“I’m in here with this Covid-19 shit! Please keep me in y’all prayers!!! #GodIsGreat,” Fred said in Tweet.

FTG isn’t the only rapper to be hit with Coronavirus. Houston rapper Slim Thug recently tested positive for COVID-19.
“I was definitely surprised because I was trying to be precautious way earlier than a lot of people,” the “I Ain’t Heard Of That” rapper said during an interview with VIBE. “I started to feel a headache and a fever and I’ve never had those symptoms so I thought, ‘Man this Corona time, it’s got to be something.’ But at the end of the day, I haven’t felt severe sickness or nothing.”
“I have high blood pressure, I already do this. I run three miles at the park and go to the gym every day, so I’m pretty healthy,” Thug continued.” You know, I never felt like I wouldn’t be able to fight this off, I never really felt really sick or crazy sick, just kind of felt like a sinus infection.”
Also, YMW Melly recently tested positive for the virus while in jail awaiting trial for double murder. The “Suicidal” rapper has plans to file a motion for his release.
Also, Yo Gotti and Team Roc filed a motion demanding that inmates in Parchman Penitentiary receive testing for COVID-19.
