Ever since the summer and the release of his chart topping album, and return to form, Life Is Good, Nas has continued his relentless work.  He’s already in the studio recording his next LP, and continues to tour to promote his last album saying he’s “in a great zone” musically and has no intentions of slowing down.   Unfortunately Esco will be sidelined temporarily as he is on bed rest after being admitted and released from a hospital emergency room.

Details are murky, but the Queensbridge rapper was slated to perform on the daytime talkshow LIVE With Kelly & Michael, hosted by Kelly Ripa, and former NFL player Michael Strahan, and Nasir was forced to cancel. 

He took to Twitter to let fans know what happened and that he is alright, “Peace ya’ll.  I’m out of the ER & doin alright.  I’m on bed rest for a few.  Apologies to everyone @Live w/ Kelly & Michael.  I’ll make it up.” 

The good news is that the legendary emcee has been discharged from ER so hopefully this is nothing serious.  We will update you as details come in. 

[Update: Nas was hospitalized for symptoms of vertigo.]

Apparently, Nas was sent to the hospital because after his flight landed he was suffering from symptoms of vertigo which can lead to severe dizziness and nausea.
