Lil Wayne is in “critical condition” at Los Angeles’ Cedar Sinai Hospital, according to TMZ.

The 30-year-old was admitted into the ICU on Tuesday evening after suffering from multiple seizures originally, but was re-admitted after bodyguards found him in his room shaking uncontrollably on his floor and unconscious.

According to reports, he was unable to be stabilized by the ICU and has been “given his last rites” with family and friends surrounding him on Friday evening.

Reports also speculate that the rapper has been placed on a medically-induced coma and is breathing through tubes after he  was in need of stabilization upon arriving at Cedars Sinai.

Sources have told TMZ that there is evidence of Lil Wayne going on a “Sizzurp binge” after he was released from the hospital on Wednesday.

Doctors apparently found high amounts of codeine in his system and needed his stomach pumped three times when he was admitted.
