Legendary DJ and rapper Kid Capri took to Instagram on Thursday, Jan. 6, to reveal he is deathly ill.
The 54-year-old rapper from The Bronx revealed he is having a rough time battling COVID.
Even though he is vaccinated and boosted, Kid Capri told viewers:
“I’m sick as sh*t, man. Y’all gotta be careful out there, man. Y’all gotta be careful ’cause it’s bad out there. I’ve been sick for the last three days. F**king head is pounding. Back hurt. I’m pretty far from good. I just wanted to pop on here and tell y’all take care of yourselves, man. F**k them parties. F**k hanging out. If you ain’t gotta be somewhere then don’t go. Just relax, ’cause this sh*t is no joke. And a couple of my friends — a lot of people I know are dying.”
He added: “Force MDs, Jessie D died today,” referring to Force MDs lead vocalist Jessie Lee Daniels.
“Every shirt I put on, I sweat it out. The lady just left here to give me my test. I had the home test, she came over here and tested me. F**king head is pounding. But like I said, man, just stay out the way. Take care of yourself out there because it’s serious. Sh*t is serious.”
