Nearly 48 hours after rapper Rich Homie Quan found himself in a hospital receiving treatment for a seizure, new reports claim drugs may have contributed to the medical complication.
According to new reports, Quan may have enjoyed some "sizzurp" prior to his publicized hospitalization.
TMZ broke the story ... Quan was rushed to the hospital yesterday in ATL after he collapsed, hitting his head on the ground and suffering the seizure. His rep called it heat exhaustion. But sources close to the rapper think lean -- aka sizzurp -- may have played a part. We're told Quan was on a lean binge for days, and stopped just 3 days before the seizure. The drug can reportedly stay in your system for up to 4 days -- even longer depending on the dose ... and we're told he was a heavy abuser. (TMZ)

"Thank u lord ???????????? prayer is power," Quan tweeted May 7.
"First and foremost I want to Thank God for his blessings. Your boy just been grinding too hard. Thanks for all of the prayers... I'm okay" (Rich Homie Quan's Twitter)
