Los Angeles, CA – Nick Cannon made good on his promise to be out of the hospital by New Year’s as he posted on Instagram today (December 29) that he has been released.

The rapper/comedian got right back to work as he shared a short clip of himself in the studio declaring Bible verses and Cam’ron’s classic line from Paid in Full.

Cannon was hospitalized earlier this month for treatment for complications from lupus and spent Christmas there. The entertainer, who released The Gospel of Ike Turn Up: My Side of the Story mixtape in November, revealed in 2012 that he was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease.
