Rapper Post Malone is thanking fans for their prayers now that his private jet that blew two tires taking off from a small New Jersey airport has landed safely in New York.

In a tweet after the landing, he also disses those who "wished death" on him while he was in the air.

The Gulfstream IV landed Tuesday at New York Stewart International Airport in Newburgh, about 70 miles (112 kilometers) north of New York City. Emergency responders were ready by the runway, and fans who had gathered clapped and cheered as the plane landed safely.

The jet was headed to London Luton Airport in Luton, England, from Teterboro Airport when the pilot realized after takeoff early Tuesday that the tires had blown. It initially was diverted to Massachusetts.

Post Malone is set to perform at the Reading and Leeds Festival in England over the weekend.
