The rapper, 30, was hospitalized on Oct. 25 after falling ill aboard his private jet. Though reports initially claimed that the Young Money boss had suffered a seizure-like incident, it now appears he had a severe migraine and dehydration.

The hip hop star -- who's currently busy preparing for the December release of his new album, I Am Not a Human Being II -- was treated for his ailments in Texas, where his plane made its emergency landing Thursday afternoon. He was discharged a short time later.
