OG Maco Hospitalized After Accident
OG Maco is recovering from some very serious injuries. Though it's still unclear what exactly happened to him, the Quality Control MC posted a pic of himself in the hospital over the weekend (July 23) and gave a status update on the extent of his injuries with a few tweets. Judging from Maco quoting Kanye West's famous lyric, "Thank God I ain't too cool for that safe belt," the incident might have been some type of car accident.
"Multiple skull fractures, broken orbital (surgery next week), cracked vertebrae (surgery next week) and heart palpations. I feel ALIVE!!!," wrote the Atlanta rhymer on Saturday. "On the bright side, my plastic surgeon says I can't get any uglier so fixing my face should be easy," he joked. Maco also had time to post a swollen-eyed selfie from his hospital bed, but then again he's not the first rapper to share one of those.
The line in his tweet, "I feel alive," is a reference to Maco's recently dropped single "Alive" featuring BJ The Chicago Kid. It's pretty stealthy marketing to promote a song while simultaneously updating fans on his condition. Though he's been relatively quiet this year musically, the "U Guessed It" rapper is slated to drop is album, Children of the Rage in the fall and seemed to be gearing up for it. Just hours before this incident, the former XXL Freshman was inviting fans to be extras in his upcoming pool party video shoot.
XXL has reached out to Maco's camp for comment. In the meantime, check out Maco's tweets below.
