Hours after news broke of Lil Wayne’s hospitalization and a tweet supposedly written by the rapper that trumped all conflicting reports of his condition, Young Money Entertainment has issued a statement.

“Lil Wayne is certainly OK at this moment and appreciates everyone’s prayers and support, just as he posted via Twitter,” a Young Money publicist confirmed to Celebuzz Friday night.

CNN reports that Drake was spotted visiting his label mate at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in L.A. late Friday night, along with an “entourage” of the artist’s friends. The group reportedly pulled up chairs near Lil Wayne’s room and set up a vigil.

Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., made huge headlines Friday afternoon after TMZ reported that he was in “critical condition” after suffering a seizure.

Less than one hour later, Cash Money president Mack Maine shot down some of TMZ’s claims, and added that, “Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game.”

As tracked by CB!, Birdman re-tweeted the statement, “Shame on you @TMZ anything to make a couple $$$$$” in the next hour.

Then minutes later, Lil Wayne himself took to Twitter to write, “I’m good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love,” which has since been re-tweeted more than 166,000 times.
