A spokesperson for MGK couldn’t be reached for additional comment. The rapper dropped backstage during a show in the Seminole Casino at South Florida on Saturday (Apr. 22) after experiencing severe chest discomfort. A couple of days after he explained that he took several “serious damage to my torso plate/ribs this week” a appearing allusion to a previous tweet in which he said he “got punched in the torso 65 times. Fairly sure I can’t breathe” while on the Chicago collection of this sci-fi action movie Captive State, the Rupert Wyatt (Rise of this Planet of the Apes) film in which he stars alongside Vera Farmiga, John Goodman and Ashton Sanders.  

On Tuesday, he tweeted: “it feels like a f–ing knife is simply stuck at the left side of the torso.” Attempting to turn a negative into a positive, MGK utilized his convalescent time to release a new song from his upcoming record, Bloom, the extreme bad breakup tune “Let You Go.” The rock-tinged tune comprises MGK singing, “Whoa, whoa, she said you will need to le me go/ Whoa, whoa/ she said I’d die for you, you’re like my medication but I can’t get ignored you/ You are not mine anymore.”
