Rhymefest Hospitalized due to Diabetic Coma Scare |Update|


A few days ago, Chicago emcee Che “Rhymefest” Smith was rushed to the emergency room at the risk of falling into a diabetic coma after his sugar levels reached 739 mg/dL (normal levels would be around 80 mg/dL). According to his Twitter account from an unnamed source, the former Chicago mayoral candidate has had Type 2 Diabetes for years and was unaware of it.

Update: Now we’re hearing that Rhymefest was released from the hospital yesterday and is officially back on his feet. We hope all is well with the young activist and emcee.

You also might remember Rhymefest as a previous guest on the show. Check out his interview with Ms. Drama after the break on his career, candidacy, and working with Kanye.
