2 Live Crew’s Uncle Luke states he “let his guard down” and now has COVID-19.
As we get ready to enter 2021, we are still battling with the COVID-19 pandemic. It has hit many in the entertainment industry, with the latest being 2 Live Crew’s Uncle Luke.
Luke Campbell, better known as Uncle Luke, is one of the South’s biggest hip hop pioneers who is known for defending free speech and highlighting Miami as a music capital. He recently let the world know he tested positive for COVID-19.
In a story written for the Miami New Times, Campbell explained how he joined “more than one million Floridians” who’ve been diagnosed with the disease. He stated during the pandemic, he was following the CDC’s guidelines, including wearing his mask whenever he went outside. However, he claims that due to peer pressure by a friend to attend a party, he tested positive for coronavirus.
“Last month, a friend celebrating his birthday at a local strip club would not stop blowing up my phone,” Luke wrote. “He kept begging me to come. I told myself I would go for 15 minutes and duck out. As soon as I walked through the doors, it was like stepping into a coronavirus-spreading chamber.”
A few days after the party, Uncle Luke said he felt a little sick, but then things progressively got worse. He detailed how he went through a wide number of symptoms such as a dry cough, a fever, and a loss of his sense of smell as well as taste. He took two rapid COVID-19 tests, both of which came back positive.
“If you go out, put your mask on when you are not drinking or eating,” he said. “You don’t have to be all up on each other, either. You can still hang out at a six-foot distance from each other. And if the establishment has too many people not following the protocols, don’t be afraid to go home and call it a night.”
