Earlier on the same day, Bizarre sparked concerns among his fans and followers when he took to his Instagram Story to inform them about his health scare. Through the message, he asked for prayers while recovering in a hospital bed.
After the problem with his health issue has become clearer, many have sent prayers for his full recovery in the comment section of his Instagram post. "Damn, hope you get better fast my dawg," one of his followers wrote.
Another encouraged him, "You got this Bro." A third one commented, "prayers up big bro." A fourth user also sent well wishes, "Get well soon Bizarre, wish you a full recovery," while someone else advised him, "Damn. You gotta start to live more healthy. My guy."
Bizarre rose to fame as part of the hip-hop collective D12 (an initialism for the Dirty Dozen) from Detroit, Michigan, with its lineup of de facto leader also including Eminem, Proof, Mr. Porter, Kuniva and Swifty McVay. Since Eminem's hiatus and Proof's death away in 2006, the group became less active until Eminem confirmed in 2018 that D12 had officially disbanded.
Bizarre released his last studio album titled "Rufus" in 2019. In the same year, he opened up about his struggles with weight and how it impacts his health in an interview with HipHopDX. "I was always a little guy who had asthma all the way up until I was like maybe 14," he said at the time.
"Then I had a doctor had put me on steroids for the asthma. That kind of made me gain weight. But through my adult years, I've basically been through the same thing that you've been talking about up or down, you know what I'm saying?" he explained. "Doing good, lost 20 pounds. Then you relapse or give yourself a cheat day and your cheat day turns into three days and then two weeks. It's like an ongoing battle, you know what I'm saying?"
