Lil Wayne was reportedly hospitalised after suffering from a seizure yesterday (October 25).

The rapper's private jet was forced to make an emergency landing in Texas after he suffered "seizure-like symptoms," according to TMZ.

He was then reportedly taken to hospital, where he was kept for several hour before being released in the early evening. A source told TMZ that he is now "doing better".

The incident is similar to that of hip-hop mogul Rick Ross, who recovered after suffering from two seizures in one day on a flight.

Earlier this month, Lil Wayne revealed that he has recorded 90 tracks with Dr. Dre, all unheard by the public.

The Young Money rapper, who is responsible for the careers of both Drake and Nicki Minaj, said: "I've always worked with Dre. I'm not sure if you guys know how Dre works, Dre always sends you a song, so I done, probably did like 90 songs for Dre. You just never know which one he gonna put out."

Lil Wayne will release his new solo album, 'I Am Not A Human Being II' in December.
