Nas Recovering After Being Hospitalized for Vertigo

Life was not so good for Nas this week. The hip-hop superstar received medical attention after falling ill with vertigo.

The 39-year-old rapper was scheduled to perform on “Live! with Kelly and Michael” on Friday, but had to cancel his appearance. The hosts announced on-air that he was hospitalized with vertigo after his flight.

According to WebMD, vertigo is a balance disorder and results in lightheadedness and dizziness. Side effects include nausea and vomiting.

He is now out of the hospital and recovering. “Peace y’all. I’m out of the ER & doin alright. I’m on bed rest for a few. Apologies to everyone @ Live w/ Kelly & Michael. I’ll make it up,” tweeted Nas.

Earlier this week, Nas announced that he had begun work on his next album, the follow-up to the Grammy-nominated Life Is Good.
