Anthony Henderson, known as Krayzie Bone of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, is in the hospital, the rap group’s manager Bobby Dee confirmed to the Los Angeles Times on Monday.

Dee did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

According to the outlet, Dee did not state why the 50-year-old was hospitalized. However, AllHipHop reported on Sunday that Krayzie Bone checked himself into a hospital in Los Angeles on Friday after he started coughing up blood.

Doctors reportedly detected in the musician's CAT scan a bleeding artery in one of his lungs. As a result, he was immediately operated on and placed on a ventilator as of Sunday, per AllHipHop.

TMZ reported Monday that Krayzie Bone was placed in an induced coma to “help [with] the healing process,” as the artery is still bleeding.

Sources also reportedly told the outlet that the Cleveland native's medical team plans to go into surgery again to repair his blood vessel.
