Earlier this month, Freeway was diagnosed with kidney failure after undergoing a routine checkup and had to be rushed to a nearby hospital in Philadelphia to receive an emergency dialysis.

Since then, the Philly rapper has shared several Instagram posts about his treatment and recovery. Now, he’s opened up about the health scare and his journey so far in an interview with BET.com.

“I had a routine physical with my primary care doctor. I gave blood one day and I went on the road for the weekend," he says. "Then I came back and I was at home lying in bed and I got a call from my primary care physician who told me to get to the closest emergency room because my levels was off. My kidney functions was real low and everything was just out of wack. I didn’t know what it was. I was just in tears.”

Freeway is expected to reschedule his FreeFest in Philadelphia once he fully recovers.
