Lil Wayne

OUT OF ICU

Upgraded to Stable Condition

EXCLUSIVE

0318_lil_wayne_gettyGood news for Lil Wayne -- the rapper has finally been moved out of the Intensive Care Unit at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles after doctors determined his condition has stabilized ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the rapper tell us ... Wayne has been moved into a "regular room" at the hospital and no longer needs intense, round-the-clock treatment after a suspected codeine overdose last week.

We broke the story ... doctors pumped Wayne's stomach at least 3 times after the rapper began experiencing severe and violent seizures. He had been in the ICU since Wednesday.

Now, we're told the 30-year-old has been walking around the hospital floor on his own -- accompanied by a team of bodyguards.

We're told he's also eating on his own ... and could even be discharged from the hospital in the near future.

May you have the hindsight to know where you've been
the foresight to know where you're going
and the insight to know when you're going too far.

TMZ you've lost ALL credibility with your "reporting" of this story! First he's on his death bed, a few hrs ago he was still in ICU, now he's walking around and stuff o_O... ALL credibility GONE!!!!

Hopefully, for the Hadiya Pendletons of the world, death has merely taken a brief holiday and will soon revisit Mr. Carter. Hadiya was the 15-y.o. black HONOR STUDENT senselessly killed by Chicago gang bangers in January. She is representative of the thousands of innocent young people who will die at the hands of animals who learn their lessons of unrelenting violence from human crud like Wayne and his fellow rappers.


With her academic excellence, Hadiya could have contributed something of value to the world; she could have helped others and lived a prosperous life without ever doing evil. Conversely, Wayne is a human leech who sucks the blood and morality out of the souls of every black person who listens to his "music." He will continue in that sordid role until death pays its long-overdue visit.
