These days, rap stars and high profile athletes go hand in hand. Many are good friends outside of their personas on the field or in the studio. Possibly the most recognizable rapper in the world, ‘Lil Wayne, was hospitalized last week after having seizures brought about by a “sizzurp” binge – “sizzurp” is the street name for a drink mixture of cough medicine and prescription codeine.

Los Angeles Clippers point guard, Chris Paul, is pretty good friend with Weezy and decided to pay him a visit at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Lil Wayne had no shortage of famous visitors last night – Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul and his wife Jada stopped by Cedars-Sinai to see how the famous rapper was doing.
Cameras also caught Drake, Weezy’s protégé, visiting Wayne last night as well.
As TMZ first reported, Wayne was hospitalized twice this week for seizures. His situation was dire last night, but his condition eventually stabilized.
When news first broke that Wayne was hospitalized, all sort of crazy rumors were swirling, including people thinking he had died and/or was having his last rites read to him. I am not the biggest Lil’ Wayne fan, but I am glad his condition has improved and stabilized. Hopefully the rap mogul uses this situation as a lesson, and makes better decisions regarding his health in the future.
