Lil Wayne reportedly has been hospitalized again.

According to TMZ, Wayne was hospitalized for seizures in Los Angeles this week. The rapper suffered a seizure on Tuesday after shooting a music video and was taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital.

The 30-year-old is said to be doing better, according to the outlet.

This wouldn't be the first time Wayne has been hospitalized for seizures.

On Oct. 25, his private plane had to make an emergency landing because he allegedly suffered a seizure-like attack while en route, according to a separate TMZ report. The rapper's rep claimed he just had a migrane and was dehydrated.

“Lil Wayne was successfully released from the hospital after being treated for a severe migraine and dehydration. He is at home on doctor mandated rest and will return to work soon. He appreciates all of his fans for their support and love.”

However, on Oct. 26, he was hospitalized a second time after he reportedly suffered a seizure while on board another flight.

The following month Wayne admitted to MTV News that he was taking seizure medication and that doctors had ordered him to "drink four water bottles a day."

Nicki Minaj later told MTV that the rapper is in good hands.

"Everybody that's around him is taking care of him. Wayne has so many people around him that truly, genuinely love him. I'm not worried at all," she said. "Even him being on the plane, thank God that there was somebody there right away that was able to help him. I'm just thankful that he was OK."

On Tuesday, Wayne was with Minaj in California shooting the music video for her "Re-Up" single, "High School."
