Atlanta's Lil' Scrappy, famous for his crunk anthems with Lil' Jon, was hospitalized Tuesday after a severe asthma attack. The "Money in the Bank" rapper says the attack was so serious, he felt that his life was in danger.

Scrappy tells TMZ that he woke up after a long night of drinking and could barely breathe.

"I felt like I was dying," he said.

Luckily, the 28-year-old emcee's mother and friends were around to rush him to the hospital. He was treated at Emory University Hospital and later released with a "breathing machine."

"I will never leave anywhere without it again," the "Money in the Bank" rapper said. "If it weren't for my driver, mom and rap artist I would have been dead."
