Raz-B, whose real name is De’Mario Monte Thornton, was seen in a troubling clip he posted to Instagram where he spoke about how he wasn’t feeling safe ahead of an unspecified surgical procedure he had scheduled.
‘All day I’ve been trying to clear miscommunications up and I’m letting everybody know right now that – Joseph, I need you to call me right now – I don’t feel safe, I’m in Kansas City, I’m at the Hilton hotel and I’m telling everybody right now, Raz-B does not feel safe,’ he said.
He continued: ‘Put out an APB for Raz-B in Kansas City, I don’t feel safe, I don’t feel safe – I’m telling everybody right now I don’t feel safe.’
The Cleveland native captioned the unnerving clip, ‘My brother is full of s***!!!
‘I’ve been fighting to stay alive, I don’t wanna have this surgery here …’
He also posted the address to a hospital in Kansas City.
