"As careful as I've been, self-quarantining, staying home–I might have did… Went got something to eat or something or did some stuff like that," he began. "Simple stuff like that, nothing crazy. Stayed in my truck had mask, gloves, everything on and my test came back positive so. Y'all gotta take this stuff serious."
The "Welcome 2 Houston" rapper said in a video uploaded to Instagram on Sunday (April 5) that he feels "better" after revealing his diagnosis.
