Lil Scrappy
Rap star Lil' Scrappy -- who's worked with Lil Jon, 50 Cent, Three 6 Mafia and more -- was hospitalized in Atlanta yesterday after suffering a nasty asthma attack ... TMZ has learned.

Scrappy tells us ... "I damn near died ... if it weren’t for my driver, mom, and rap artist I would have been dead."

The 28-year-old says he had been drinking pretty hard Monday night ... and when he woke up Tuesday morning, he could barely breath and couldn't talk -- "I felt like I was dying."

Fortunately, Scrappy's people rushed him to Emory University Hospital ... where he was treated and released. Scrappy says he now owns a "breathing machine" and tells us, "I will never leave anywhere without it again."

I'm sure the breathing machine probably consist of some sticky icky and some fluid fill 2ft jar with an electronic lighter at the end.

It's OK, because he now has a "Breathing Machine". LMFAO - This guy is a stone no talent, no brains, no body, and you are actually printing this crap like it means something.
"I damn near died ... if it weren’t for my driver, mom, and rap artist I would have been dead." .... Why do I get the feeling they are all the same person.
