Westside Gunn was admitted to the hospital after having trouble breathing.
The “Allah Sent Me” rapper took to his Instagram on Tuesday to share with his fans that emergency services were called because he couldn’t catch his breath. In a photo shared on his Story, Gunn is seen laid out with EMTs around him. In another Story post, the rapper says, “I should’ve been benched myself,” referencing his health issues last year.
In 2020, he revealed that he nearly lost his life to COVID-19. At the time, he stated that he was quarantining but ultimately had to be admitted to the hospital after “ feeling like I was breathing my last breath.”
