The late nights MCs so often rap about are probably a good deal more perilous than most of us realize. Fredo Santana served up a reminder of that when he posted a picture of himself on a hospital bed onto his Instagram. He was rushed to the hospital after suffering a seizure yesterday (March 23).

He captioned the picture, "When u working hard no sleep u get sleep deprived an have a light seizure 😞." In the photo you can see Fredo with all sorts of patches and wires attached to his chest, but he doesn't look too distraught. You can see the post for yourself below.

While the Plugged In artist cited a lack of sleep as the cause of his seizure, some fans assumed his predilection for lean might have led him to the hospital bed. Folks have always made a connection between rappers suffering debilitating effects after drinking the cocktail, and when Lil Wayne suffered three seizures in under a month last summer, conversation surrounding the supposed connection surfaced once again.

Based on his willingness to post an Instagram picture so shortly after his medical emergency, and his description of the seizure as "light," Fredo seems to be okay.

XXL has reached out to Fredo's reps for a comment regarding his condition. We're wishing him a speedy recovery.
