A post shared by Saint Laurent Don (@21savage) on

Last month, a blogger reported that she spotted socialite Amber Rose and her boyfriend 21 Savage at a Buckhead (Atlanta) clinic. The blogger reported that the rapper looked very weak and that Amber held the clinic door open for him (click here if you missed it).

On Wednesday, the ailing 25-year-old rapper, whose real name is Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, posted an Instagram photo of himself wearing an oxygen non-rebreather mask.

"[E]very time I come to Denver I can’t breathe," he wrote, referring to Denver's high altitude.

Well, millions of travelers visit Denver and they don't require non-rebreather oxygen masks. So something else must be going on with him.

A non-rebreather mask delivers a high flow of oxygen to patients who are usually critically ill, but they don't require breathing assistance (ventilator machine).

Rumors are running rampant that the rapper is battling a longterm undisclosed illness.

    Trust and believe if he were REALLY sick, he wouldn't be taking a selfie. If the doctor told me I had an incurable disease and I was dying I wouldn't care two flips about a picture. He'll be aight.
    Good night Roses! I hate working over time... But Sannie claus is comin.

  • Nina Ross

    I can't with these "look I'm sick and in the hospital/hooked up to an IV/lying in the hospital bed" photo shoots. The last thing seriously ill people are thinking about is damn IG.

  • tintin

    A paramedic I know said he tended to a 19 year old that was shot in his arm, he said the boy asked if there was wifi in the ambulance cause he needs to post his wound on the gram

  • Victor Nathan

  • dontgetblocked

    Oh Lord. I hope it's not...nevermind.

  • Evillene

    "Rumors are running rampant that the rapper is battling a longterm undisclosed illness."
    Asthma... Not that serious, lots of folks live with it. Changes in climate and altitude can be a trigger.

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    Oh i thought Amber handed him the package. LOL

  • Tammie Reed

    Hope he gets well soon! xoxo

  • Enoughsaid2020

    I've been to Denver, and it will mess with you. Look at a lot of the football players have this problem as well.

  • klwbaby

    I guess in the midst of not being able to breathe, he made sure someone took this pic....??

    Wayment...wasn't she jus at the clinic with him?...po little sickly fella.

  • hottlanta

    Tavis Smiey is gone. Got his hand caught in the cookie jar.
    According to an exclusive report from Variety, Tavis Smiley has been accused of sexual misconduct. He is currently suspended from his half-hour interview program that airs weeknights on PBS. The network released a statement, “Effective today, PBS has indefinitely suspended distribution of Tavis Smiley, produced by TS Media, an independent production company. PBS engaged an outside law firm to conduct an investigation immediately after learning of troubling allegations regarding Mr. Smiley.
    This investigation included interviews with witnesses as well as with Mr. Smiley. The inquiry uncovered multiple, credible allegations of conduct that is inconsistent with the values and standards of PBS.

  • hottlanta

    When I was sick I was not in a picture taking mode.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I had a coworker who as it before she died but she hasn’t other issues I believe she was in her 60s

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    I knew it was only a matter of time before black men got brought into this. I personally got a server gig for a rapper back in 2005 and ole dude grabbed my whole ?. I ran from the party sobbing and feeling so violated. He called the agency to get my number but my boss at the time cussed him tf out and told him that she would tell the tabloids (perez hiltin wax the hot one at the time) anyway, i heard this ninja has been doing it still since then and i cannot wait for him to be exposed

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    You just reminded me of her doggie poo and the overflowing trash cans pics? Thanks a lot! ??

  • C Mack

    He's smoking weed y'all

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Does this mean there's more to the "She makes me do sh*t that I don't normally do, like take vitamins and drink water." statement?

  • hottlanta

    Good for you SOME black men do it because they know some black people live by the code if I tell I am a snitch and no one will like me.

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    and lean?

  • C Mack


  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Yup! I was called a hoe a bish a slut on myspace by some black people when i posted about it. I was a virgin but ok. Smh

  • MRiGOThim

    Amber Rose done put that sick kitty on dat boi lmao

  • hottlanta

    Black women were more madder at Anita Hill than they were at Clarence Thomas. They were saying she kept trying to keep brotha down. The streets were vicious. Now he is on the bench and doesn't care about no one but himself.

