The hip-hop star's manager David Stromberg posted a picture of the musician asleep in a hospital bed, with the simple caption: "Sunday".

When Scott's fans expressed concern over his wellbeing, Stromberg reassured them, by writing in the comments: "He's fine. he was just dehydrated."

It comes after an incredibly busy few months for the musician, whose record Birds In The Trap Sing MCKnight debuted at the top of the U.S. Billboard 200 chart earlier this month (Sep16), making it the fifth Apple/iTunes exclusive to hit number one this year (16). It follows in the successful footsteps of Frank Ocean's Blonde, DJ Khaled’s Major Key, Drake’s Views And Future’s EVOL.

Scott's achievement comes a year after he stormed into the U.S. charts last September (15) with the release of his debut album Rodeo, which peaked at number three on the Billboard 200.

Neither Scott nor Stromberg have shared an update on the rapper's condition, but he is due to be flying to Australia to perform at the Listen Out festival on 24 and 25 September (16) and 1 October, as well as headlining shows in Melbourne and Sydney on 27 and 28 September (16) respectively.
