Lil Wayne needs a hug.
2013 wasn't all peaches and cream for the Young Money rapper. In March, he was rushed to the hospital after suffering several seizures. His experimental I Am Not a Human Being II album, also released in March, barely fueled the same results as its chart-topping predecessor Tha Carter IV. (I Am Not a Human Being II peaked at No. 2 on the charts and has sold half a million copies to date, compared to Tha Carter IV 3.5 million.) As a result his name was omitted from the BET and VMA nominees lists.
Weezy took to Twitter to apologize for his absence from the upcoming awards shows.
Noticed I wasn't nominated nor involved n da MTV VMA's nor da BET awards...I apologize to my fans and I promise 2 work harder if it kills me

Lil Wayne is currently working on his Dedication 5 mixtape with DJ Drama. He released Dedication 4 around Labor Day last year, so expect 5 to hit soon. The "6 Foot 7 Foot" rapper is currently on his “America’s Most Wanted” tour. It raps Sept. 2 in Phoenix, AZ.
