Painful! Coronavirus kills New York rapper
New York rapper Fred the Godson died Thursday after being diagnosed with COVID-19, his manager confirmed.
the rapper’s manager, David Evans, said in an emailed statement. “Fred left this world better than he found it.”
The “Armageddon” artist revealed that he had contracted coronavirus in a social media post earlier this month.
“I’m in here with this Covid-19 (expletive)! Please keep me in y’all prayers!!!” Fred wrote on April 6 alongside a photo that showed him in a hospital bed wearing an oxygen mask.
A few days after Fred’s post, his wife LeeAnn Jemmott stated in an interview that her husband was in the intensive-care unit but she hoped he was going to make it.
“He is Cov-19 positive on a ventilator. However, he is progressing! He went in having difficulty breathing on Monday evening,” Jemmott stated, I received a call he was not going to make it because his lungs were not working. He was then put on a ventilator, and as of today, the doctors already weaned him down from 100 percent support to 40 percent support of ventilation.”
