Apparently, Atlanta-based emcee J.I.D is dealing with a medical condition involving his throat. On January 14, the Dreamville representative tweeted, “Tour f*cked my voice… I’m [on the way] to the [otolaryngologist] wish me luck✌ .”
J.I.D returned to the social media platform the next day to add, “I’m fina try to learn sign language in 2 weeks and rap wit a [headset] like Janet Jackson while I sign language at shows.”
Denzel Curry showed love to his upcoming opponent on Twitter. The Carol City native tweeted, “[Y’all] keep @JIDsv in y’all prayers & wish him a speedy recovery!” He later posted, “Everyone [knows] my history with my voice over the last few years so if anybody [feels] him I do… health is wealth.”
