Boosie Badazz keeps himself so busy that people often forget about the daily health battle the rapper is faced with managing – diabetes. The illness has plagued the controversial artist since his late teens. While he does his best to manage his health, it's proven difficult to be perfect over the years. As HipHopDX reports, he recently landed in the hospital due to a severe fluctuation in his blood sugar levels. On Sunday (August 27) night Boosie shared the news with fans via Instagram, letting them know that he plans on taking some time to get himself in check before he can continue to entertain the world.

"[SHOUT] OUT TO THE NURSES N DOCTORS AT BAPTIST MEMORIAL HOSPITAL FOR GETTING MY BLOOD SUGARS DOWN N GETTING ME N OUT‼️" the 40-year-old wrote in the caption of a photo of his arm with a hospital bracelet wrapped around it. "NO COVID, NO DKA. JUST HAD TO GET SOME BAGS OF FLUIDS (BEEN TO 6 STATES N 4 DAYS). DOC SAY I NEED REST I AGREE ✅," Boosie reflected. Obviously, touring isn't at all easy on his body, especially not after beating cancer too.

The "Wipe Me Down" hitmaker said that he'll be heading back home to his "big a** bed" this week. Boosie added that he's looking forward to the potential rain showers coming up in the forecast.

On top of the support of his loved ones, the lyricist also has countless fans praising his decision to put himself first in the comment section. "You and the phone need to rest 😂❤️," one of them joked.
