A source from YG speaking to Soompi (about the rapper's current health condition) said, "T.O.P has been taken to the Intensive Care Unit and is receiving intensive care".

A source close to Choi also told JoongAng Ilbo, that, "The examinations are still ongoing, but we are now speculating that it was a drug overdose. Please wait for developments". "It looks like he took more medication than usual", the officer said. He took this on Monday night and till next day noon he had not woken up.

The 29-year-old rapper initially denied smoking marijuana, but admitted to smoking marijuana twice after he tested positive for marijuana use. "I will reflect on my wrongdoing over and over again". He was stressed out due to the many controversies that have emerged recently.
