Boot Camp Clik leader Buckshot has been hospitalized due to health related issues forcing his performance tonight in New York to be rescheduled.
The Brooklyn emcee was scheduled to perform at a sold-out show in Manhattan featuring other Duck Down artists including Sean Price, Rock, Tek, Steele and others. The label’s CEO Dru Ha detailed the unexpected trail of events in an email last night (September 25).
“Tomorrow’s SOLD OUT Black Moon & Smif N Wessun 'Tribute To Classics' performance at NYC’s Knitting Factory has been rescheduled for Saturday, November 8th due to a Buckshot health issue,” Dru wrote in an e-mail message to SOHH. “Upon returning from a 3 week European tour Black Moon and Boot camps front man, Buckshot suffered what appears to be a series of seizures. He was immediately hospitalized where he remains in stable condition.”
Dru also stressed the importance of Buckshot’s health.
"Got to see him today and he's doing OK but obviously needs time to recover."
Purchased tickets for tonight's show will be honored at the new date.
