This whole three weeks has been an ordeal. It’s the craziest sh*t I’ve ever seen in my life. I’ve been to the point where I felt like I was gonna die.
I threw up so much until it was like hot sauce, your gases and acids in your stomach is hot, I had no food in my stomach, it was just coming up like bile,’ he recalled. ‘I couldn’t breathe.
It started off with pneumonia in both of my lungs, three or four days later my kidneys fail, three or four days after they tell me I can’t move, I’m quarantined. They tell me I can’t go and see my kids.
The rapper urged people to take the pandemic seriously, saying “I don’t see how nobody can even want to play them games, I don’t want to have fun that bad, where it could take my life.”
He further revealed that he is still in quarantine at his house, but believes he has finally recovered from the virus. With the end in sight after such an excruciating experience, he joked “I’m finna go fucking live now, man! Like skydiving and shit, I’m gonna go do that. We’ll go on a safari trip.”
