AceShowbiz - Rapper Scarface has become the latest musician to test positive for the coronavirus.
The Geto Boys star opened up about his diagnosis on Thursday, March 26 during a livestream chat with bandmate Willie D, explaining he has been sick for weeks.
Scarface, real name Brad Terrence Jordan, was twice admitted to the hospital before he tested positive on Wednesday, and now reveals he was given an intravenous drip and antibiotics and then discharged, before returning to emergency care days later.
"It started off with pneumonia in both of my lungs and three or four days later my kidneys failed," he told Willie D. "I've been to the point where I felt I was gonna die."
The rap star used the chat to warn fans to take health guidelines very seriously: "It's not fake," he said. "I'm not all the way out (of) the woods yet. People out there thinking this s**t is a game; it ain't no joke (sic)."
Scarface joins Slim Thug, Bon Jovi's David Bryan, Placido Domingo, and Jackson Browne among the musicians who have tested positive for COVID-19.
