L.A. Rap Vet 2MEX Recovering After Emergency Surgery

2MEX

Los Angeles rapper 2Mex is currently hospitalized, after going through surgery stemming from diabetic complications.

While details are unclear, the underground rap vet revealed on social media that his blood sugar was so high, his foot became extremely swollen and nearly had to be amputated. He barely made it, according to his Instagram account.

"I am near death, but will fight this til the end," 2MEX wrote. "I was unaware of my 700 blood sugar. In fact the doctors looked at me like how are you alive?"

He went on to say that he had given up sugar altogether, which had an adverse effect on his health. "That sh*t hit me like a ton of bricks," he wrote. "My foot swole up like a football and the skin broke".

2MEX has undergone surgery and is currently recovering. In an IG post earlier this week, he said that he's heavily sedated, but "will survive this".

Just a quick update. Surgery went ok .my foot looks like a shark bit through it honestly. Doctor just told me there a 70 percent chance that my foot will be amputated because we don't want it to go up into my leg. And or kill me. I've been on so much morphine that I haven't been able to see straight for 2 days. Thank u for all the message and love truly. I will deal the future soon and I apologize for not responding. Please send this to my world wide family. I will survive this.
