하지만, things took a turn for the worse earlier this year, when he collapsed while working on his new music before falling into a coma for more than two months. Al B. (whose real name is Albert Joseph Brown III) shared that he suffered from multiple illnesses including renal failure to the point the doctors were considering putting him in hospice.

I was intubated, I was on a ventilator with a tracheotomy, 내 말은, there were so many things going on,” 그가 설명했다.

Al B. managed to pull his strength together after enduring the near-death experience and is now on his road to recovery, 그가 설명했다.

What people don’t truly understand, unless you’ve been through this type of medical journey, is taking for granted breathing, tying your shoes, speaking,” said the singer-songwriter who also revealed he is a recipient of a new liver.
