Personal lifeEdit

InfluencesEdit

Maco cites Black Sabbath, Kid Cudi, Future and Curren$y, as major influences.[5]

Car crashEdit

On July 28, 2016, OG Maco was in a near-fatal car crash. Maco suffered multiple skull fractures, cracked vertebrae, a broken orbital, heart palpitations, and almost lost his right eye.[6][7]

Doctors say that OG Maco has recovered very well from his injuries. Although his Hip Hop career has been put on-hold and he is currently on hiatus. However, an official statement by OG Maco regarding the crash and words on the future of his music career have not yet been disclosed.

Despite earlier reports, OG Maco never lost his right eye. His eyesight only became extremely distorted, so he had to wear an eye-patch during his subsequent recovery.[8] A few surgical procedures on OG Maco's right eye by his doctors has corrected the eyesight and has proven successful, and OG Maco is still able to see through it. Many earlier reports claimed doctors replaced his apparent blinded eye with a prosthetic one; although these reports were later found to be misinformation or false.

Flesh-eating diseaseEdit

OG Maco was diagnosed by doctors as having a flesh eating disease known as necrotizing fasciitis which has left the rapper's face disfigured. OG Maco is currently taking antibiotics for treatment and hoping for speedy recovery.[9]
