Young Money's Drake appears to be back on his feet after suffering from a stomach flu a few days ago, resuming his Club Paradise tour run in Arizona last night (March 4).

According to reports, Drizzy took Saturday off to receive treatment for his illness and made his return the following night in Tucson, AZ.

Drake was able to resume his Club Paradise tour last night after a stomach bug forced the Young Money rapper to cancel an appearance on Friday. Drizzy barely made it through a show at the University of Texas in Arlington, but refused to cancel the gig after falling ill earlier on in the week. However, the Take Care star had to skip a PA at Club Zouk later that night, tweeting: "Seeing a doctor about this stomach flu... UTA gave me life! Sorry to all my family at Club Zouk that I won't be seeing tonight. Be back soon." Drake recovered in time to rejoin Kendrick Lamar and A$AP Rock on the tour at the Tucson Arena in Tuscon, Arizona last night. Perhaps Drizzy's new workout regime is a little too intensive?

He also hopped on Twitter to announce the continuation of his Club Paradise Tour.

"Tucson...Welcome to Club Paradise.," he tweeted Sunday (March 4). (Drake's Twitter)

Reports of the Canadian-bred rapper's stomach flu hit the Internet last week.

The rapper struggled through a show in Texas after coming down with the stomach flu. The Best I Ever Had star, who is currently on tour in the U.S., began feeling ill this week, but refused to cancel a gig at The University of Texas (UTA) in Arlington. Drake made it through the show, but canceled a subsequent appearance at the Club Zouk venue in Dallas later that night. (ABC 4)

Following Friday's show, Drizzy made it known he would seek medical attention.

"Seeing a doctor about this stomach flu...UTA gave me life! Sorry to all my family at Club Zouk that I won't be seeing tonight. Be back soon.," he tweeted Friday (March 2). (Drake's Twitter)
