Prayers Up: Westside Gunn Rushed To Hospital After Not Being Able To Breathe

It’s the second time the Buffalo rapper has had a health scare in a month.

Westside Gunn faced a very scary health situation that landed him in the hospital.

On Tuesday (December 21), the Buffalo rapper and Griselda Records co-founder shared a picture of himself on a stretcher in the presence of an EMT and the caption “Pray for me they had to call for emergency. I couldn’t breath, it’s under control now but otw to hospital. 2x this month.”

It isn’t clear what caused WSG to lose his breath. In 2020, he told his IG followers he briefly spent time in the hospital after testing positive for COVID-19. The case was so serious that Gunn said it almost took his life.

He continued: “I went on Tidal live and Fat Joe live but soon as I was done I was right back on the breathing machine.
