Hell Razah Hospitalized After Emergency Surgery, In Recovery

Exclusive: The Sunz of Man member's family and label tells DX about Tuesday's emergency that has the Brooklyn veteran recovering with a new album just completed.

Despite speculated reports, family members, through Nature Sounds Records, confirmed to HipHopDX this afternoon that veteran Brooklyn emcee Hell Razah is presently recovering from an undisclosed emergency surgery. The onetime Sunz of Man member was rushed to a hospital Tuesday (April 6) and underwent surgery. With respect to the situation and developments, Razah's family has not provided further details at this time.

What the family can confirm however, is that the circumstances typically require several months of healing. Therefore, earlier speculations about Razah's abilities and present condition remain premature. The results of this recovery are unknown, but family, friends and fans are asked to pray for a full and expedient recovery. Family has labeled this week's circumstances to Hell Razah as a "serious emergency."

Additionally, Nature Sounds said that the 33 year-old born Chron Smith had recently turned in his Heaven Razah album. Razah's sophomore solo album, a sequel to the acclaimed 2007 release Renaisance Child, is set to feature R.A. The Rugged Man and Timbo King with production from Ayatollah and Havoc. Heaven Razah will feature the Ayatollah-produced single "Kids In The Street."

Having released several collaborative albums since Sunz of Man, Razah was believed to be also finishing a second T.H.U.G. Angels album with former Sunz partner Shabazz the Disciple as well.

As a solo artist, Hell Razah has appeared on albums from various Wu-Tang Clan members including GZA, Ol' Dirty Bastard, Method Man and U-God.

You are one of the most slept on talents in hiphop and i really hope you fully recover and and get to grind hard with your new projects p.s. i don't know why you are talking about health insurance here i am pretty sure he has insurance! Keep it respectful up in here.

      The health insurance comment wasn't intended to be disrespectful. Union workers at everyday jobs are afforded health insureance, yet most record labels, major or independant, don't give their artists the same benefit. It's the same situation that arose when Grym Reaper AKA Too Poetic was stricken with colon cancer, also a tragedy that could've been averted and/or staved off if he were given health insurance. Sure this situation is a bit different, but still, that was the point of the previous comment.

  • big braveheart

    Take car son and hope you get well soon. Wuuuuuu!

  • I_Am_Beast

    It's always the good ones man, this shit is getting sad. I wish the God a speedy recovery, and I'll cop 2 copies of Heaven Razah when it drops. Please, Nature Sounds, don't delay the album. I realize he can't tour to support it, but if we as fans buy this album in resounding numbers, maybe months down the line when he's recovered enough it'll show Razah that we care and don't want to lose another talented artist. I'll check for updates, and my thoughts and well-wishes go to Razah, his family, Shabazz and anyone else close to the God...PEACE.
