American rapper, French Montana has been reportedly hospitalized on Thursday for suffering from cardiac issues and intense nausea, National Sportslink report.
The 35-year-old Bronx rapper was hospitalized in Los Angeles for issues related to his heart. French was rushed to the hospital in the afternoon after reportedly experienced severe stomach pains, nausea, and an increased heart rate
According to TMZ reports, this happened after the rapper got an unexpected visit from cops to his home. According to the media outlet, it was the police who call 911 to get him medical help. Sources in law enforcement reportedly told TMZ that police were initially called to French’s Calabasas home for a possible robbery.
It turned out to be a false alarm, but French’s cardiac issues were not. Insiders connected to the rapper reportedly told TMZ that he had been suffering from stomach pains, nausea and elevated heart rate for much of the day.
French is reportedly at San Fernando Valley hospital and is alert. He’s getting IV fluids into his body and is expected to be released later today.
French’s medical scare comes at an inopportune time. The 35-year-old rapper is expected to release his new album Montana, a follow-up to his 2017 effort Jungle Rules, later this month.
Although French hasn’t announced an official release date for the project, he did confirm that the album will drop in November. To promote his upcoming release, French has released two singles, “Twisted,” featuring Juicy J, Logic and A$AP Rocky, and “Writing on the Wall,” featuring Post Malone, Rvssian and Cardi B.
National Sportslink understands that French’s hospitalization comes a few weeks after the rapper celebrated his birthday by taking a trip to Africa. The rapper was born and raised in Morocco.
While he was there, French documented his trip and posted a number of photos with his parents and loved ones on Instagram.
“LIVE FROM AFRICA !! Mission impossible accomplished 🙏” read one caption in a slideshow of photos.
“Best bday ❤️ saw my moms and pops in Africa !!!” wrote French in another snap, which was captured as he held his arm around his dad mid-laughter.
