Los Angeles (CNN) — Grammy-winning and multiplatinum-selling rapper Lil Wayne suffered a seizure and “is recovering,” his record label’s publicist said Friday.

The New Orleans artist arguably occupies the highest rungs of the hip-hop world, but he shares them with fellow rapper Drake, who hails from Toronto.

Drake appeared at the Los Angeles hospital, where Lil Wayne is being treated, with an entourage of Wayne’s friends. They pulled up chairs in the hallway near his room and set up a vigil.

Twitter has lit up with rumors, spreading fears of the worst for Wayne’s outcome, but a Tweet in his name attempted to calm the tempest.

“I’m good everybody,” read a message from Lil Wayne’s Twitter account. “Thnx for the prayers and love.”

While acknowledging a medical issue, members of the New Orleans’ artist’s camp have shot down reports that he was near death.

“Dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe … that’s false!!” tweeted Mack Maine, the president of Lil Wayne’s Young Money label, around 5:20 p.m. (8:20 p.m. ET) Friday.

Sarah Cunningham, a publicist with the Young Money record label, acknowledged that Lil Wayne had a seizure.

The public relations department at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the Los Angeles hospital where the rapper is reportedly being treated, did not confirm or deny that Lil Wayne is there, per its policy.

Maine didn’t offer much detail, though he did say that he and Lil Wayne had been watching the Syracuse University Orange play Georgetown in the Big East men’s basketball tournament.

“Wayne is alive and well!” the record label president wrote on Twitter.

The rapper’s independent publicist, Kia Selby, said only, “Lil Wayne is doing well.” She strongly denied reports he was in a medically induced coma, as reported by TMZ.

Born Dwayne Carter, Lil Wayne is one of the rap world’s most successful artists. He won best rap album for “Tha Carter III” at the 2008 Grammy awards, and took home three more Grammys the following year.

Beyond winning over critics, he’s also been a commercial success. Last September, Billboard reported the rapper had tallied 109 hits on its Hot 100, surpassing the record previously held by Elvis Presley.

But he’s also run into trouble outside the studio and stage.

Lil Wayne was arrested in 2007 outside New York City’s Beacon Theater after police said they found a .40-caliber pistol on his tour bus. He ended up pleading guilty to felony gun charges and spending eight months at New York’s Rikers Island jail.

    • CHappy

      Remember this when your time comes to met your maker. I'm not a fan of his I don't agree with his life at all but I do know that we all have to go one day and none of us have figures to point. I pray that when your day comes someone will show you compassion and love despite your shortcomings.

    • Courtney

      Umm, im sorry, but, he is a human being. Im sure there are a few people in this world that think you arent gods gift either… Dont be jealous of his fame…

      • Fraze

        I AM NOT JEALOUS BY ANY MEANS, I AM ALSO A RAPPER BUT I DONT LIE IN MY SONGS, NOR DO MY LYRICS CAUSE YOUTH TO COMMIT MURDER. MY SONGS ARE ABOUT THE EXPERIENCES OF MY TIME IN THE MILITARY AND ALSO I DO CHRISTIAN MUSIC. I DONT CARE ABOUT MONEY BECAUSE MONEY IS NOT EVERYTHING AND IT CANNOT GO WITH YOU WHEN YOU DIE.

        • Elaine

          Someone who sings "Christian music" should be embarrassed to be saying such things. You are glad someone is dying? You are sick in the head. You don't like the guy? Join the club. But instead of spewing your hate…go sit down and think about going back to get your GED.

          • Fraze

            I AM EDUCATED, I HAVE MY ED.D AND PH.D. I AM STATING A POINT THAT MY LYRICS DO NOT CAUSE PEOPLE TO DO BAD THINGS. YOU WILL NEVER READ IN THE NEWS THAT SOMEONE KILLED SOMEONE AS A DIRECT RESULT OF LISTENING TO MY MUSIC. #JUSTSAYIN

        • GUEST

          IF YOU KNEW THEM LIKE I DO HOMEBOY, I BET YOU WOULDN'T SAY ANY OF THE S**T YOU ARE SAYING NOW…AND ANYONE WITH A PH.D WOULD NOT WAIST THEIR TIME SPREADING HATE ABOUT ANOTHER MAN….DUMB…ASS!!!

    • BLynn

        HERE IS A THOUGHT…….WHY DONT YOU GO TAKE A LONG WALK OFF A SHORT PIER…….AND IF YOU ARE BAD ENOUGH, MEET ME IN THE CAGE

        • Abby

          "Meet me in cage." Ha! I'm dying over here. This isn't MMA, bro… it's the internet, talk all you want….we know you live in your mom's basement.

          Fraze, I am a believer in Christ and it is not our right to judge those who god will judge himself, We judge those who are in the church. We are to pray for lil wayne and many others to seek Christ fully. Have you not read this in scripture?

