Fans of Lil Wayne can rest easy.
The rapper, who was admitted to Ceder-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles last week after suffering a seizure, has been released. While details of the reasons for his hospitalization and treatment have not been revealed, online rumors had circulated that Lil Wayne had been in a potentially life-threatening condition, CNN noted.
In an effort to dispel those rumors, Lil Wayne and the president of his Young Money record label, took to Twitter to say the rapper was fine. Other members of the rapper’s entourage have dismissed speculation that he had almost died.
The rapper, who won a 2008 Grammy Award for this Tha Carter III album, has a history of seizures. According to Billboard, he has placed 109 songs on the Hot 100 chart.
Last year, Lil Wayne told MTV that he had signed a deal with Cash Money Records. Rumors say that deal is worth as much as $150 million.
