Scarface Reveals Coronavirus Diagnosis

  /  03.26.2020

Scarface is the latest rapper to test positive for coronavirus.

The Houston rap legend revealed on Wednesday evening that he has been diagnosed with COVID-19. During an interview with his Geto Boys bandmate Willie D, Scarface explained that it started out with an “itch in his throat” before he experienced a fever. Things quickly escalated and he was taken to the emergency room and put on antibiotics.

“It started off with pneumonia in both of my lungs and three or four days later my kidneys failed,” said the 49-year-old rapper.

He has also experienced vomiting and shortness of breath and has been quarantined. “This whole three weeks has been an ordeal. It’s the craziest shit I’ve ever done and seen in my life,” he said. “I’ve been to the point where I felt I was gonna die, bro.”

He had been quarantined in his house prior to the diagnosis. “I haven’t been nowhere. I’ve been in my house,” he said.

Scarface also shut down conspiracy theories that celebrities are being paid to say they have the virus. “People are thinking that shit is a game. You don’t want to play with this,” he warned.

Earlier this week, another Houston rapper, Slim Thug, revealed that he had coronavirus. He hasn’t experienced as serious symptoms as Scarface, but cautioned others to stay safe. “I feel like I’m good, but y’all better take it serious. It’s real out here,” he said.

Other celebrities have also been diagnosed with COVID-19 including Idris Elba, Tom Hanks, and Prince Charles.
