After leaving an Omaha hospital following treatment for two minor seizures he suffered Monday, Lil Wayne made a surprise appearance to perform at Samsung's booth at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles on Wednesday (June 15).

Wayne was originally scheduled to perform at the Samsung booth Tuesday afternoon to promote his new skateboarding game Sqvad Up, but he had to cancel his appearance because of the medical emergency. 

Lil Wayne Leaves Hospital After Seizure Scares

The rapper was being treated at an Omaha hospital after suffering two seizures on Monday while mid-air. Wayne’s private jet was forced to make an emergency landing for his fourth high-profile seizure in four years. Wayne has admitted that he suffers from epilepsy and his seizures are due to stress, lack of rest and overworking himself.

Wayne seemed to be back and full of energy at E3, performing songs like “A Milli,” “Lollipop” and “Truffle Butter.” The hip-hop artist is scheduled to perform Saturday with 2 Chainz at the Sprint Center.
