*Down in Houston, rapper Slim Thug has told his 1.1 million fans via Instagram that he has come down with the novel coronavirus. Yes, the 39-yr-old has tested positive.
In a video posted Tuesday, Slim, whose real name is Stayve Thomas, explained he may have gotten the virus while out getting something to eat. He claims he took precaution while out in the public.
“No games being played,” Slim Thug opened the video. “As careful as I’ve been self-quarantined and staying home, I might have gotten something to eat or something or did some stuff like that – simple stuff like that, nothing crazy – stayed in my truck, had masks, gloves, everything on. And my test came back positive.”
The rapper said he is in self-quarantine at home.

As of this posting, Thug said he feels good but just days before, he had a slight fever and a cough.
Still, he urged his followers to gravity of the diagnosis.
“Take it seriously. It’s real out here,” he concluded.
On the other hand, sorry to say it, but there are those who aren’t quite buying Slim’s story, completely.
