Young M.A spoke out about being recently hospitalized after a video went viral that raised concerns for her health.
Fans showed their concern for the Brooklyn rapper based on her appearance and demeanor in a recent video of her sitting in a barbershop. Young M.A said she recently underwent treatment at a hospital for a number of diseases and is currently on the recovery in a statement on Wednesday (March 15).
“As many of my supporters know I’ve been dealing with various personal health issues the last few years,” she wrote on Instagram. “I recently was hospitalized and was successfully treated for several conditions. I’m doing better now, will take some time but I’m on the road to recovery and look forward to the future.”
She added: “I’m in good spirits and everything will be explained in the MUSIC! Plus documentary.. Love y’all MAB! Don’t worry I’m good! Bless up.”
Aaron “Fats Da Barber” Turk, a celebrity barber and Wild ‘N Out star, shared the aforementioned video of Young M.A getting a haircut earlier this week. He previously took to his Instagram Stories to address people who criticized him for sharing the clip.
“Y’all got so much to say as if I’m trying to embarrass my dawg she reposted my video if she didn’t want me to record she would have told me,” he said. “Y’all don’t know our bond nor our friendship what y’all need to do is just send your prayers for her and that’s that.
“She didn’t have a haircut in a month and she wanted me to bring her haircut back to life which I did!!! thank you sis for coming and rocking with me like always love ya.”
Young M.A added at the time: “We blessed don’t let that get to you blooda…and I told you it’s was like 4 months.”
In May 2021, M.A released her final album, Off the Yak, which included contributions from Max YB, Rubi Rose, WAP5TAR, and Fivio Foreign.
She most recently worked on a song called “Choose a Side” with WAP5TAR in October 2022.
