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.

He will be the next dead celebrity! I give him a week or 2 to start the codeine again. He is a major drug addict that says he doesn't have a problem, just like Lindsey. And those who say that usually die.

He will never ever understand that syrup is just as bad for you when on pancakes. Ask DJ Screw, Big Moe, Pimp C and those little people who loved your big life so much and it included the purple drank. Wake the eff up!

Hopefully he learn a lesson especially since he has children, but I guess it is better to be cool than be a father!

I hope all these kids going around idolizing LIL Wayne take heed to this. I can't stand LIL Wayne but I don't wish him death. But he's so arrogant and thinks he can do whatever he wants because of who is is. He better realize that God is in control and he does away with people that try to corrupt his people. Take heed LIL Wayne. And by the way,i'm a radio Dj and I can't stand his music because I can't understand all that mumbling.
