Westside Gunn reveals he suffered from COVID-19 and is now virus-free

“I went to the hospital feeling like I was breathing my last breath,” the Griselda rapper wrote on Instagram.

Westside Gunn is thankfully Coronavirus-free after suffering in silence from the novel virus for the past few weeks. In an Instagram post shared on Sunday (April 12), the Griselda rapper revealed he’d been hospitalized due to severe COVID-19 symptoms.

“I have a confession to Make, I’m a Corona Survivor,” he wrote on the ‘Gram. “I didn’t want anybody feeling sorry for me I had to thug it out for weeks. I didn’t get to see my kids. I went to the hospital feeling like I was breathing my last breath.”

Thankfully, the Buffalo native is now rid of the disease and noted that “the fans the love I was getting kept me strong.”

“I knew I had to drop this Pray for Paris bc GOD have bigger plans for me,” he added, referring to his forthcoming solo album. “I went on Tidal live and Fat Joe live but soon as I was done I was right back on the breathing machine.”

“Today is the first time besides the hospital that I’m about to go outside in a month thx to the ppl who did know and held me down now,” his post continued. “I’m about to go harder than I ever have. That sh*t tore me up inside I literally thought I was dead designing these clothes and having my back and sending me a beat kept me motivated. I’m back feeling myself don’t it look like I’m from Paris. I love ALL MY SUPPORTERS.”

Westside’s upcoming Pray for Paris LP is set to feature contributions from Wale, Joey Bada$$, Tyler, the Creator, Freddie Gibbs, Conway the Machine, Benny the Butcher and Roc Marciano. The album’s cover art was designed by Louis Vuitton Artistic Director, Virgil Abloh. Pray for Paris is expected to drop on Friday (April 17).

Unfortunately, Westside joins a growing list of several rappers who have contracted Coronavirus, including Slim Thug, Scarface, YNW Melly and Fred The Godson.
