In a statement shared with TMZ, the Chicago artist wrote, "First and foremost, I would like to thank God and the incredible team of doctors and nurses at Northwestern Memorial Hospital for saving my life. I will be forever grateful."
He continued: "I would also like to thank my family and friends for all their prayers and well wishes. I'm overwhelmed with gratitude.
