Scarface has offered an update on his health condition following news of his coronavirus diagnosis back in March.
During a video interview with Fox 26 Houston last week, the veteran rapper shared that his lungs have recovered since he first tested positive for the virus three months ago, but his kidneys have not.
“Covid attacked my lungs first, and then it attacked my kidneys and knocked them out,” he began. “I got full lung recovery, but my kidneys never came back.”
He also emphasized how coronavirus can effect your organs and is extremely deadly .
“It’s serious, you could be going on with your life and then that very next moment you could lose everything,” Scarface said. “Kidney function, liver function, lung function, heart function—you can actually die from the Covid, it’s crazy. It can actually kill you.”
Despite the toll the virus has taken on his body, he remains optimistic. “I’m still a little weak,” he said. “I don’t have a lot of strength in my legs yet, I still haven’t got full taste back and sense of smell yet. But I am glad to be alive.”
The Houston-bred rapper first announced his positive coronavirus status on March 26. At that time, Scarface recounted dealing with this illness for nearly a month. His diagnosis came after fellow Houston rapper Slim Thug also announced he had tested positive.
In the weeks following others like DJ Jazzy Jeff , Meek Mill and Styles P also revealed they had coronavirus related illnesses that were near fatal.
Across the nation, many states have re-opened but are also seeing a rise in cases. 10 states in particular hit a record high for Covid cases: Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina and Texas.
Experst say Second-wave could be on the way. Across the country, more than 2.1 million people have been infected with coronavirus, and more than 117,000 have died.
