    IRREGARDLESS OF WHATEVER HIS CONDITION MAY BE

    I PRAY THAT HE GET'S WELL

    NICCAS ALWAYS SPECULATING ABOUT SHIAT THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT-EVEN IF HE HAD IT WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?

    I was labeled as a "Brittle" Type 1 Diabetic when I was younger - they don't use that term anymore today, because it implies that your sugar levels cannot be controlled. They can, but I'm sure a rapper's lifestyle does not make it easy.

    But, regardless, I pray for his well-being. I know how sick and crappy that ish can make you feel. :(

    Heyyy Mizz Dallas!

    Yes, we are getting showers off and on and I work at 30 and Cockrell Hill. Good thing DeSoto is only 20 minutes away!

    The sirens in DeSoto go off if someone farts in the city, so until I hear them SAY there is a tornado in the area, I'm not tripping.

  • KaraZ

    He's only 33? He looks significantly older. Hope it wasn't Shakur that got to him.

    He posted the naked pic of that girl and less than a week later he is in the hospital. Karma is a byotch!

    Diabetes is a very hard disease on the body. It attacks your other organs as well. You also deal with slowness to heal. He may have an infection because something is taking too long to heal.

    @intensemocha Please don't jump on me BUT irregardless is not a word. I'm a teacher and that is one of those words that many people use incorrectly. Just like conversate. The verb is converse.

  • lnp03

    My dad was a very bad diabetic and I am praying for Shawty Lo as well. I know how it can affect the body.

  • http://facebook.com/Im2thick4u 2thick4u

    Karma...but I hope that he gets well!!

  • Divinebrown

    lnp03........YOU BEEN READING THE COMMENTS FOR A WHILE HAVEN'T YOU???????????

    DON'T LIE TO ME GAL.....

  • bk2atl

    @DB, giirrrlllll...LMAO!!!!!

  • Divinebrown

    bk2atl...........:rofl:

  • Shauny

    No matter what he has....I wish him a speedy recovery. ALLEGEDLY posting picture (that I actually think wifey did) and a stay at the hospital doesn't equal karma to me...but maybe I have a bit more empathy for the ill.

    lnp03 - Irregardless, conversate, and a lot of other non words are used frequently on here. It's been discussed on a regular and it's been determined that they are not words BUT just like all of the other ebonics we use on here, doesn't stop us. Let the teacher in you go when you're posting. You'll feel much better. :welcome: if you're new.

  • pointhimout

    See the thing about this is... I remember the rumors of him having AIDs back before he was "Shawty Lo"; he was just Carlos from Bowen Homes. He used to be a lot heavier and lost a lot of weight in a matter of months & had sores on the back of neck back when "The Bounce" (club) was poppin. This is something I saw myself. My ppl just told me don't sleep w/ him. They were cool w/ him but the rumor was enough to make them look out. Better safe than sorry. Either way, hope he feels better.
