The rapper, who also trended for all the wrong reasons last year when he flashed his 4-5 on social media, has again drawn widespread concern after the latest incident.
While it is not clear what caused his collapse, those close to the rapper have leaped to his defence on social media dispelling all allegations that it could be substance related.
Saudi, his label mate tweeted: “Have Y’all thought that Emtee is an artist and spends days on the street without resting? Hustling for his family to eat and entertain Y’all? He’s human too, his body gets tired at times especially at such a busy weekend for artists, stop jumping into conclusion.”
As a fan of SA Hip Hop: this is not a laughing matter. The music business (in general) & hiphop specifically has to address how young artists are guided & mentored.
I wish @EmteeSA had seen my interview with Fresh about “respecting your craft”.
I hope Emtee recovers from this https://t.co/53CuEmQSuq
