After falling ill and being forced to cancel his second Coachella performance, Chance The Rapper still hasn’t fully recovered.
His management team, spearheaded by Pat “The Manager” Corcoran took control of the Chicago MC’s Twitter account to offer a more detailed analysis of the nature of the illness and it appears to be a fever induced by the flu and tonsillitis.
The statement in full:
Last Friday, April 18, 2014, Chancelor Bennett PKA Chance the Rapper came down with a high fever and was experiencing difficulty breathing. Upon arriving at the Coachella music festival that day, he requested that he be brought home to rest for two days before his appearance at the festival on Sunday afternoon. He spent the night and Saturday in bed with assistance from his family whom had been in Los Angeles area at the time.
Upon rising on Sunday morning, Chance was running a 104 degree fever and could not speak due to the inflammation of his throat. He was rushed to Hollywood Presbyterian hospital where he was put on an IV drip and medicines were introduced to help control his body temperature and pain caused by his illness.
Chance has since returned to his home in L.A. and is recovering. His doctors have come to the conclusion that this illness was caused by a combination of the flu virus and tonsillitis. Chance is due to see a specialist this week to determine whether or not surgery is required.
The CTR team, in accordance with Chance, his family and doctors, have cancelled the remainder of this week’s shows, 4/23 – 4/27. We appreciate your concern and prayers.
Chance had performed at Coachella the weekend prior with Justin Bieber and all seemed well, but that clearly isn’t the case anymore.
