During his Lollapalooza music festival, rapper Lil Durk, 29, was hit in the face by pyrotechnics. Lil Durk has told fans he plans to "take a break" from music to "focus on his health" after being left wounded during his performance at the Chicago festival on July 30, Saturday.

The video, circulated online, showed the hitmaker performing 'Back In Blood' when he accidentally walked into a pyrotechnic cannon and took two explosives of smoke in his face.

The song was stopped as Durk stumbled backward with his T-shirt covering his face while crew members rushed to his aide, but he ultimately decided to continue with the performance.

Following a brief pause, he could be heard saying: "F*** it, no more smoke, let's do it." And now, the 'Backdoor' hitmaker has shared an image of himself sitting on a bed in a hospital, with a massive patch over his eye.

He captioned the Instagram post, "Due to the incident that happened at Lollapalooza in Chicago on stage, I'm a take a break and focus on my health.

I finished my performance yesterday for my fans. Appreciate y'all." No official information has yet been made regarding whether Durk plans to delay his upcoming performances. He's scheduled to perform in Boston on August 13 before kicking off his '7220 Deluxe tour in September.

The weekend before Lollapalooza, Durk performed at the Rolling Loud festival. He stunned the Miami crowd when he brought Kanye West out to perform with him, days after the 'Stronger' hitmaker - who has legally changed his name to Ye, had pulled out of headlining the Miami event.

The 'Rain' rapper stepped out with black paint on his face and performed 'Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1' from his 'Life of Pablo' album as fans ran from the other stages to try and catch a glance of the star.
