Rising hip-hop star Chance The Rapper has been hospitalized and canceled his Coachella set scheduled for today.

Writing on his Facebook page, the Chicago rapper's management says:

On behalf of Chance and our entire team- We sincerely regret to have to cancel our 2nd weekend at coachella. Chance fell ill on Friday night & was admitted to the hospital today- Doctors and family are with him & he is expected to make a full recovery. Thank you for the prayers and support during this time, Chance, the CTR team and family deeply appreciate it.


Last weekend, Chance was joined onstage by a floppy-hat wearing Justin Bieber, one of the festival's most meme-worthy moments.We don't want to speculate on what's wrong with Chance, but if you're out in the desert, drink plenty of water and keep control of your controlled substance intake.
