Atlanta-based rapper OG Maco experienced a life-altering accident at the end of July, unfortunately leaving him with a handful of serious injuries.
Out of those injuries, the most severe is the loss of his right eye. In a new update on his accident and his recovery, he shared the sad news on his Instagram yesterday (August 3), offering a response to the people who thought he was joking about the extent of his injuries.
“Y’all bastards had all these jokes like I didn’t lose a eye real quick,” the rapper posted on Instagram. “I don’t mind. Just remember I never did a thing to you.”
He then went on to share that despite losing an eye, he hasn’t lost his vision or perspective of the world, explaining that the people making fun of people who experienced injuries are worse than the injuries themselves.
“To see a world where the doers and dreamers are ridiculed more than losers and conformity is ... worse than missing an eye,” he concluded.
Throughout the past several days, the 24-year-old rapper has posted on social media about how he is keeping his spirits high despite his injuries, even cracking a joke that the “plastic surgeon says I can’t get any uglier so fixing my face should be easy.”
Our prayers are with the young rapper as he recovers and hopefully finds his way back into the studio soon.
