COVID-19 was initially discovered in December 2019 in Wuhan, China, with the World Health Organization announcing a global pandemic by March 2020. Dr Creep, a rapper from Phoenix, Arizona, has gone viral after referencing the coronavirus illness in some odd songs eight years ago.
With the lyric, “2020 combined with coronavirus, bodies stacking,” he references the year 2020, the word “coronavirus,” and that there would be large deaths in his 2013 track “Pandemic.”
It’s no surprise that Dr Creep’s song is gaining a lot of attention, especially because COVID-19 became well-known in 2020 and has claimed the lives of 3.96 million people throughout the world since its discovery. The music video has already received over two million views on YouTube.
Dr Creep, on the other hand, claimed in a March 2020 Facebook post that everything 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.”
