Scarface on shedding 100 pounds: ‘I was at stroke level’


Scarface revealed his massive weight loss recently and explained just how poor his health had become. The 45-year-old rapper slimmed down noticeably over the past year; going from 291 to 193 pounds. He says that he was motivated to get healthier after discovering just how detrimental his health situation had become.

Scarface lists a series of ailments that could have put him at death’s door.

“I was at stroke level,” ‘Face told BlackDoctor.

“I had it all: congestive heart failure, malignant high blood pressure, kidney damage, enlarged heart, sleep apnea, borderline diabetic, etc. My life was threatened,” the rap legend continued. “So if someone in the street threatens my life, he better make good on it. Because I have to kill him or he’s going to kill me. So I had to kill bad health.”

Scarface’s focus on his health follows hip-hop star Rick Ross shedding over 100 pounds earlier this year following his suffering through seizures in 2012. Several high-profile hip-hop artists in Scarface’s age group have died in recent years due to various health issues; including Heavy D and Nate Dogg.
