The Houston rap legend was performing with the Geto Boys the day before for thier month-long tour which has now been put on hold. The reason for his hospitalization has not been disclosed.
Scarface has battled with depression and was also hospitalized for high blood pressure in 2002.
Via the Geto Boys Kickstarter page to fund thier eighth album, Habeas Corpus, group member Willie D released a statement about Scarface’s hospitalization saying that he will not be discussing the details of the matter.
“Today when I woke up, my mobile text messages and social media inboxes were inundated with comments seeking information about Scarface’s medical condition,” he said. “I am not at liberty to speak on his condition, and wouldn’t even if I was, as it is a private matter, but I will say that he is in good spirits, and sends his love to all who have supported him throughout his career, and personal life. Although I’m his bandmate, I’m also a Scarface fan, so I know it’s hard for you guys not having details, but I will try to keep you updated as much as I can without invading his privacy. Thanks and say a prayer for my homey!”
So far, the group has raised over $31,000 to fund Habeas Corpus.
