After spending nearly a week in the Intensive Care Unit of Cedar-Sinai Hospital, a source close to rapper Lil Wayne says he has been released and is in recovery at home.

Sources told the AP that the rapper was treated for seizures, a condition for which he has been hospitalized in the past. TMZ speculated that the recent episode was induced by a drug overdose, and reported that his condition was so critical that the rapper's mother was called upon to make life support decisions.

A source verified Lil Wayne's release to TMZ as well; the outlet reported that "Wayne is feeling weak but he's a lot better. He plans on laying low until he makes a full recovery."
