Lil Wayne's management team says the rapper is on "mandated rest" after a severe migraine and dehydration caused him to be hospitalized.

In a statement released Friday, the Blueprint Group says Lil Wayne was released from the hospital treatment and will return to work soon. They added that the New Orleans-based rapper appreciates his fans' support and love.

No further details were released.

The 30-year-old multiplatinum performer is working on a follow up to his last album, 2011's "Tha Carter IV."
