According to UPROXX, the Louisville artist confirmed that he had a cataract on one of his eyes and pointed his camera phone towards his eye where a cloudy film appears to be covering a part of his eye.
“See that cataract growing over my eye, sh*t getting worse. It’s harder to see. It’s getting bigger,” the 28-year-old said in the video, explaining that he was planning to get surgery to address the issue but was unable to schedule them because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
