Scarface updated fellow Geto Boy, Willie D, about his condition after being diagnosed with coronavirus, revealing that he is on dialysis after suffering kidney failure.
Scarface revealed during an interview with his fellow Geto Boy member, Willie D, that he's currently on dialysis due to kidney failure after suffering from health complications as a result of coronavirus. Ever since he announced to the world that he'd tested positive for the respiratory virus about a month ago, Scarface has been keeping fairly quiet about his health status. The Houston MC has hopped onto a few close friends' live streams to give brief updates on his medical condition, but on Wednesday (April 22nd), he went into great detail about how coronavirus has severely affected his health.

Hooked up to a blood stint to help regulate his kidneys, Scarface told Willie that the same day that he told the public that he'd contracted coronavirus, he was also battling various other health problems, as well. “I fought the COVID, double bilateral pneumonia and kidney failure, all in my house,” he revealed. “This my new lifeline,” he continued, referring to dialysis. “I gotta change my entire diet. I gotta do dialysis four times a week, three hours a day. That’s taking all of my blood out, cleaning it, and putting it back in my body. Before the COVID, I never had kidney problems before.”
