Lil Wayne is out of the hospital, according to his Young Money associate Mack Maine.

Mack Maine told his Twitter followers on Monday night that the multiplatinum rapper had left Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, where he had been hospitalized since last week.

Mack Maine tweeted his thanks to the hospital and said Lil Wayne had officially been released and was headed home. He added: "God is great."

On Friday, Lil Wayne tweeted: "I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love."

Lil Wayne -- who has a history of seizures -- was hospitalized last week. A person close to his camp who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation told The Associated Press that a seizure was the cause of his hospitalization.

The rapper has had a lot of success in the music world, winning best rap album for "Tha Carter III" at the 2008 Grammy Awards; he scored three more Grammys the following year.

In September, Lil Wayne topped Elvis Presley's record as the male with the most entries on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.
