The star was taken to hospital after collapsing following a strenuous session in the studio, working for four days straight. He thought he was suffering from exhaustion - and was shocked to discover he had meningitis.
Beatz tells MTV,
"My immune system was low from not eating right. But I wasn't paying no attention. I'm going to the crib and I had a hard time getting out of my truck. I get out of the seat and I'm damn near limping. I was barely making it up my steps. I damn near fell in the bed and my wife was like, 'You have to go to the doctor immediately.' They had to carry me downstairs ... got to the hospital, they stuck a needle in my spine. I escaped some s--t.
That changed my life, trust me. I'm happy to be able to run around with my son. Imagine I couldn't even run around with my kids? God gave me one more chance to get my s**t right.
