American rapper Lil Wayne has left an Omaha hospital and intends to perform Saturday night (June 18) as scheduled, according to his publicist.
The 33-year-old New Orleans native was hospitalized after his private jet was forced by a medical emergency to land Monday (June 13) at Omaha’s Eppley Airfield in Nebraska.
He was later described in stable condition after suffering what his publicist says were two minor seizures.
Publicity director Derek Sherron of The Chamber Group said Wednesday that Lil Wayne, whose real name is Wayne Carter, was “all good.” The Grammy winner is booked into the Sprint Center for a Saturday night show with 2 Chainz.
On Tuesday (June 14), Lil Wayne took to Twitter to thank fans for their prayers as he recovers from a seizure he suffered Monday that prompted an emergency landing of his plane.
“thanx for all the prayers!! I love y’all,” Lil Wayne tweeted.

This was the fourth high-profile seizure Wayne has suffered in the past four years. InOctober 2012, Wayne suffered a seizure while mid-flight from Texas to California. The rapper suffered another confirmed seizure in March 2013. He admitted at the time that he suffers from epilepsy and is “prone to seizures.”
Reps for Lil Wayne confirmed the seizure late Monday and made a statement that the rapper is in recovery.
