Scarface, one third of legendary Houston rap outfit Geto Boys, was hospitalised in in Houston on June 30.
Geto Boys’ Willie D made the announcement on the group’s Kickstarter page, where the trio are raising funds for a new album, Habeas Corpus. The group performed a show in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the night before.
“Today when I woke up, my mobile text messages and social media inboxes were inundated with comments seeking information about Scarface’s medical condition,” Willie D said. “I am not at liberty to speak on his condition, and wouldn’t even if I was, as it is a private matter, but I will say that he is in good spirits, and sends his love to all who have supported him throughout his career, and personal life. Although I’m his bandmate, I’m also a Scarface fan, so I know it’s hard for you guys not having details, but I will try to keep you updated as much as I can without invading his privacy. Thanks and say a prayer for my homey!”
A representative for the group confirmed to Billboard that Scarface had left the hospital and was resting at home, but did not share any further details.
Geto Boys’ Kickstarter campaign has raised nearly $29,000 toward its $100,000 goal with eight days remaining. [via Billboard]
