Young Noble, a founding member of Tupac’s hip hop group The Outlawz, has suffered a serious heart attack. In an Instagram post shared on Sunday (May 23), the 43-year-old rapper revealed he was hospitalized and is currently recovering from the cardiac event.

“Thank you to all my luved ones who been praying for me I had [one] of the worst days of my life yesterday I had a serious heart attack but God is too good & the amazing doctors brung me back an they getting me right,” he captioned a photo from his hospital bed.

Young Noble added that he plans to prioritize his health after the scary medical emergency.

“I plan to put everything in my life on hold while I recover an get my health all the way right,” he said. “This will only make me stronger. I’m grateful for a second chance an I beg y’all please please please take your health serious all the unhealthy living an stress catches up sooner than later!”

The Son of God rapper has been dealing with health issues for the past several weeks. In March, after celebrating his 43rd birthday, Noble revealed on Instagram that he was hospitalized for high blood pressure. In a post, he said he felt like he “was about to die” and was suffering from breathing problems.

“...It was actually my blood pressure, it was extremely high an it was causing my heart to over work so long story short I’m seeing a specialist to help get it under control,” he wrote. “I’m much better now but I say all that to say please please please my brothers & sisters start seeing a doctor and get check-ups more often, eating better, drink water, exercise, more rest an less stress... I been living a wild lifestyle for many years an it caught up!! Growing up I wasn’t taught to eat healthy, I had to eat what was available! I want to live a long life I have many people who love me an depend on me so my health is my main priority right now.”

In April, Noble updated fans and said his blood pressure was improving after working with a specialist.

Several supporters and rappers wished Noble a speedy recovery on Instagram, such as B-Legit and fellow Outlawz artists E.D.I Mean and Napoleon. Noble got his start with Tupac and the group in 1996, making his debut on Tupac’s posthumous album The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory.
