Months after testing positive for COVID-19, Scarface tweeted, “I need a kidney y’all any volunteers? B+ blood type.”
Back in March, Scarface told fellow Geto Boys member Willie D that he tested positive for the coronavirus and described his symptoms.
“This whole three weeks has been an ordeal, Will,” Scarface said. “It’s the craziest s*** I’ve ever done and seen in my life. Like I’ve been to the point where I just felt like I was gonna die, bro. I threw up so much until it was just like hot sauce. Like your gases and s*** in your stomach, yo acids, it’s hot. I didn’t have no food in my stomach, man. It was just coming up like bile, bro. I couldn’t breathe, Will.”
Since he caught the virus, the rapper has described the various ways in which his health has been affected.
“COVID attacked my lungs first, and then it attacked my kidneys and knocked them out,” he said in June. “I got full lung recovery, but my kidneys never came back…I’m still a little weak. I don’t have a lot of strength in my legs yet. I still haven’t got full taste back and sense of smell yet. But, I am glad to be alive.”
After never having kidney problems prior to his coronavirus diagnosis, Scarface has had to do dialysis four times a week, three hours a day, and has changed his diet.
