Rapper Lil Wayne is recovering in a Los Angeles hospital following multiple seizures he reportedly experienced on March 15.

Reports claimed that the 30-year-old was in critical condition, according to E! News, from a medically induced coma and not breathing on his own. He took to Twitter to reassure his over 10 million followers "I'm good everybody. Tnx for the prayers and love" and Mack Maine, president of Lil Wayne's Young Money label, denied the seriousness of the hospital visit.

"Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game...thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you all soon. #love," Maine tweeted. "Don't believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe...that's false!"

The rapper's exact medical condition remains unclear to the public and his publicist, Kia Selby, told CNN, "Lil Wayne is doing well."

Drake, Birdman and Nicki Minaj were among the celebrities that visited Lil Wayne in the hospital over the weekend, according to BET. Those who paid a visit included Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul and R&B singer Usher. Minaj reportedly "broke down" crying upon seeing Lil Wayne.

She cried because she didn't want to see him in the hospital with s*** in his arms and doctors around," a source said. "But all in all, she had a good visit with him and Wayne seems cool."

Usher even made a shout-out to Lil Wayne during a March 16 performance at SXSW. He asked the audience to keep the singer in their thoughts. 

"One of my fellow artists, good friend, Lil Wayne is going through a real hard time right now, y'all. And I just want to send a lot of positive attitude about his state," Usher said on stage. "And a lot of positive energy out there right now. Can you guys make some noise for Lil Wayne one time? You know it's ultimately about positive energy. You believe in that? So one time make some noise."
