The Detroit, Michigan native went on to detail the severity of his distressing heart condition.
“For those of you who haven’t been to my house,” the clown-painted emcee told the audience. “The studio is probably 40 meters from my front door. I noticed I was going out to the studio every day, when I got to the damn studio, I was out of breath. ”
His disabilities didn’t stop there.
“Then when I would walk up to my mailbox, I’d say, ‘Oh fuck, I have to take a break.’ What’s the problem?” J added.
After suffering in silence for several weeks, the “Boogie Woogie Wu” rhymer went to the hospital to get tested.
Doctors eventually determined that he had severe atrial fibrillation, or AFib, which is a sustained cardiac arrhythmia that causes the heart’s upper chambers to beat at an extremely rapid and irregular rate.
“That scared the hell out of me,” J said of his diagnosis.
He explained that doctors prescribed him various medications and put him through several intense medical procedures.
During a procedure, specialists entered the body through his leg to burn a scar that had formed on his heart due to the irregular heartbeat.

“They burned the scar,” he said. “And when I woke up they told me, ‘Your [heart] is beating normally. But it could go backwards at any time from now until 6 years from now. ”
And while J admitted that his doctors advised against performing live shows regularly, he assured ICP fans that his sick heart won’t stop the music.
“[This] does not mean that we are not playing,” he said. “We’re going to play every Juggalo weekend, every Hallowicked, every damn [Big Ballers Christmas Party], every event.”
The clown-crazy crowd cheered as J explained the group “Neden Game” plans to keep waving the mic.
“We are going to do a show somewhere every month; one show a month is our plan,” he said. “I want to make it clear: making music is not affected in any way, shape or form by anything that happens with Shaggy or me from a health point of view.”
