Hell Razah Suffers Brain Aneurysm
While the Wu have yet to make an official statement regarding his condition, fellow Wu-collaborator Bronze Nazareth has tweeted his support. “HELL RAZAH….Yo Lord push thru this! Much love fam your blessings are needed so fight thru it!!!! All Love,” Nazareth wrote.
While Twitter has been abuzz with news of the rapper’s health, a member of Killer Bee Promotions has confirmed that Razah, born Chron Smith, suffered the aneurysm on April 6, and was operated on Wednesday. The doctors claim that he is responding well, and should be out of the coma within a few days.
Razah is one of the Wu’s most quietly prolific artists. Signing with the Wu/Priority in 1995 as part of Sunz of Man, which also featured Killah Priest, Shabazz the Disciple, Supreme, 7th Ambassador and Prodigal Sunn, Razah saw several singles drop before their album, ‘Nothing New Under the Sun’ was shelved.
Regardless of his early label struggles, Razah made his mark as a solo artist in 1997 on Killarmy‘s ‘Wake Up,’ followed by his incredible appearance on Killah Priest’s ‘Tai Chi’ in 1998. Razah went on to make a slew of appearances and drop four albums with Sunz of Man, and three more more as a solo artist.
He also released collaboration albums with notable producers 4th Disciple and Blue Sky Black Death, and group projects with Killah Priest, Timbo King and Tragedy Khadafi as Black Market Militia in 2005, and with Shabazz the Disciple and producer Ayatollah as T.H.U.G. Angelz in 2008.
Recently, Razah was working on his highly anticipated solo album ‘Heaven Razah.’ We will continue to report on the rapper’s condition as he makes his recovery.
