Shawty Lo Hospitalized
The “Dey Know” rapper is now in stable condition following an issue with his diabetes.
Shawty Lo was hospitalized on Wednesday(December 21) following an issue related to his diabetes.
In a statement released to RapFix, the rapper’s manager confirmed that he sought care for his disease and that he is currently recuperating.
“We appreciate the outpouring of concern and prayers. Shawty Lo was hospitalized yesterday,” said his manager Johnnie Cabbell.
“He suffers from Diabetes and had to seek immediate medical attention, although he is now resting and doing well. [...] He will be able to fulfill his scheduled upcoming performances and appearances.”
Earlier this year, Shawty Lo had revealed that he had been struggling with the affliction for 11 years. “I’m diabetic. I’ve been diabetic for 11 years now, and first I was in denial when I first became a diabetic because I wanted to stay the same. But when you learn how to cope with it, you deal with it. I’m trying to teach people who have the disease that you can live with it.”
We hope that Shawty Lo makes a quick recovery and continues his quest with music and using his position as an artist to teach others how to cope with diabetes and still maintain a productive life.
