If you're a Boosie fan, you're no stranger to his relentless work ethic. Throughout the year, we've witnessed his busy schedule, but it appears that his non-stop routine is finally catching up to him.

A recent Instagram post showed seated in his car, hinting at a health concern. His caption read, “shot out to the nurses n doctors at Baptist Memorial Hospital for getting my blood sugars down n getting me n out‼️ No , No DKA , just had to get some bags of fluids (been to 6 states n 4 days ) doc say i need rest i agree ..headed back home. Thanks to this big ass bed n i heard its go be raining.”

It's worth mentioning that Boosie revealed his struggle with type 1 diabetes, a condition he has been dealing with since childhood. In April 2020, he took to Instagram to ask for help in finding insulin glargine, also known as Lantus, reaching out to his Jacksonville followers for support.

This year has been a whirlwind for Boosie, with an unrelenting schedule that includes performances, album releases, film and show production, collaborations, and much more. The question on many minds has been: when does Boosie find time to rest? The demands on his shoulders are undeniably numerous.


A few days ago, a video surfaced on Boosie's Instagram, showing a visibly fatigued artist rushing through an airport terminal. “I toe up,” he confessed in the video, gasping for breath. “I need to hit the gym again. This exhaustion is real. I need to get back in shape.”

In the video footage shared by Boosie, he says: “Had to run to my gate man, I'm toe up man, I'm going to start back working out man, I'm toe up, I'm tired as fuck man. I got to get back in that gym man. I'm out of breath.”

Boosie's need for some much-deserved downtime is clear. It's evident that he's in serious need of a good break. Given the multitude of responsibilities he's managing, it's apparent that he's pushing himself well beyond his limits.


Each time Boosie takes the stage, he pours his heart and soul into his performance, giving it his all with 100% dedication. Boosie's shows are characterized by their dynamism, leaving fans invigorated yet fatigued by the end of the concert. A snapshot shared by the Louisiana rapper captured a moment of one devoted fan, who was seen seated in a chair, shoeless, and sound asleep after the show. Alongside the photo, Boosie's caption said it all: “Real Boosie fan‼️ When u have a dam good time at a Boosie concert #columbusmississippi was everything she was lit all night n knew every song ‼️”

Boosie's situation isn't one-of-a-kind. Similar to Boosie, other artists, such as Lil Durk, have encountered health challenges due to their demanding schedules. On July 6th, Durk found himself in the hospital due to severe dehydration, exhaustion, and hydration-related problems. This unexpected health scare compelled Durk to skip a show in Europe along with other tour dates. Presently, he's back on tour and has sold out Chicago. His recent performance was outstanding, completely selling out for two consecutive days.

While is on the mend, his fans and crew are flooding him with love and good vibes on social media. The Dilemaradio team is right there, bringing their positive energy to the party and rooting for Boosie's big return. But more than anything, everyone's coming together to send Boosie some well-deserved downtime and a fresh recharge.
