“It’s an incredibly scary thing to go through my friends,” the singer / songwriter wrote in an Instagram article on Friday, which was his birthday. “I am pleased to report that we now have a negative test and are in the process of regaining health. “
Edmonds was originally scheduled to take part in a long-awaited musical battle with fellow producer Teddy Riley on Instagram Live last Sunday. The virtual event, hosted by music producers Swizz Beatz and Timbaland, was later postponed over the weekend.
Last Sunday, Riley told radio host Charlamagne Tha God that the event was postponed because they wanted to make sure everything went smooth online. He also said that Edmonds was not “100%” and that he “had been sick”.
Edmonds later noted in his Instagram article on Friday that he had officially accepted the invitation to fight his “little brother” Riley for the virtual event, which he called “a celebration of the excellence of black music” .
The event will now take place on Instagram Live on April 18.
“Teddy !!! Let’s show them what Hip Hop / R&B music really means to the world! Edmonds wrote.
