On Tuesday (March 24th), the Philadelphia rapper took to Twitter to reveal he was “extremely sick,” with alleged flu like symptoms that he compared to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. Meek wrote,
“I was extremely sick in December around Christmas time with flu like symptoms… everyday I said to myself a older person cannot survive this!”

Although Meek never confirmed what illness he suffered back in December, there have been more than 100,000 coronavirus cases, according to the CDC.
As previously reported, Meek addressed issues for those who have found it difficult to quarantine and stock up on food to protect themselves from the virus. He tweets,
“People where I’m from don’t have the money to run out and stock the fridge and stay in….”
Meek also addresses alludes to disadvantaged people feeling at times disconnected to what they see on the news.
“When you from the #otherside you could literally watch the news and feel like they not even talking to you and your family so your mind frame will forever be with the streets!”
