Lil Wayne‘s visitor’s list at Cedars-Sinai hospital in L.A. is quite the star-studded lineup! The Young Money boss, who was hospitalized last week following a series of seizures, has been surrounded by friends and family since he was first re-admitted on Wednesday, March 13 — including bold-faced names like Nicki Minaj, Drake and Birdman

As TMZ photos confirm, Minaj, 30, dropped by Lil Wayne’s bedside on Saturday, March 16, to check in on the “Got Money” rapper. The “Starships” rapper and Lil Wayne have been longtime friends, ever since he signed her to his label in 2007.

Conflicting reports about Lil Wayne’s health condition have been circulating ever since the rapper was rushed to the hospital to be treated for severe seizures on Tuesday, March 12. He was released on Wednesday, but quickly readmitted after his bodyguards found him unconscious on the floor several hours later.

On Friday, TMZ originally reported that the rapper’s health was in very bad shape, saying that he was being read his last rites. But a source close to the “Lollipop” rapper told Us that those reports have been wildly exaggerated.

“He drank too much sizzurp to get a better high,” the source explained to Us. “He needs rehab but he’s not close to death or anything. He’s fine and just coming down off the high.”

Sizzurp is a highly addictive, recreational drug that involves prescription-strength cough syrup, sugary sodas and hard candies, typically sipped out of Styrofoam cups.

Lil Wayne has often rapped about the concoction, notably in his 2008 hit “Me and My Drank.”
