Lil Wayne

Day 6 in Intensive Care

EXCLUSIVE

0318_lil_wayne_01

Lil Wayne is still in rough shape ... and remains in the intensive care unit at an L.A. hospital 6 days after being admitted for seizures stemming from a suspected drug overdose ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us ... Wayne's condition has not improved enough to be moved out of the ICU ... and he continues to be monitored very closely by staff at L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai hospital.

We know Wayne has been surrounded by friends and family since he was admitted to the ICU this past Wednesday ... and we're told the mood around Wayne's bedside has been very serious.

Among Wayne's visitors -- Drake, Chris Paul, Nicki Minaj, Birdman and others.

TMZ broke the story ... Wayne's stomach was pumped at least 3 times after doctors suspected he had overdosed on the prescription drug codeine ... the main ingredient in "sizzurp."

Wayne has struggled with codeine for years -- and just a few months ago suggested he had quit using the powerful painkiller.

It's funny how so many people got mad at TMZ for reporting on Lil Wayne's status when in all actuality-they're usually telling the truth. As annoying as they may be to the stars:they're pretty much on point. Media Take Out or "Stars"-I'd more than likely doubt-TMZ? Not so much....

And every INNOCENT black child caught in the middle of gang gunfire, every child trapped in a community of violent black males who embrace the "Wayne Principle" that it is cool to to deal drugs, shoot to kill without remorse, etc. -- those children in those terror zones were ALSO someone's children. Wayne has gotten rich by convincing the intellectually-challenged in his own race to rob, deal, shoot and kill EACH OTHER.


I want you to imagine, for a moment, that someone produced a product (any product) that encouraged JEWISH boys to kill each other, then distributed that product in JEWISH neighborhoods. Can you conceive of ANY cir***stance in which Jewish parents would welcome that product into their homes, and would deify those who produced it??? OF COURSE NOT!!! They would be out in the streets in a heartbeat to rid their neighborhoods of the corrupting message (before a SINGLE Jewish kid was harmed) because the lives of their children mean EVERYTHING to them. But blacks care more about Wayne and other rappers who promote violence, than they do about the lives of their own children. You welcome their messages of self-hate, criminality and killing into your homes and allow your fatherless children to feast on a steady diet of death. Wayne's undeniable message has always been: "YOU'RE NOTHIN' BUT N!GGAS, SO IT'S COOL TO KILL EACH OTHER!" Again, imagine a JEWISH parent allowing a similar message of "Your're nothing but k!kes, so kill each other." into THEIR homes. It would not happen in 100 lifetimes.

So yes, Wayne is dying, and no, I shall not mourn him. If LiLo were to drop dead today, I also would not mourn her, but at least she has only hurt HERSELF. She is not so sub-human that she has gotten rich off of the blood of innocent children who LOOK LIKE HER. THAT is Wayne's evil legacy, and for that, he shall now pay the ultimate price. For in the battle between good and evil, evil can triumph for only the briefest of interludes. Ask not for whom the bell tolls, Mr. Carter. It tolls for thee.

He's probably going to come out drooling and looking like he suffers from down syndrome or some kind of mental retardation after all those seizures.

Just thinking about drinking that crap makes me want to throw up. He takes is because he is sick? In a previous interview he states that he needs it because he is under a lot of pressure. Doctors do not prescribe codeine for anxiety. (or "under pressure"). He is addicted to this very highly addictive medication and it will kill him. Sooner or later the codeine will win.
