West Coast rapper Mack 10 is currently recovering in a Los Angeles hospital after undergoing stomach surgery on Monday (April 11).

The former Ice Cube-affiliate, born Dedrick Rolison, was admitted to the hospital after experiencing acute abdominal pains last week. He was diagnosed with diverticulitis, a swelling of the intestines. If left untreated, the condition can cause inflammation or abscessing due to stool spilling from the colon into the abdomen.

According to Mack 10’s publicist, surgeons were forced to operate on his stomach, and “six inches of the problem area in his stomach were removed,” in an effort to relieve his discomfort. The operation has been hailed a success, and the 39-year-old Westside Connection founder is expected to make a full recovery, remaining under doctor’s care for 10 days before he is released to continue his convalescence at home.

“We are all very glad that the worst is over,” Mack’s publicist revealed. “Now it’s time for healing. His colleagues, the Hoo Bangin’ team and the entire artist roster wish Mack 10 a quick recovery. We are confident that he will be back to business very, very soon.”

Meanwhile, Mack 10’s collaboration album with fellow L.A. rapper Glasses Malone, ‘Money Music,’ was released on Tuesday (April 12) on Mack’s Hoo Bangin’ Records label.
