Lil Wayne's Doctor Says 'No Flying!' After Seizure: Will Weezy Ever Rap Again?

It was the second seizure heard 'round the rap world.

A year after Rick Ross suffered a pair of mid-flight epileptic episodes, Lil Wayne's private jet was forced to make an emergency landing in Texas following the Young Money Cash Money capo's own medical nightmare at 30,000 feet.

As a result of Wayne's sky-high seizure, the MC's doctor has ordered him to keep both feet on the ground and steer clear of airplanes, TMZ reports.

So the chartered flight may have been Mr. Carter's last. But the real question: Will Weezy ever rap again?

This means Weezy will have more time to skate because he can't travel. And an even bigger excuse to stick rap music on the back burner because he can't fly around to promote records.

In August, retirement rumors resurfaced after Wayne told Atlanta radio personality DJ Drama, "Rap's taking a backseat to skating."

A combination of boredom and restlessness was to blame, Weezy said, and he felt that he owed it to his fans to step away from music for a while.

"I've been out on everybody's songs," he said. "I'm still on everybody's songs. My artists are doin' awesome. I believe the fans deserve some peace from me."

But creative expression can be therapeutic, especially following a traumatic medical episode. Surely, music is helping Weezy bounce back from his seizure, right?


Skateboarding has been Wayne's preferred rehab. In fact, the rapper(?) successfully landed his first boardslide handrail on Monday.

He's yet to mention any plans as to if and when he'll jump back into the studio.
