"King Louie and his family would like to thank everyone for their prayers and support during this unfortunate time," his management said in an emailed statement to NBC Chicago. "He wants his fans, friends and family to know that he is alive and recovering and is thankful for the support."

Meanwhile, King Louie had one prestigious figure visit him at the hospital. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan met with King L and a photo was captured for posterity.

"I wanna send thanks to everyone for their prayers & support! A special thank you to The Honorable Minister Farrakhan for the blessings & prayers," wrote King L on his Instagram account.
