Scarface tested positive for COVID-19 after becoming so sick that he says he “felt like I was going to die.”
The legendary Houston rapper is currently isolated after suffering from a severe case of pneumonia and kidney failure.
Scarface, whose real name is Brad Jordan, had been in and out of the hospital for three weeks after falling ill.
It all began on a Sunday when he had an itch in his throat and the doctor prescribed him some meds. By Wednesday, he was suffering from high fevers. By the following Sunday, he was in the emergency room.
I get in there, I’m freezing to death. They stick needles in my arm and start running me IVs [with] antibiotics through my veins. I couldn’t take it. Three or four bags a day.
He was released from the hospital on Tuesday and by Friday things had really taken a turn for the worse and he was hospitalized again!
It started with pneumonia in both of my lungs. And three or four days later my kidneys failed. Three or four days after that they tell me I can’t move, I’m quarantined.

Sending love and many prayers to Brad for a speedy and full recovery.
