Lil Durk is taking some time to recover after injuring him during his 2022 Lollapalooza set over the weekend.
The rapper shared an update on his health after being hit in the face following two quick bursts of pyrotechnics on stage while performing his Pooh schisty collaboration “Back in Blood.” In his Instagram post, Lil Dirk is shown sitting in a hospital room with a large blindfold on.
“Due to the onstage incident in Lollapalooza, Chicago, I take a break and focus on my health,” the rapper wrote.

“Wow, are you okay brother?” His DJ can be heard asking as the rapper stumbles and wipes his eyes. “He got a little closer. It didn’t look like it shot straight up. It looked like it shot in a different direction.”
