Akrobatik Reportedly In Stable Condition After Heart Attack

According to close associates, the Boston rapper suffered a heart attack, had open heart surgery and is now recovering.

Boston emcee Akrobatik reportedly suffered a heart attack last night. According to close associates Mr. Lif and Edo.G, he went into open heart surgery earlier today and is in stable condition following the procedure.

News of Akro's hospitalization first broke on Twitter, where there were rumors of a medically-induced coma. Several of his aforementioned peers confirmed a heart attack, but explained that he was not in a coma.

Akrobatik has been a fixture in the Boston hip-hop scene for over a decade. He most recently released his second studio LP Absolute Value in 2008, and appears each morning on JAM’N 94.5’s morning show for his daily “Sports Wrap-Up.”

    glad the brother is better, but why the heart attack at such a young age? folks need to switch up their diet and lifestyle because too many are falling off due to unsustainable practices. not to say that akrobatik is living a rugged and/or typical life (i.e. eating a s.a.d/standard "american" diet), but good folks like akrobatik need to be around for years to come.

      Stress don't do you no good either homie. Baby mama drama and papes will fuck you up. I started having heart irregs when I was 25. They worked me up, went into my heart with a camera and the whole nine. I put down the cancer sticks and all that, put on some Darkman X, and started running 10 miles a day.

      Truth be told. Constant fast food, booze, bud, and cigarettes can wipe you the fuck out!

      Thats the problem kenny. most of us only ate processed shit out of a box or in a wrapper our whole lives. I had to turn that around to when I was 20. I decided I wasn't gonna fall victim to this shit, cause for real a lot of it we were never meant to eat. I haven't had fast food more than 10 times in the last 7 years.
