Legendary Boston rapper Akrobatik reportedly suffered a heart attack last night. Rumors started flying last night that he was in a medically-induced coma. But many close peers confirmed that he was indeed not in a coma. He under went open heart surgery this morning and is reported to be in stable condition. He is well-known for his appearances on JAM’N 95.4′s morning show for his daily Sports Wrap-Up.
All of us here at StreetHop.com send our prayers to him and his family and hope he pushes through this.
Props to DJ Tek and HipHopDX.com.
UPDATE: Akrobatik has seemingly pulled through everything he has undergone and even posted a tweet thanking his fans, friends and family.
