NEW YORK (CBNewYork/AP) — To his fans in the Big Apple and around the world, Lil Wayne says he’s OK.

The multi-platinum rapper was hospitalized in Los Angeles on Friday and reps confirmed he was “recovering.”

The rapper tweeted to his fans: “I’m good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.”

Lil Wayne’s publicist denied that he was in a medically induced coma.

However, an official statement from a publicist at record label “Young Money” said “We can confirm Lil Wayne did have a seizure and that he is recovering.”

Lil Wayne has had a history of seizures in recent years that have led to previous hospital visits.

The 30-year-old New Orleans native, whose given name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., is one of the biggest stars of not only his genre but in all music. He’s due to release his 10th album, “I Am Not a Human Being,” on March 26.
