After reports spread online this weekend claiming Fabolous was involved in a possible car accident, the rapper has clarified the rumors and said he was, indeed, rushed to a hospital for medical attention.

Writing via Twitter, F-a-b-o explained what went down from his own account.

"Wow! I'm ok everyone..thanks 4 the concern. I was not in a car accident, but I think i know where it started.. Let me explain," he wrote Sunday (September 27) afternoon. "I was drivin yesterday morning & started feeling very sick & felt like I was gon pass out while driving.. I veered off 2 da side of the road Had a ambulance called and they picked me up from the side of the road.. Maybe that's where the car accident confusion came from..Believed I was poisoned so I checked in & was given medical treatment..a lil sedated so I didn't tweet but was released 2 go late last nite Again thanks 4 ur concern & prayers.. I'm ok, No car accident, jus a lil sick.. Imma shake it off and GO IN on somebody later LOL!! (Pause) OK, Im feelin much better.. But i will play sick for a big booty, B/C cup nurse...

Fabolous recently kicked-off his five-city Classic Remix Concert Series last month with an action packed New York City show filled with throwback and new song performances.

Fabolous' one-night New York City showcase was a night to remember. From a live band consisting of a guitar player, guy on the keyboard, drums and Fab's sidekick Paul Cain serving as a lyrical hype man, the rapper switched back-and-forth from slow cuts like "Into You" and "Baby Don't Go" to more stellar records for the fellas a la "Keepin' It Gangsta" and "Breathe." Even though kids who purchased their pairs of Reeboks (which Fab rocked with his army fatigue shorts) may have gone with their parents, Fab showed no concerns with his verbal messages throughout the night: "New York City, what the f*ck is up man," he asked the screaming crowd during his intro. "How y'all feel this evening? I don't know what y'all think I came here to do, but I'ma do it." (SOHH On The Scene)

His Reebok deal made headlines after he announced it in early August.

Fabolous, in partnership with Cornerstone Promotion and Foot Locker, will kick-off the series as the first one hundred fans in each city will be able to "buy a pair, get a pair" -- receiving a pair of tickets to a first-of-its-kind, exclusive, intimate Fabolous performance. Fabolous will personally meet with fans at Foot Locker locations throughout the US to promote Reebok's Classic Remix footwear collection and the Classic Remix Concert Series. Cities include, New York City, New York (August 24, 2009), New Orleans, Louisiana (August 26, 2009), Miami, Florida (August 28, 2009), Houston, Texas (September 1, 2009), and Atlanta, Georgia (September 3, 2009).
