Radio Host Al B. Sure! Is opening up about his recent health scare.

The 54-year-old radio host gave his first interview this week, speaking to FOX New York after waking up from a 2-month long coma.

In the talk, he discussed gaining weight at the height of his career after winning the American Music Award for best artist and getting nominated for two Grammys. He began to make some changes after Quincy Jones told him toplease get your act together,” prompting him to undergo bariatric surgery, which made him feel and look better.

然而, 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, 我的意思是, there were so many things going on,” 他解释说.

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

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

I have what’s called ‘Chevron,’ that’s when they cut your chest open which is probably the first time I was actually talking about it…[我是一个] recipient of an amazing blessed new liver — and you know I’m going to treat it well,” 他说.

As his health crisis came to light, Al B. also received huge support from industry colleagues and high-profile individuals including 史努比狗狗, 哈莉·贝瑞, and vice president 卡马拉哈里斯.

Getting back to business, Al is now working on writing a book about his life, creating a podcast, and producing new music. He also recently narrated a documentary about the life of the Rev. Al Sharpton entitled the Loudmouth.
