While Drake has announced he tested negative for coronavirus, Slim Thug says he’s contracted the virus. The Houston-bred MC just announced he tested positive for COVID-19.
Slim told the world the news via social media noting that his symptoms were a slight fever and a cough. He also said that he took precautions including wearing gloves and masks and still caught the virus.
“Check this out. No games being played. The other day I got tested for the coronavirus, and it came back positive,” said Thug. “As careful as I been self-quarantined and staying home — I might have went and got something to eat, stayed in my truck, mask, gloves, everything on — my test came back positive.”
He added, “Y’all gotta take this stuff serious. Sit home. Self-quarantine. Do not come outside for however long they saying. If you have symptoms, you need to go get checked out.”
So is Slim Thug the first rapper to get coronavirus? Maybe … maybe Not. Meek Mill and Style P believe that contracted the virus months ago and it went away.
