Kid Capri Is Battling COVID-19: "I'm Far From Good"

By Rock The Bells Staff

Legendary DJ Kid Capri is battling COVID-19. The Bronx native shared his story on Instagram, while warning his followers to "be careful" and take the ongoing pandemic seriously.

“I’m sick as shit, man,” he said. “Y’all gotta be careful out there, man. Y’all be careful ’cause it’s bad out there. I’ve been sick for the last three days. Fucking head is pounding. Back hurt. I’m pretty far from good. I just wanted to pop on here and tell y’all take care of yourselves, man. Fuck them parties. Fuck hanging out. If you ain’t gotta be somewhere then don’t go. Just relax, ’cause this shit is no joke.”

Capri acknowledged the death of Force MD's member Jessie D; as well as the ongoing health battle of DJ Kay Slay.

“A lot of people I know are dying," Capri added. "Force MD’s Jessie D died today. It’s killing a lot of people, man. So if you ain’t healthy, it’ll do you in. So just try to stay out the way, man. Every shirt I put on, I sweat it out. The lady just left here to give me my test. I had the home test, she came over here and tested me. Fucking head is pounding. But like I said, man, just stay out the way. Take care of yourself out there because it’s serious. Shit is serious.”

“Kay Slay too, man,” he said. “I called Kay Slay in the hospital, he told me he almost checked out. He said, ‘I almost checked out last night K.’ He couldn’t even talk, he could hardly talk. But I think he’s getting better though. I’m just fucked up right now, I can’t do shit. I was supposed to do a show in Chicago this week. We canceled everything, we canceled all that shit. I’m not gonna be on Sirius this week. I just can’t do nothing, man. I’m just gonna sit down and try to get rid of this shit, man.”
