“The People’s Champ returns to thriving music career after surviving a brain aneurysm and open-heart surgery in 2012. The Seattle community is thrilled over the recovery of hip hop artist / storyteller Mr. Benjamin, also known as the People’s Champ. As covered in the Seattle Times, the star nearly lost his life after suffering a brain aneurysm, then battling sickness a few months after. This comes years after enduring 2 open heart surgeries by the age of 21. It’s a testament to his resilience as he has overcome so much in his young life. Ben Smith, professionally known as Mr. Benjamin and his family credit his remarkable recovery as a miracle. “I praise God that he allowed me to not only survive back-to-back illnesses but to aggressively continue in my music career—performing and touring,” said Mr. Benjamin. Currently, music enthusiasts can find his new digital single release, Diamond Shining, and his EP, Floc-A-Birds, on iTunes.”
