Two days after he was taken to the hospital for kidney failure after collapsing during a pick up game of basketball in Atlanta, rapper MC Breed has been taken off life support.
Although his condition has been upgraded, the rapper born Eric Breed, will remain at the hospital for at least another week under observation.
Breed collapsed and fell unconscious Friday (September 5) on the basketball court while playing the pick up game.
The rapper was later rushed to the hospital, where doctors diagnosed him and informed him his kidneys had failed.
At this time, he is slowly recognizing faces and voices while recovering. Family members told AllHipHop.com that severe high blood pressure was one of the reasons why MC Breed suffered from such a serious health condition.
Prior to his collapse, Breed was preparing to release an album titled Original Breed that featured West Coast rap icon Too $hort.
Plans also call for the release of a DVD, titled Where is MC Breed. The film will chronicle Breeds 17-year career as an artist while featuring rare footage.
