Although no rappers have revealed they’ve tested positive for COVID-19, 21 Savage has a strong inclination he may be affected.
The Savage Gang leader has been updating his nearly 11-million strong Instagram following with his deteriorating health condition over the past few days.
“I been breaking down my symptoms I been feeling and shit,” he explained on his Instagram story. “Everybody keep talking ’bout it sound like coronavirus. So I say, ‘OK, say less.’ Where could I have received this coronavirus from? So I go to thinking about my schedule. OK, where I went? OK, we went to the club the other night.”
The CDC has been urging Americans to practice social distancing — refraining from large crowds or gatherings but 21 Savage decided to press his luck.
“So I’m like, ain’t no way in hell I caught it in the club, ’cause I know it ain’t just skipped over and came straight to me type shit,” he added. ” ‘Cause it’s like, damn, whoever the higher power is, bruh, I know it’s 60, 70 fuck niggas in the club. I came with some of the fuck niggas. So, I know it’s a good amount of fuck niggas in the club tonight. Ain’t no way in hell this shit done skipped over all these fuck niggas and just landed right on me.”
It was then, 21 Savage decided that he was one of the unlucky few.
“So I go to describing what I need when I’m feeling on the IV and I’m just describing regular like … I feel like I got a sinus cold, so that’s what I’m describing,” he continued. “Then I come to the conclusion … if I describe anything during these times, it’s automatically, ‘He got coronavirus.’ I can call them folks and say whatever, they still gonna say ‘coronavirus.'”
As of press time, more than 142,000 cases have been reported globally.
