    The Grammy-nominated artist took to Instagram to share his story.

    "I tested positive for COVID-19. I've taken many tests, as I've been out protesting, food drives, and of course I have a very young son at home, so I get tested periodically."

    "This time, unfortunately, it came back positive — 7.5 million Americans have contracted COVID. One out of 1000 Black people have died from it."
