Lil Wayne has left hospital but he's still not all better following his seizure last week

Lil Wayne has been released from hospital.

The No Worries hitmaker has been discharged from California's Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's intensive care unit (ICU), where he was treated for six days after suffering a seizure.

Insiders told website TMZ that the rapper - whose real name is Dwayne Carter - was feeling "weak" but a lot better and is planning to "lay low" until he is fully recovered.

Wayne's close friend, Young Money president Mack Maine, later confirmed the news on twitter.

He wrote: "Thanks to Cedar Sinai for everything!!! @LilTunechi has been officially been released and is headed home....God is great".

And Cash Money CEO Birdman added: "God son just release frm hospital.thanks 4 all tha luv.YMCMB.Richgang"

News of Wayne's release from hospital came hours after Birdman told Hot 97's Angie Martinez Show that reports his pal had suffered "multiple" seizures and had briefly left hospital last week were untrue.

He also dismissed reports Wayne's illness wasn't due to drug abuse, believing it to be a result of working too hard.

He said: "To me, it's just his work ethic. It's just how he puts in and what he believes in and how hard he work, how much dedication he gives to music and his fans and what he tryin' to accomplish in life. It had nothing to do with drugs. He just needs to get some rest, relax, take it one day at a time."
