As of April 10, 2023, another video of Young M.A surfaced with her explaining what has been going on with her health and what she has on the way.
“What up, I know I’ve been lowkey. You know what I mean? Long story short, basically this is a small setback for just a comeback. Unfortunately, I made a lot of wrong decisions in my life and things start to catch up with you or whatever the case. I just want y’all to know, besides all that I’m actually doing better. I’ve been getting well and I’ve been very much sober. But anyway, I don’t want to go specifically into details because I really want to bring you all on my journey. So, besides [that] I’m dropping some new music of course. I’m also going to have a documentary of my story or whatever the case may be, so I can keep y’all in tune and catch y’all back up. Because I know y’all have been wondering and all that. Y’all know I’m mysterious and I keep my personal problems to myself. But now it’s time to expand that and express that to y’all,” Young M.A shared on her Instagram story.
