Lil Wayne’s health is still shaky. The YMCMB rapper was admitted to the hospital for a suspected codeine overdose six days ago, and remains in the intensive care unit. 

TMZ reports that the “No Worries” rapper’s condition has not improved enough to be moved out of the ICU. Doctors at Los Angeles’s Cedars-Sinai hospital are monitoring him closely after he was admitted last Wednesday (March 13) after another seizure and a suspected sizzurp drinking binge overdose.

Reportedly, Weezy’s stomach had to be pumped three times to remove the drugs from his system. On Friday night, TMZ reported that Tunechi was on the brink of death, which was vehemently denied by friends and family including Young Money president Mack Maine and Atlanta rapper T.I.

In the days since the announcement of his ill health, Weezy has a had a steady stream of visitors including NBA point guard Chris Paul and his YMCMB family (Drake, Nicki Minaj and Birdman).

Lil Wayne’s new album, I Am Not A Human Being 2, is due in stores March 26. At the top of the month, Tunechi announced that he was postponing a scheduled European tour to finish the album. There is still no word if his current health concerns have affected the release of the project.
