Chance The Rapper was forced to cancel his charity event Monday night (May 9), after being hospitalized due to “some sort of illness.” However, his team do not specify what put him in the hospital.

The Chicago rapper was slated to perform at New York’s Terminal 5 for the “Night For NYC” event, which was hosted by the Robin Hood organization to raise money in the fight against poverty. After the unforeseen incident, the organization announced on Twitter that artists Anderson .Paak, Mark Ronson and Joey Bada$$ will be performing in place of Chance.

This isn't the first time the rapper has canceled a performance. In 2014, he was forced to cancel his Coachella set after falling ill and being sent to the hospital. Joey extended his well wishes to Chance by saying:

Chance later responded on Twitter that he came down with pneumonia and appreciates “the great men” for filling in for his absence.

Rest up Chance.
