health following a recent seizure attack, which left him hospitalized in Chicago, Illinois over the weekend.

According to his manager, Weezy, who was discovered unconscious in his hotel room after suffering multiple seizures, doesn’t want to listen to doctors and rest.

He was discharged from the hospital earlier this week and is expected to resume his live shows on September 23, but his manager Cortez Bryant doubts the rapper will be taking it easy as he continues his recovery.

“I tell him that (to take time off to rest) all the time but I don’t think that’s gonna work, man,” Bryant told TMZ.com. “He’s a workaholic. That’s what got him to where he is now, man. He’s just (in) the studio all the time trying to make music, get through this situation and give his fans what they need.”

Bryant also insisted Wayne’s health problems are solely the result of his epilepsy, a brain cell disorder, which they have learned to deal with in recent years. Weezy went public with his epilepsy diagnosis in 2013

“He’s a epileptic, so that’s the reality of it,” Bryant added. “It’s something that we’re gonna have to deal with for the rest of his life and, you know, we’ll just make sure he’s popping meds (sic) and try to force him to get some rest, but sometimes he doesn’t do that.”

Despite Wayne’s condition, Bryant is adamant the illness won’t prompt the 34-year-old rapper to retire from the music industry early: “It’s not gonna hinder us and stop us,” he added.

Bryant’s comments emerge days after Wayne’s daughter Reginae Carter assured fans her famous father was “doing fine.”
