Juicy J Rushed To The Hospital, Expected To Perform Less Than A Day Later

Juicy J was rushed to the hospital before his show in San Francisco on Saturday night, but that won’t stop the rapper from performing in Boise Sunday, according to a post from his Twitter account.

Juicy J was rushed to the hospital shortly before his San Francisco show because he was having difficulty breathing, he said via Twitter.

Juicy J is a rapper from Memphis who saw his most recent mainstream success after he was featured on Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” single. That’s not to say that Juicy J hasn’t had a long career of his own. As one of the founding members of Three 6 Mafia, Juicy J has been a mainstay in the hip hop world for nearly 25 years.

Juicy J’s hospital admittance came in the middle of his The Hustle Continues Tour.

Shortly after the original tweet about being rushed to the hospital, Juicy J showed up on Instagram, where he shared a photo of himself in a hospital bed. The doctor had diagnosed him with exhaustion, he said.

The Dr said I’m Exhausted I haven’t been getting enough rest but I’ll be ok San Fran my Apologies i will make it up #THCTOUR still going strong

Throughout the past 24 hours, Juicy J has continued to keep fans updated about his condition via his social media accounts. On Sunday, he headed back over to Twitter and thanked fans for checking on him while he was in the hospital. Juicy J even said that between his canceled show and his time in the hospital, he’d recorded a new song.

Though he acknowledged that he needs more rest, Juicy J’s stay at the hospital didn’t seem to slow him down. Around 7:15 EST Sunday, he confirmed via Twitter that he had arrived in Boise and was getting ready for the show.

What do you think of Juicy J’s commitment to make sure the show goes on, even after he was rushed to the hospital?
