Former B2K member Raz-B is in a coma and is currently on life support at a hospital in China, according to TMZ. His condition is said to be serious, and doctors are testing for brain activity.
The 28-year old singer, whose real name is De’Mario Monte Thornton, was allegedly performing Thursday night at a club when a fight erupted in the crowd. Raz B attempted to break up the fight and was hit in the face with a glass bottle. He was detained at a local police station for questioning but was released and transported to the hospital to repair a gash in his lip. A minor surgery reportedly went fine and Raz B was sent home that night but returned Friday morning when he didn’t wake up.
It seems that the doctors tested brain activity and reported the situation as dire. Raz B is said to be on a ventilator and is slipping in and out of consciousness.
Raz-B is most well known for being a member of B2K. The R&B group, which included Omarion, Lil’ Fizz and J-Boog, produced hits like “Uh Huh” and “Bump, Bump, Bump” before splitting in 2004. Since them the solo artist has been producer.
Our prayers are with him.
