Westside never divulged when he tested positive for COVID-19, but said that it took “weeks” for him to fully recover from the virus’ symptoms, which got so bad that when checking into a hospital, he felt like he was “breathing my last breath.” Gunn also said that Sunday marked the first day in a month that he stepped outside, aside from going to the hospital.
“I have a confession to Make I’m a Corona Survivor,” he wrote. “I didn’t want anybody feeling sorry for me I had to thug it out for weeks I didn’t get to see my kids I went to the hospital feeling like I was breathing my last breath the fans and the love I was getting kept me strong.”
Gunn recalls speaking with Fat Joe and hopping on Tidal Check In before being hooked back up to a breathing machine. The latter appearance occurred on April 3.
Westside couldn’t have overcame the coronavirus at a better time. His latest project Pray for Paris drops on April 17.
