Rapper Scarface Tests Positive for Coronavirus: 'I Couldn't Breathe'

Scarface has been diagnosed with coronavirus (COVID-19).

The 49-year-old Houston-based rapper (whose real name is Brad Terrence Jordan) – best known as a member of the hip-hop group Geto Boys – made the revelation during an interview with Willie D streamed on YouTube on Thursday (March 26).

Scarface revealed that he has been battling an illness for weeks and has been in self-isolation ever since he started feeling symptoms (which began with an itchy feeling in his throat).

“You need to relay and convey that message to everybody that this is not fake,” he said.

His other symptoms were a fever – leading him to the emergency room – and difficulty breathing. He described it as an “elephant was sitting on my chest.”

“This whole three weeks has been an ordeal,” Scarface added. “It’s the craziest I’ve ever seen in my life. I’ve been to the point where I felt like I was gonna die.”

Fellow Houston rapper Slim Thug also recently shared that he tested positive for the virus. See every celebrity who has been diagnosed.
