*Geto Boys rapper Scarface has revealed he’s on dialysis due to kidney failure, a result of complications from COVID-19.
The rapper spoke about his battle in a Zoom chat with group member Willie D that was uploaded to YouTube last week.
Showing Willie D his dialysis port, he said, “That’s my new lifeline.”
“I gotta change my entire diet, I gotta do dialysis four days a week, three hours a day. That’s taking all my blood out, cleaning it and putting it back in my body,” explained Scarface, who says he did not have any kidney issues before testing positive for COVID-19.
Describing his coronavirus symptoms, he said: “I couldn’t keep food down, I couldn’t get comfortable, I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t stay woke, I could not breathe. It was the worst time of my life.” He also lost “probably 30 pounds.”
“Hanging on that string of death makes you really appreciate life,” Scarface said. “I was inches away from death.”
