John Singleton, whose Boyz n the Hood remains one of the definitive movies of the 1990s, may have suffered a stroke and is hospitalized.

Social media has erupted with shout-outs and prayers for the director, who is allegedly at Cedars Sinai. His current condition is unknown.

Singleton was nominated for two Oscars – Best Director and Best Original Screenplay – for Boyz n the Hood, becoming the youngest filmmaker to be nominated in those categories.

He also directed Michael Jackson’s video for “Remember The Time.” His other credits include Rosewood, Shaft, 2 Fast 2 Furious, and Four Brothers.
