Lil Wayne has suffered multiple seizures, according to TMZ, and was hospitalized earlier today in Chicago.

Wayne, who has been open about his ongoing battle with epilepsy, was found unconscious in his hotel room at the The Westin Michigan Avenue Chicago. He was rushed to nearby Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where, according to TMZ sources, he suffered at least one additional seizure.

TMZ reached out to Lil Wayne's camp to find out whether or not he decided to—against doctors ordered—be discharged from the hospital and fly to Las Vegas for a late night performance. As of press time, there have been no updates.

Sunday isn't the first time Wayne has suffered a seizure, which the rapper says is the direct result of his epilepsy—not from sipping lean. In June 2016, Wayne's private jet was forced to make an emergency landing after he suffers a serious seizure onboard.

Let's pray for Wayne's health. We owe him that much.
