Earlier this year, a social media post of Young M.A went viral after fans noticed that she was not looking like her usual vibrant and healthy self.
Fans also pointed out that the "OOOUUU" rapper had lost a concerning amount of weight.
This prompted many probing questions from the online community. The rapper has since addressed the videos and is working on new projects. Here is everything we know about the situation so far.
What happened to Young M.A? Rapper shares a health update with fans.
The social media post that went viral wasn't the first one that prompted concern. In 2022, fans became alarmed when someone shared that they had seen Young M.A (real name: Katorah Kasanova Marrero) riding a wheelchair in the mall with a cane on her lap.
However, after a viral video of Young M.A getting her hair down sparked more concern from her fans, the hip-hop artist shared a health update.
"I recently was hospitalized and was successfully treated for several conditions," she told XXL in March 2023. "I'm doing better now. It will take some time, but I'm on the road to recovery, and look forward to the future."

The rapper first shared the exciting news on her Instagram page with her 7 million followers.
"It’s official! I’ve been working on my own RP server for the last couple months and it’s finally in motion," she captioned the post on Instagram. "It will be so much exclusive content on here, from New release music, videos, streaming, merch, and most of all gaming in the “RedLyfe District” with me."
Young M.A's net worth is estimated at $2 million.
