Mere minutes after Jay-Z dropped his Beyoncé-featuring “Family Feud” videoLil Wayne unleashed his own remix of the 4:44 single.

Weezy’s revamped version opens with a long verse from Drake, in which the Toronto MC demands a salute from Donald Trump and even lends his support to onetime enemy Meek Millg. “I need my paper long, like a Milly verse / Too long, like a sentence from a Philly judge / Fuck is the point in all the beefing, when we really blood? / Nobody wins win the family feuds,” Drake raps, addressing Meek’s recent prison sentence.

Wayne, meanwhile, pops up a couple minutes in, threatening to “pick you off like pickin' peppers, Peter Piper today.”

Lil Wayne’s initial version of Dedication 6, released on Christmas, didn't include “Family Feud,” but Wayne did hint that there's another volume still to come. Keep your eyes peeled for more.

Lil Wayne Hospitalized After Suffering Multiple Seizures, Cancels Las Vegas Show

UPDATE: Lil Wayne appears to be on the mend according to close family members.

In a series of Twitter posts, the rapper's daughter Reginae Carter updated fans on his health. "My dad is doing fine everyone! Thanks for the concerns. You guys are amazing," she shared Monday morning. "Oh yeah.. & don't believe everything you hear."


Rapper Lil Wayne has cancelled his Las Vegas show on Sunday night after suffering multiple seizures, reportsTMZ.

According to the site, the rapper was hospitalized at Northwestern Memorial in Chicago after being found unconscious in his hotel room at Westin Michigan Avenue Chicago. Despite suffering from the debilitating seizures as a result of his ongoing bout with epilepsy, the "Lollipop" hitmaker has reportedly been released from the hospital.

The outlet also reports that a rep for the "Sucker for Pain" rapper has confirmed that he had to cancel his Vegas gig as a result of the multiple seizures he had this weekend. Additionally, the rep says that the music man is currently resting.

Since the rapper has previously suffered seizures while flying before, it is likely that doctors advised him not to fly due to his condition. In 2016, Wayne had to make an emergency landing during a flight from Wisconsin to California.

Wayne was supposed to perform at Drai's Beachclub at the Cromwell at midnight with Rae Sremmurd. On Sunday night, the club confirmed on its Instagram that Wayne had been replaced at the last minute and had been replaced by DJ Franzen.

"Due to unforeseen circumstances Lil Wayne will be canceling his previously scheduled performance tonight at Drai's Nightclub located at the Cromwell Hotel. In lieu of his absence T.I. will be performing in his place alongside DJ Franzen for another installment of Sundries," announced the hotspot.

Back in 2013, Wayne alarmed fans when he was hospitalized after suffering multiple seizures. The performer later revealed that he's epileptic and "prone to seizures."

"This wasn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh...I have had a bunch of seizures, you just never hear about them," he told Power 106's DJ Felli Fel at the time. "My heart rate went down to 30 percent. I have people around me who know how to handle it. This time was real bad because I had three back to back and the third one was so bad."

Lil Wayne Returns to the Stage to Perform Following Seizures

Lil Wayne is already back on his feet after suffering two seizures Monday.

Lil Wayne is already back on his feet after suffering two seizures Monday.

The "Forever" rapper performed at the Electronic Entertainment Expo Wednesday only two days after his plane had to make an emergency landing because of his health scare. Based on video footage, the 33-year-old rapper appeared to be feeling better as he worked his way through the crowd smiling.

After Lil Wayne was released from the hospital, his rep told E! News that he was on the mend. "We can confirm that he did experience two minor seizures yesterday. Under the guidance of his own doctors, he is now in stable condition and good spirits," his rep said. "He thanks his fans for their everlasting support, prayers and well wishes."

The good news excited fans, but the rapper made everyone even more relieved when he broke his silence after the medical emergency. "Thx for the prayers!! I love y'all!" he tweeted.

The "How to Love" rapper was flying from Milwaukee, Wis., to California when he had to make an emergency landing in Nebraska. Omaha Airport Authority confirmed to E! News that it received a medical divert call around 2:36 p.m. local time. When ambulance and the rescue fire department responded, the party involved refused treatment. The plane departed after authorities terminated the response 30 minutes after the initial call came in.

But E! News later learned that the jet arrived again at 3:56 p.m. where the passenger on board was transported to a local hospital by ambulance. The passenger walked off the plane on his own accord.

Lil Wayne revealed a few years ago that he has epilepsy and is "prone to seizures."

We're glad to see you're feeling better, Lil Wayne!
