Jeremih in ‘Critical Condition’ in the ICU, Agent Says
“J was just pulled off the ventilator,” his agent wrote in a statement to Variety. “He’s still in ICU in critical condition. Please keep him in your prayers.”
Rapper 50 Cent was the first to specify that the situation at hand was related to COVID-19, sharing that Jeremih had been hospitalized in his native city. “Pray for my boy Jeremih. He’s not doing good. This COVID shit is real. He’s in the ICU in Chicago,” he wrote.
Chance the Rapper also asked for his fans’ support, writing: “Please if you can, take a second to pray for my friend Jeremih. He is like a brother to me, and he’s ill right now. I believe in the healing power of Jesus, so if you can for me, please please say a prayer over him.”
Jeremih quickly rose to stardom in 2009, when he signed with Def Jam Recordings and released his debut single “Birthday Sex” that led his self-titled debut album. His success continued with his second album, “All About You,” featuring his hit single “Down on Me.” In 2014, his track “Don’t Tell ‘Em” with YG once again topped the charts, followed by his third studio album, “Late Nights,” that was released in 2015.
His latest work was a collaboration album with Ty Dolla Sign, titled “MihTy,” from August 2018.
