Lil Wayne has been released from hospital after he found unconscious in his Chicago hotel room after suffering multiple seizures.

The 'Lollipop' hitmaker - who suffers from epilepsy - is taking two weeks off to rest after he suffered multiple seizures over the weekend and was found unconscious in his Chicago hotel room.

Sources close to the rapper told gossip website TMZ that the star's busy schedule and a lack of sleep was to blame for the situation. 

The 34-year-old star is said to have been going out after his shows and then heading to the studio. 

While Wayne is going to take a few weeks out, his next gig is said to be on September 23 at WAMO FEST in Pittsburgh. 

Lil Wayne is 'doing fine' following seizure ordeal

The hip hop star - whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter - had to pull out of a planned performance in Las Vegas over the weekend and he was admitted to Northwestern Memorial hospital, where he had another seizure.

The 'Sucker For Pain' hitmaker's daughter Reginae Carter revealed her father was "doing fine" in hospital on Monday. 

She tweeted: "My dad is doing fine everyone ! Thanks for the concerns you guys are amazing (sic)"

Wayne's team had tried to get him discharged on Sunday afternoon so he could perform at Drai's Beachclub at the Cromwell Hotel in Vegas, but doctors advised against the request because they thought it was too risky for him to fly.
