Lil Wayne is in critical condition at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles following a series of seizures earlier this week, a source tells Us Weekly.

The “Tap Out” rapper was put into an induced coma after his condition was determined to be unstable, according to TMZ — the seizures were so severe this time that the rapper reportedly had to be put in restraints because he was shaking uncontrollably.

According to TMZ, Lil Wayne’s mother is already in a plane on her way to her son’s bedside, and all further decisions about his health will be held until her arrival.
