The Rapper’s Wife Speaks Out
Recently, Fred’s wife LeeAnn Jemmott shared details about his condition. Despite initial suggestions about Fred possibly losing the battle, the initial update revealed he was improving.
“It was just like — he’s gone and he’s gonna die, that’s it. I don’t even know how I felt, I just felt like I was going to die,” said Jemmott. “Now, instead of the ventilator supporting him 100%, it’s supporting him 70%. … We need him like he is our strength, he is our good vibes, our positivity. … Don’t just assume they are going to die. Because that’s all we are hearing is people dying, dying, dying. He’s winning, he’s winning.” (News 12 Brooklyn)

Before You Go
The same week, music mogul Diddy shared an emotional public service announcement about the coronavirus impacting African Americans more than other races. The New York rap executive said now is the time for blacks to come together to find the solution dealing with COVID-19.
“This is not a test. This is a real, life or death, state of emergency. I’m calling out to the African American community to give you some facts. We are in a life or death state of emergency. One out of ten Americans are black. One out of two of the corona fatalities are black. We are in trouble my people. We have to come together. We have to communicate. They’re not going to give us any time on the news. They’re not going to come up with the solutions for us. We have to come up with our own solutions.” -Diddy’s Instagram
