8 Rappers Who Suffer From Serious Medical Conditions


Last week, Miami rapper Trina was hospitalized after collapsing in a Florida airport. According to reports, Trina’s unexpected collapse was caused by “dehydration and overexertion” and she was later released from the hospital that day.

While the cause of Trina’s collapse seems to be relatively minor, many members of hip-hop’s elite happen to suffer from far more serious conditions than a lack of proper hydration. Over the years, rappers have revealed that they suffer from a host of maladies that affect their regular everyday lives. In the 40 years of hip-hop’s existence, artists have announced that they suffer from everything from asthma to AIDS.

XXL is looking back today at 8 rappers who have announced that they suffer from serious medical conditions.
