German Rapper Has His Half Skull Removed – A huge portion of a German rapper’s skull had to be surgically removed after his homemade drug laboratory exploded according to Dailymail.
Niko Brenner, whose rap name is Rapper Dr. Knaff, was thrown from his Cologne recording studio in February 2017 after bottles containing highly flammable propane gas exploded.
Knarf was using the gas in a DIY drug laboratory to create a highly concentrated form of cannabis extract.
In a report by Cologne Express three years ago, they said after the incident, Brenner was ‘panicked, burning and without hands’ running across the street.
Even with a low survival chance due to the injuries sustained, he kept himself alive. He was taken to a specialist burns unit due to 40 percent of his skin being scorched.
The rapper narrating his experience said:
“That (the skin burns) was nothing compared with what came after. I lay for three months in a coma during which I suffered four strokes, my brain has grown so much that some of the bone had to be removed”
The rapper admits that he made mistakes before the explosion. Due to ongoing criminal procedures, he did not want to comment further.
Despite having a large portion of his skull missing and being paralyzed on one side of his body, the now 35-year-old remains positive.
He is learning to walk again and will release a new album entitled ‘Prometheus’ in 2020.
