The rapper mentioned that he has been battling coronavirus for several weeks and as a result he is practicing social distancing.

"You know, like this whole three weeks have been an ordeal, Will. Like it`s the craziest s--t I've ever done and seen in my life. I've been to the point where I just felt like I was going to die, bro. I threw up so much until it was just hot sauce. Like your gasses and the shit in your stomach, your acids. I didn't have no food in my stomach. It was just coming up like bile bro," Scarface explained to Will in the video.

"I've been to the point where I felt I was gonna die," he added.

The American rapper went on to urge viewers to take the virus seriously. "It's not fake. I'm not all the way out the woods yet."
