After testing positive for COVID-19 in March, Houston rap legend Scarface has shared details about the virus's effect on his life and other health issues. Now, the artist has returned with another update from recovery.

Speaking with FOX 26 Houston recently, Scarface shared that his recovery was still an ongoing process. 

"COVID attacked my lungs first, and then it attacked my kidneys and knocked them out," he explained. "I got full lung recovery, but my kidneys never came back."

In late April, Scarface told fellow Geto Boy Willie D that the kidney issues meant undergoing dialysis "four days a week, three hours a day." Now, he says he's receiving the treatment daily.

"I'm still a little weak. I don't have a lot of strength in my legs yet. I still haven't got full taste back and sense of smell yet," he told FOX. "But I am glad to be alive."

He continued: "It's serious, you could be going on with your life and then that very next moment you could lose everything. Kidney function, liver function, lung function, heart function – you can actually die from the COVID, it's crazy. It can actually kill you."
