The Yachty concert announcement comes hours after former G.O.O.D Music artist Desiigner claimed the coronavirus pandemic was over. This past weekend, the New York rapper explained why he didn’t have any concerns about getting a COVID-19 infection.
“No funny, corona is fake gone. No funny sh*t. Enjoy life, no cap. We ain’t even on that type of vibe. That corona sh*t is BS. You feel me? I ain’t get sick yet. I’m outside healthy. Yes sir!”
Coincidentally, Desiigner spent May 2020 pushing coronavirus awareness. He even put out his very own facial mask protection in an effort to slow down the spread of COVID-19.

Wait, There’s More
West Coast rapper Doja Cat is providing some more clarity and details into her recent bout with the COVID-19 infection. The hip-hop star went to her social media pages last week to dish on how she dealt with coronavirus. On Wednesday, Doja hit up her Twitter page for a non-stop interaction with concerned followers. She dished on everything from the symptoms she experienced with COVID-19 and said the virus had left her body.
“not anymore,” Doja tweeted when asked if she still had COVID-19. “I couldn’t taste bacon and my legs hurt. [Respiratory issues?] No. [Fever?] For 2 days yea … [Scared of it now?] Never was. Thats why I got it in the first place.” -Doja Cat’s Twitter
Before You Go
Heading into the prior weekend, Doja broke massive news to fans during an interview. While she couldn’t exactly pinpoint what might have caused her coronavirus infection, Cat said it could have happened from a food delivery.
“I got COVID,” she said during an appearance on Capital XTRA yesterday (July 24). “Honestly, I don’t know how this happens but I guess I ordered something off of Postmates and I don’t know how I got it but I got it.” The musician, whose real name is Amala Zandile Dlamini, said she was “OK now”, but didn’t confirm when she thought she had the virus. “It was a four-day symptom freak out but I’m fine now,” she added.
