Singleton is known for films 1991’s “Boyz n the Hood,” which earned him Oscar nomination for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. He was the youngest filmmaker to be nominated in those categories. He was also the first African American to be nominated for Best Director.

The 51-year-old has also directed episodes of “The People vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story,” “Empire,” and “Billions.”

We hope he gets better soon.
