My cousin’s birthday is today. She made her status “Lil’ Wayne dying on my birthday?” And said read TMZ for more information.
So I did. http://www.tmz.com/2013/03/15/lil-wayne-seizures-hospitalized-drugs-sizzurp-critical-condition-icu/
All it says is that basically they had to pump his stomach due to a “sizzurp” binge. If I am guessing right, sizzurp is a cough medicine “drink”? Such a sad shame.
I use to listen to him in my teen years, but not now. Either way 30 years old is so young to die, all because of some drink he made, or someone made.

Sizzurp is mixing a normally codeine based cough syrup with alcohol and soda.
The alcohol exacerbates the impact of the syrup, and is quite dangerous.
Sad, indeed, but as with all recreational drugs and home made compounds you are taking your life into your hands when ingesting.

30 years old is indeed too young to die for this stupid mistake, but also quite old enough to understand the consequences of such actions.
I’m sure people die all the time from overdoses, and probably many even younger. The fact that is he famous and this is actually in the new doesn’t make it any more tragic though.

This is sad – not bc I’m a huge Weezy fan or anything, but just because they feel the need to get high with dangerous drugs that could cost them their lives. Here’s hoping that he makes it through this and turns his life around.

That’s really sad. I hope people are paying attention to how dangerous and harmful drinking cough syrup can be.

@pinkshoes: Oh, 100% AGREED! That is exactly what I was thinking about when reading it. Way to many young teens/adults are using these homemade drugs, and many are dieing from it. It is sad. Very sad.
And many young teens look up to him, and probably even heard about this drink from him. Again, SO SAD!

I’m not so sure this story is true. No real reputable websites are reporting on it. Perez Hilton is saying the reports are conflicting. It hasn’t made it to people.com yet so I am hoping it is all a hoax.

@JessesGirl: Yea, I never even thought to google it, to see if anyone else reported it! Good call!

@JessesGirl: Same here with conflicting reports. A guy in his clique, Mack Maine and his father figure, Bryan “Birdman” Williams said he’s alive and well on their twitters. I’m not sure who to believe. I’m praying for him and his kids regardless.

@NaijaPuertoDorian: I just read that, too! So IDK what to think.

GASP…mixing cough syrup with alcohol is a BAD idea? Good riddance. I am so sick of these famous people abusing drugs and glorifying that idiotic culture for our kids today.

I guess we’ll just have to wait to find out the truth, but honestly I wouldn’t be shocked if it was. The man is quite wreckless in terms of his health, and it makes me sad that some people think of him as a role model.
Regardless, he and his family are in my prayers.
