Known as “the monster” or “package” in the streets, HIV/AIDS is nothing to joke about but seems to be the #1 rumor spread by desperate rappers or groupies looking to end someone’s successful career.

Here are ten rappers who were accused of having HIV/AIDS. Take a look.

Gucci Mane

Gucci claims he smashed Tyga’s wife Blac Chyna. Tyga claps back and claims Gucci has HIV…which would mean….yea. Clearly Tyga didn’t think that tweet through and it soon vanished from his Twitter page.

Trick Daddy

Ricky Ross alleged that the beloved Miami rapper has AIDS, not Lupus on “Valley of Death” (“Deeper Than Rap”) and faced backlash for being messy. Trick fired back and denied the allegations but Rawse stood by his lyrics based on inside info he received.

Wiz Khalifa

Before he was happily-married to thicky thick snow bunny Amber Rose, he was reportedly smashing attention-thirsty groupies and spreading HIV. Yikes.

Nicki Minaj

There’s nothing funny about an HIV internet hoax but it happened to Nicki via fake press release and escalated quickly. After a few hours, there were thousands of #PrayForNicki tweets from her obsessive Barbz.


HIV rumors have haunted the freak nasty rapstress her entire career and probably won’t die.

Mike Jones

Mike…Jones? WHO? Yea, that Mike Jones lost over 100 pounds after falling off and rumors swirled that he had “the package.”

Shawty Lo

The fertile rapper currently suffers from Diabetes but was embroiled in nasty AIDS rumors fueled by his, uh, reckless bed-hopping + condom-allergies.

Slim Thug

According to anonymous sources, Thugga was smashing filthy groupies across Texas and spreading the monster. He eventually denied these rumors years later.

Vybz Kartel

The dark-skinned Dancehall artist-turned-light-skinned Dancehall artist was caught up in HIV rumors based on groupie claims. He denied them.
