In a recent health update, Blanco Brown revealed that he has hit another bump in the road on his journey of healing. He took to social media to share that his leg had given out, leaving him with a bandaged shin.
“Sometimes you never know how strong you are until you have to be… I’m ok now but my leg gave out on me tonight and that had to be one of the scariest moments since my accident, to not have control of something you’ve done since the day you graduated from crawling… Thank God I had a wall close by! Continue to keep me in y’all prayers and yes I have been taking care of myself, I even travel with a compression boot, tonight my leg just decided to fail me… Pretty frustrating but I know it’s only another test! #Purpose No signs of blood clots so I’m grateful…” he wrote in the caption.
Tons of friends and fans of Brown took to the comments to show their support and wish the singer another speedy recovery.
This unfortunate incident comes a few years after Brown was involved in a head-on motorcycle accident in 2020. On Aug. 31 of that year, his Indian motorcycle collided with a pick-up truck in Atlanta and resulted in a slew of serious injuries on his end, including a shattered pelvis. He later explained that it was his helmet that saved his life.
“Firstly, I have to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for sparing my life and keeping me whole!!! The fact that I’m here and still in my right mind is God’s proof— I feel so blessed!” Brown said in a social media post following the accident.
“This helmet cushioned my impact and without it things would be more complicated, all my riding gear showed true to its quality @indianmotorcycle,” he continued. “To my fans, friends and family, I love you from the top to the bottom of my heart! I wanna thank everyone for all of the prayers and support! It means the world to me.”
His record label said in a previous statement that he also shattered his wrist, arms and legs in the crash. Because of these “significant injuries,” he underwent a 12-hour surgery and stayed in the hospital for about a month after the accident
“I fought for my life, I fought to see all y’alls faces and those smiles again, and I fought to share my purpose… God ain’t done with me yet, we’re just getting started! #trailertrap #love,” Brown concluded his Instagram message.
Earlier this year, “I Need Love” singer gave another, more positive update on the healing process of his pelvic injury. The x-ray image he posted to social media showed the screws that were placed in his pelvis.
His caption read, “You can’t tell me that I ain’t a miracle!!!” writes Brown. “Music is my purpose… God told me personally!!! Naw I ain’t the worlds biggest superstar but I am! #TrailerTrap. This is just one x-ray of my many injuries and I’m still fighting through the pain!!!!”
Blanco Brown certainly continued to fight through the pain and has since gotten back to performing and releasing music. Starting on October 6, he will be headlining his own Monster Energy Outbreak Tour.
