Lil Wayne

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.

As a past regular cannabis smoker I would say his seizures could not be caused by pot, Codeine is a very likely cause despite his attempted mind games. Such as "suggesting" he had quit abusing it.
Some have suggested stroke. Speaking from first hand experience I would say that is ridiculous.

I would use the term "Musician" loosely.

Hardly a musician....he's an overpaid rapper and calling him a musician is an insult to all musicians!

Hardly a musician. That's a slap in the face to people that can play instruments, write music and sing. Rapping isn't music....it's offensive.

So many people want to legalize drugs. Pot, Cocaine, heroine, wet. The thing I don't understand is I do not know of a doctor who prescribes the chit.

Was talking to a friend of mine about him yesterday. Has habit of drinking to much and popping a million pills at the same time most recently 20 valiums. How the hell she's standing will never know). Told her don't be stupid like Lil Wayne. Everyone's luck runs out when you screw around with drugs. Hope he makes it and has learned his lesson.

6 days in ICU is not a good sign. He must really be in rough shape. Prayers for you Wayne. It may be time to give up your intense partying bro
