COVID-19 was first identified in Wuhan, China in December 2019, with the World Health Organization declaring a global pandemic by March 2020. A rapper from Phoenix, Arizona by the name Dr Creep is now going viral for mentioning the coronavirus disease eight years ago with some bizarre lyrics.
On his 2013 track titled “Pandemic,” he mentions the year 2020, the word “coronavirus” and that there’d be significant fatalities with the line, “2020 combined with coronavirus, bodies stacking.”
With COVID-19 becoming prominent in 2020 and taking 3.96 million lives across the globe since it emerged, it’s no wonder Dr Creep’s song is getting a lot of attention. The music video has now racked up two million YouTube views.
However, in a Facebook post shared in March 2020, Dr Creep insisted the whole thing was just a coincidence.
“There was already 6 or so coronaviruses in 2012/2013 when the Pandemic song was created and a coronavirus was being talked about a lot at the time,” he wrote. “As for mentioning 2020, well 2020-2030 was just significant years to me, as well as many other people that are educated on these esoteric topics. 10 years ago it was said that 2012 was nothing to worry about, it’s 2020-30 to pay attention to.
“To me, the lyrics are just more of a coincidence than a prediction as I don’t feel I was trying’ to predict anything, I just rapped about what I was watching. But call it a prediction, dumb luck, coincidence, remote viewing, predictive programming (lmao) or whatever you want.”
He added, “NO, I’m not a prophet. Not Nostradamus. No, I don’t make predictions and No I’m not a writer for The Simpsons. BUT, I have been studying docs and listening to ‘insiders’ & ‘whistle blowers’ in lectures and interviews for 10+ years and some things just add up and lyrics come out of it. NOT a prediction, simple as that.”
