Former Roc-A-Fella rapper Young Chris was rushed to the hospital on Wednesday night (Dec. 22) after suffering from a seizure during a performance in New York City.

The Philly rapper, who is one half of the duo Young Gunz, was in the middle of a performance at S.O.B.’s nightclub in Manhattan’s West Village, when he suffered from a sudden seizure. The unconscious rapper was admitted to a nearby hospital, where he was treated and eventually released. He took to Twitter early Thursday morning to let fans know that he was in good shape. “Thank you for all the prayers!!!!!” he wrote. “I’m good.”

The performance was a part of Hot 97 and Kodak’s popular ‘Who’s Next’ concert series.
