News of rapper's release came a day after his 18-year-old daughter Reginae Carter took to Twitter to update fans on her father's health woes. Thanks for the concerns.

TMZ reported Wayne's team tried to get him discharged Sunday in order to make a midnight performance with Rae Sremmurd in Las Vegas, but his doctors advised against it.

Lil Wayne was recently hospitalized in Chicago after suffering from seizures over the weekend. "You guys are awesome", she wrote, adding, "Oh yeah ... and don't believe everything you hear".

The seizures that resulted in the hospital stay Sunday were reportedly caused by Wayne's nonstop schedule, during which the rapper had recently gotten "no sleep". A Chicago Fire Department spokesperson confirmed he had been released by Monday morning. A hospital representative, however, said that Wayne was no longer in the hospital in the morning of September 4 as reflected in the hospital patient records. "It might not be the last time we see Lil Wayne have a seizure".

As previously mentioned, Lil Wayne is still recovering, but he's doing much better.

The show continued, however, with T.I. taking Wayne's place and performing with DJ Franzen. The rapper suffers from epilepsy, and in an interview in 2013 with the L.A. radio station Power 106, he said, "This isn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure". I have had a bunch of seizures, you just never hear about them.

"Oh really? Damn", Bieber said when told about Lil Wayne's situation.
