Lil Wayne’s Las Vegas concert last Sunday night was canceled after the rapper was hospitalized for epilepsy-related seizures. TMZ reports that Wayne was scheduled to perform at Drais Beachclub at midnight alongside Rae Sremmurd, but that he was found unconscious in his Chicago hotel room.

Wayne was rushed to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he suffered a second seizure. According to the site, his people tried to have him discharged so he could make it to his show, but doctors advised against it because it was still risky. A representative for Wayne confirmed that he had multiple seizures and the show was canceled. He is now resting in the hospital.

Wayne has a history of epilepsy seizures since he was a child, notably suffering multiple seizures in May of 2013. He also had to cancel a scheduled E3 appearance last year due to being hospitalized.

On behalf of 411, our best wishes to Wayne for a full and quick recovery.
