OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A publicist says rapper Lil Wayne has left an Omaha hospital and intends to perform Saturday night as scheduled.

The 33-year-old New Orleans native was hospitalized after his private jet was forced by a medical emergency to land Monday at Omaha’s Eppley Airfield. He was later described in stable condition after suffering what his publicist says were two minor seizures.

Publicity director Derek Sherron of The Chamber Group said Wednesday that Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., was “all good.” The Grammy winner is booked into the Sprint Center for a Saturday night show with 2 Chainz.

In March 2013 Lil Wayne was hospitalized in Los Angeles for seizures. He told a Los Angeles radio station that he has epilepsy.

This story has been corrected to show Lil Wayne’s first name is Dwayne, not Wayne.
