Moneybagg Yo took to social media to share some unfortunate news about his mother’s health.
On Friday night, the Memphis-born rapper took to Twitter to reveal his mom had tested positive for coronavirus and was diagnosed with pneumonia. Though he didn’t provide details on his mother’s current condition, he told his followers he needed their prayers: “Dam mane how df My mama got COVID and pneumonia,” he wrote, “smh I need y’all prayers right now.”

Just moments before he shared his mom’s diagnosis, Moneybagg indicated he was dealing with a troubling situation: “Mannnn I hate wen shit goin good sum bad come right behind it,” he wrote.
