Lil Wayne said publicly for the first time what we told you about 2 weeks ago ... he was near death after suffering multiple, violent seizures.

Wayne, during an interview with Power 106 in L.A. yesterday, said he's an epileptic and prone to seizures.  And he said ... he's been having seizures for a long time.

As for the episodes earlier this month that landed him in ICU for 6 days at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center ... Wayne said he suffered 3 seizures in a row and his heart rate went down to 30%, adding, "I could've died."

Question is if he actually learned anything from this incident or does he now think he's invincible?

If Lil Wayne would have passed away he would have became a legend. Unfortunately, now we will have to just bare with his mediocre music until that time does come and he is hardly famous anymore.

Go Ahead and just die Lil Wayne. You are a no good ghetto beat up wannabee rapper anyways. There is absolutely no rapper nowadays who will ever be able to top Notorious BIG and Tupac.

I knew TMZ was telling the truth. His visitor's faces said it all. Hopefully he learns from it.
