The legendary Kurtis Blow is currently in recovery after having to undergo an emergency surgery just last week.

Taking to Instagram to share an update on his status, the hip-hop pioneer explained that his wife urged him to go to the hospital, as the rapper previously survived a heart attack back in 2016 as well as undergoing open heart surgery last May. In the social post Kurtis wrote:

The Covid 19 virus is crazy but last week I had another emergency surgery. My spleen was bleeding into my stomach. I went to the ER just in time because my wife made me go. I wanted to go in the morning. The surgeon said I was lucky to make in time. They took out my spleen and saved my life. My spleen had splattered and I was bleeding internally.

Blow ended his message on an introspective note, adding, “ Thank God for still another chance. 7 operations. A Cat with 9 lives -Amen!!!!”

Sending our well wishes for a healthy recovery for the iconic figure.