          1 Corinthians 5:12
          What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside?

    • sylvia

      that's not cool to wish someone's life to end. it doesn't matter if you don't personally care for him, but he is still somene's son, father, brother, & friend. I don't agree with your statement cause @ the end of the day you are not God & can not say if this man lives or dies…it's all in God's hands he's in my prayers

    • GUEST

      ARE YOU OKAY OBVIUOUSLY YOU AINT NOONE IS BLESSED TO SEE TOMORROW I HOPE YOU YOURSELF TOGETHER CAUSE IT SEEMS YOU ARE A LITTLE TOO COMFORTABLE WITH YOURSELF TRY SERVING THE LORD CAUSE IM SURE SOMEONE THINGS THE SAME WAY WITH YOU YOU NEED SOME HELP AND I DO NOT CARE WHAT GOES ON WITH A PERSON THAT IS BETWEEN THEM AND THE LORD WHO MADE YOU GOD TRY SERVING HIM CAUSE OBVIOUSLY YOU HAVEN'T TRIED YOU DONE LOST YOUR MIND.

    • ehanleyyyy

      Fraze, who the fuck are you to say Lil Wayne should die? How would you feel if someone said, "Hey, Fraze. You deserve to die". Doesn't sound good, nor is it right. You sir, are a complete disgrace. Lil Wayne is a legend rapper. But what are you? Probably a broke ass motherfucker that's jealous of Lil Wayne since he can get more pussy than you. Aha, shutup..

    • QUEEN

      YOU'RE AN ASSHOLE! AND WE ALL HOPE YOU DROP DEAD IN A MATTER OF SECONDS! AND YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BEAT NOBODY'S ASS BUT YOUR OWN

    • Jamie

      fraze its not good to wish death upon anyone… just because you don't like him or his music does mean you can condemn him… alot of people wishes they were in his shoes and when i say in his shoes i mean have the success that he has. he had to work hard to get where he is today. i mean he didn't get his money with his looks. he got his money by selling his cds and all the tours that he did.. he lived up to his dream… he has of fans. every award he has won he has thanked his fans for their support unlike all the other singers out there…

      All rap sucks anyway. It's just fast talking so if you want to know who the best rapper of all time is John Moschitta. lmao. As for Lil Wayne he is one of the few rappers I have any respect for because he actually admits that rock and metal is better and the only reason he doesn't do rock is because rap is way easier. It's true too. Fuckers don't even play instruments. At least Wayne tries to play the guitar once in a while.

  • Soccerdad

    Well, if you're going to do drugs, you play with fire, you're going to get burned. Sad for his family but he brought it all on himself!

  • 11mandi

    Fraze :: how dare you ?? No madder what you opinion is he is still someone friend, son brother, if u don't have respect for him that's fine but have respect for his friends and family, not only Karma is not something you want to piss off ! It might bite u in the rear !

  • Fraze

    FIRST OF ALL, I KNOW THAT HE IS GARBAGE, HIS FAMILY DISOWNED HIM SO HIS SO-CALLED FAMILY THAT YOU SPEAK OF IS FAKE. HIS "SKILLS" ON THE MIC ARE WEAK, I AM A BETTER RAPPER THAN HE IS AND HE IS AN WEAK ASS BIATCH….

  • Renek7

    All of a sudden everyone has something to say about a person that you don't even know. Let him do whatever he wants, it's his life. YMCMB!!!!

    • Fraze

      I HAVE CHALLENGED HIM TO A RAP BATTLE AND HE REFUSED STATING THAT, "HE DONT HAVE TO" AND THAT IS WEAK…….HE DESERVES TO DIE……..

  • sami

    seriously u guys yes people make bad decisions in their life and they have to learn it themselve but damn u guys are cold hearted. seriously if u dont like a person u shouldnt write shit like this on anything its bull shit and mean seriously karma will get u guys for what u have done and for what u have said but u know what yes ur speaking ur mind but its still not right. lil wayne i hope ur ok and come out of it and that you dont do this again. may god be with u and ur family to get u through all of this.

    • Fraze

      I AGREE SAMI,

      MAYBE YOU ARE RIGHT AND MAYBE I WAS BEING A DOUCHE, BUT I HAVE PERSONALLY SEEN HOW HIS MUSIC HAS PERSONALLY RUINED THE MINDS OF MILLIONS OF YOUTH BECAUSE OF HIS LYRICS. FURTHERMORE, HE IS A FAKE, HE HAS NOT LIVED THE LIFE HE EXPRESSES IN THE SONGS HE PUTS OUT. HE CLAIMS TO BE A GANGSTER BLOOD OR WHATEVER HE SAYS AND YET NO REAL MEMBERS OF THAT GANG KNOW OF HIM OR EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE HIS CLAIMS TO BE A MEMBER. HE NEEDS TO STOP LIVING A LIE AND MAYBE PEOPLE WOULD HAVE A BETTER OPINION OF HIM IF HE WOULD CLEAN UP HIS ACT AND STOP PUTTING OUT THE MUSIC THAT HE PUTS OUT BECAUSE HE CAUSES PAIN WITH HIS LYRICS, JUST LAST MONTH, IT WAS IN THE NEWS THAT SOMEONE LISTENED TO A SONG BY WAYNE AND TURNED RIGHT AROUND AND MURDERED PEOPLE CITING "WAYNE MADE ME DO IT".

      HE IS NOT A POSITIVE ROLE MODEL AND SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HIMSELF. HE MAY HAVE A LOT OF MONEY BUT MONEY CANNOT BUY YOU HAPPINESS.

  • Kelly

    NO ONE should wish death upon a person FRAZE!!!!! You are what is wrong with this world. Karma is gonna have her way with your sorry rear end.

  • Monique
