The hip-hop star was admitted to a Houston, Texas hospital on 30 June (15) for undisclosed reasons.

A message from the rapper's Geto Boys bandmate, Willie D, reads, "I am not at liberty to speak on (Scarface's) condition, and wouldn't even if I was, as it is a private matter, but I will say that he is in good spirits, and sends his love to all who have supported him throughout his career, and personal life.

"Although I'm his bandmate, I'm also a Scarface fan, so I know it's hard for you guys not having details, but I will try to keep you updated as much as I can without invading his privacy. Thanks and say a prayer for my homey!"

A representative for the group tells the rapper is now resting at home.

The 44 year old was hospitalised in the midst of the newly-reunited group's Office Space Tour.
