Prior to Rodney, Fred the Godson took to Twitter to reveal he was receiving treatment after testing positive for COVID-19.
“I’m in here with this Covid-19 shit,” he tweeted, along with a picture of him wearing a ventilator. “Please keep me in y’all prayers! #GodIsGreat.”
Houston rappers Slim Thug and Scarface also contracted COVID-19. The latter rapper described his experience with it while speaking with fellow Geto Boys member Willie D, saying that he “felt like I was gonna die.”
“It started off with pneumonia in both of my lungs and three or four days later my kidneys failed,” Scarface explained. “Three or four days after that they tell me I can’t move, I’m quarantined…I gotta wait until this subsides so I can see what’s going on with my kidneys now.”
