Rap legend Uncle Luke, born Luther Campbell, has revealed that he has tested positive for COVID-19. The Miami rapper and producer revealed that he caught the coronavirus because a friend convinced him to go to a party.
I told myself I would go in for 15 minutes and duck out. As soon as I walked through the doors, it was like stepping into a coronavirus-spreading chamber. Everybody was wildin’ out and getting drunk. Almost no one was wearing masks. My buddies were all up in my face. Patrons and strippers were walking up to me and asking to take selfies. Of course, I obliged when they asked me to take my mask off. Even though I felt like everyone in the club was an asymptomatic carrier, I stayed late.Uncle Luke
The 59-year-old added,
A few days later, I started having a dry cough. I chalked it up to seasonal allergies. When I lost my appetite, I told myself it was probably a stomach virus. I didn’t want to believe I had COVID-19. When I lost my sense of smell and taste, I knew I had to get tested. I called a home testing service to come by and give me a rapid swab test. I was first told the result was positive, then informed it was a false positive when they called me a few hours later.Uncle Luke
Campbell detailed how he went through a wide number of coronavirus related symptoms. He went back and had another rapid COVID-19 test, which was positive. He was told to self-quarantine for two weeks.
