Keeping up with the speculation and rumors about Lil Wayne’s health has almost become a full-time job.

Thankfully, the rapper has finally surfaced in a video assuring  fans that he’s more than good.

Wayne issued a quick video Friday morning to finally squash the chatter about his recent hospitalization.

“I swear to God I felt that love when I was laid up in that … hospital bed. I want ya’ll to know I’m good … more than good.”

The rapper, clad in a red hooded sweat shirt and clutching a lollipop, then plugged his “bomb” album that arrives Tuesday and revealed the 2013 edition of his America’s Most Wanted Music Festival. He was joined by friend and fellow multi-platinum emcee T.I., who will also perform on the summer tour that launches in July.

Dates for the tour, which also includes Future and other as-yet-announced special guests, will be announced Monday.

Wayne released the video to TMZ -- time stamp included -- which should come as no surprise. The celebrity gossip site broke the news last week that the rapper was hospitalized at  Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Los Angeles, recovering from a seizure. It was the beginning of a firestorm of rumors surrounding Wayne's condition.

Whatever happened last week, Weezy rebounded enough to focus on promoting his upcoming album, “I Am Not a Human Being II." On Thursday, he issued a new single, "Trippy," that brags about "Weed, bills and that drink." Now, how's that for a speedy recovery?

Oh, and he told the naysayers to kiss his fist.

We’d embed the video here but it's rife with expletives, so head on over to TMZ to watch.
