"The thing is, man, the bad news is, I'm an epileptic, so I'm prone to seizures," Wayne told Los Angeles radio station Power 106 after his hospitalization.

"This isn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure. I've had a bunch of seizures; y'all just never hear about it.

"This time it got real bad because I got three of 'em in a row, and on the third one, my heart rate went down to, like, 30 percent. Basically, I could've died soon. That's why it was so serious.

"The reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest and overworking myself. That's typical me, though."

UPDATE: 2:19 p.m -- Lil Wayne just took to Twitter to declare, "I'm fine.
