The Visionaries Reinstate GoFundMe For 2Mex As He Battles Serious Health Issues

Posted on in Fresh Gems

Underground Los Angeles rap staple 2Mex is continuing to face health issues. Not long after he was hospitalized with congestive heart failure, he’s back in the hospital battling some serious complications stemming from diabetes.

Subsequently, his Visionaries crew has reinstated an old GoFundMe campaign for 2Mex, which was initially launched in 2016 around the time his leg was amputated.

On Wednesday (February 5), Key Kool and Lord Zen provided an update through 2Mex’s Instagram page. They revealed he’s just getting out the Intensive Care Unit.

“After removing 4 liters water through dialysis, Alex has stabilized to be able to move out ICU,” the update reads. “With 40 more liters to remove, and precautions to make sure that his heart is ok, it will be a long and strenuous battle here at the hospital. His immediate family, and long time compadres and loved ones have been here to comfort him during this trying time. While he can’t reply to all your calls and messages, he’s reading them when he has the strength, and it lifts his spirits and gives him positive energy.

“Please keep sending him prayers, love and good energy. For those asking about how to help with the massive medical bills to come, the Gundme.com/2MexLA campaign has been reinstated. Love and blessings to you all, we cant thank you enough for being our extended family love and support. Heal up 2Mex!”

On Tuesday night (February 4), 2Mex shared an Instagram video to his page and revealed he was back in the hospital. He appeared to be in agony as he rolled through the floor on a gurney with an oxygen tube in his nose.

According to the GoFundMe page, he’s dealing with a double whammy and nees all the help he can get.

“He is suffering from congestive heart failure and kidney disease,” Key Kool wrote in the GoFundMe description. “In the beginning December Alex was hospitalized, and this morning, 2/4/2020, he was taken to the hospital again ambulance due to kidney complications. We thank everyone for their contributions to help with the seemingly endless medical bills. He is also in dire need another prosthetic leg for when he is able to walk again.

“With all that is going on in the world, and all that may be going on with you personally, and also with your loved ones, a simple blessing and sending good energy is all we need. However, your monetary contributions are fully appreciated and we could not thank you all enough for showing your love and support for our brother, Alex, the man who loves you and hip-hop maybe more than himself.”

2Mex has been battling health issues for the past four years. In a June 2017 interview with HipHopDX, he explained how love saved him from depression following his amputation, something he evidently needs again.

“I cannot lay in bed all day on drugs and quit on life,” 2Mex said at the time. “That’s just not me. With all the love I got from the Hip Hop community, friends and family, I never had a chance to be depressed. From the jump, the overpowering support was like, ‘I have to get better ’cause look at all this support.’ You can’t throw that away.”
