Philadelphia native and hip-hop icon DJ Jazzy Jeff suspects he has been suffering from COVID-19 after battling pneumonia in both of his lungs through most of the last month.
In a series of statements on Instagram, Jazzy Jeff explained that he has been experiencing many of the symptoms linked to COVID-19, including a loss of smell and taste. He did not reveal whether he has been tested for COVID-19.

"Pls say a prayer for the sick," Jazzy Jeff added. "It's a lot more than you know."
The Grammy-winning artist reunited with Will Smith for a DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince performance in Budapest last year during the premiere of Smith's movie, "Gemini Man." The two have played a handful of shows together over the past few years.
Will Smith has been doing his best to entertain us during the coronavirus quarantine, sharing silly videos about nightmares and dropping a Philly-themed, lo-fi study beats track to help you power through the tedium.