  • stav

    Sandra only a fool speculates, he's said what it is, and that should be good enough! If there is anything more to the story, it's His buisness to tell it as he pleases! Hope he's doing well.

  • ?Royalty?

    I don't think he "couldn't" open the door. Even if was HIV - God forbid - he'd still be able to open a door.

    I thought Amber was just being kind. *shrug*

  • Vonn

    What does his name rhyme with?

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    (male or female?) ?

    You welcome Shug! ??

  • Diva_woman

    He may have sickle cell or just the sickle cell trait. For those who have the trait, high altitude can exacerbate their condition. Sickle cell predominately affects Africans and African Americans so it is not unlikely.

    *sprays Lysol* ?

  • Surprise2017

    Allen Iverson had the same problem when he played here. So I bet it's the altitude. SMH - I'm born and raised here & I hear it a lot from people who are not originally from here. They may not need a breathing mask but I'm sure it effects everyone differently.

  • Surprise2017

    They said his was with Men & Women. That's what I read anyway.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Smh... I knew it ?

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    You'll know if i say but he has several babymamas two of which had their babies closed to each other and he is butt ugly and dirty looking
    You know him for sure

    Aww, poor thing needs to go home and let his real mommy take care of him ?.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Butt ugly rapper with multiple baby mamas, and babies born close to each other. Hmm...

  • Ni Ni

    Well, he's paying for it now ?.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout


  • Ni Ni

    Not Tavis, smh.

  • hottlanta

    Yall be on it. I saw the one where he had with Ronald Reagan with Obama as the monkey Bongo giving him a bottle of milk. May he rot in hell.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Ole nasty self....

  • hottlanta

    Just spoke to Lil Hota in Texas she wanted to what was going on. I said chile they fixing to be dropping like flies because we never seen anything like this in our lifetime. I told her he also had a photo of Barak/Michelle at a convention with the faces of monkeys. It was pitiful.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Cousin said someone is now accusing Tavis Smiley of harassment. I just hope all are truth tellers as all are not honest as we saw with the football player who spent time in jail for rape and she lied. As for Mr. Johnson no sympathy if he touched her and because his spirit was nasty.

  • hottlanta

    I know right. They coming out the wood works. I used to look at his show a lot on PBS . He did a good interview with Maya Angelou. Lil Hot said something is going on. Tom is gone/Roland now Tavis. 3 giants in one year in less than 3 months. Did you click on the video above to see the disgusting images of Barak and Michelle.

  • Vonn

    I'm putting on my thinking cap & letting it marinate overnight. Sorry you had to suffer through that. Sending you internet hugs.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Not yet but I will. Steve ole corny arse better watch out.

  • hottlanta

    I died when Lawrence was saying how quiet he was and some guy just said he looks likes a disheveled drunk. I keep telling these stupid black boys while yall fighting over a corner these white boys fighting to take over the world. They have taken gangster and thuggery to whole different level because they have the money/time and connections. He is an idiot if he thinks they ain't watching his azz because they know he has terrorist tendencies. Listen to his speech he wants to overthrow the government by any means necessary.

  • Cricket404

    He might be anemic. I was hospitalized in Denver, problems of sickle cell trait and high altitude caused my red blood cells to enlarge.

  • Cricket404

    I have trait and fainted as soon as I got out the car at hotel.

  • Dainese

    That was too easy. All the tell tale signs.
    Several baby mamas.
    2 babies right next to each other.
    Butt ugly.
    Dirty looking.

  • Malai

    He said he isn’t going to apologize but I can GUARANTEE that he is apologizing and begging for the good Lord’s mercy right now! That is a crying shame! The ignorance of those FB posts!! Smh!

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    He was truly ignorant.

  • ArDnAhC45

  • 1BlueStar

    Why do people post pics like this? Of them lying in hospital beds, with hospital ID tags around their arms, IVs in their vein? Yeah, I know its all for attention but posting some mess on IG or FB would be THE LAST thing on my mind if it were me.
