Details about rapper Lil Wayne's illness remain vague after he was removed this week from the intensive care unit of a Los Angeles hospital.

Lil Wayne, 30, whose real name is Wayne Michael Carter, was reported to be in a stabilized condition at Cedar- Sinai Hospital , eating and walking on own, with the expectation of being released soon.

Lil Wayne, also known as "Weezy," thanked fans for their concern after reports that he'd suffered multiple seizures in recent weeks. An entertainment website had also reported that he had been near death and in a medically-induced coma.

Speculation had surfaced that the rapper's latest round of seizures were the result of a "sizzurp" binge and subsequent codeine overdose.
