Gunna is officially out of the hospital, and from the looks of things, he’s doing pretty well—and he’s got some news about new music.

Jumping onto Instagram Live yesterday (July 8), the Atlanta artist revealed that, after he was hospitalized earlier this week, he’d been given a clean bill of health. He also shared that the sickness that led to his hospitalization was pneumonia.

“I feel better. I’m out of the hospital,” Gunna said. “I had fucking pneumonia really really bad. Health is wealth. Everybody take care of your body.”

“I don’t want people to think that I’m somewhere in a hospital, fucked up, down,” he continued before giving an update on new music he’s got in the stash. “I’m up. Album on the way. On my momma. That’s on your momma.”

In the video, Gunna is cruising in the backseat of a Maybach. Kicking back, he mentions that he’s watching Belly. In subsequent posts to his Instagram story, he shared an image of flowers he presumably received while he was in the hospital. “The love don’t stop & the prayers don’t go unnoticed,” he wrote in some overlain text.

Fans across the internet worried about Gunna after he revealed that he was in the hospital. At the time, he didn’t disclose a reason for the hospitalization, but he did give fans a peek at how he was living in the hospital bed. At one point, he shared video of Young Thug coming to give him a visit. Thugger also came with Audemars Piguet watches as a gift.

“Not one, not two, not three, but four,” he said in a video on his Instagram Story. In the overlain text from the story, he wrote, “My twin ain’t never late. I think I’m feeling better already.”
