Recently, the Southern rapper talked to SOHH about surviving a near-fatal asthma attack last spring.
"Oh yeah, everything's better, man," Scrappy told SOHH when asked about his current health condition. "Like I told people, it was one of those times where I should have been had my asthma checked on. But I ain't ever go until my granny died and I went and drunk myself to a pulp. You dig? They say the liquor helps bring on asthma. ... I think it's something I had to take care of. I don't think it's about being more mature. What I've realized is don't no man like to go to the hospital unless there's something seriously wrong." (SOHH)
Reports of Scrappy's medical complications and hospitalization surfaced around mid-April.
