A RAPPER has said a huge portion of his skull was removed after an explosion while making drugs  Dr Knarf was thrown from his recording studio into a courtyard, in Cologne, by the blast and the swelling from injuries meant a huge part of his skull had to be removed  The 35-year-old, whose real name is Niko Brenner, had allegedly been producing drugs in the basement of the studio at the time  A combination of highly concentrated cannabis extract mixed with butane gas exploded from the bottles in which it was kept  According to investigators and doctors, his chances of survival were slim but he kept fighting for his life despite the horrific injuries  Forty percent of his skin was burnt in the explosion and he has now spoken about his ordeal  “That was nothing compared with what came after. I lay for three months in a coma during which I suffered four strokes,” he said  “My brain has grown so much that some of the bone had to be removed.”  The rapper admits that he made mistakes before the February 2017 explosion  Due to the ongoing criminal procedures, he did not want to comment further.  Despite having a large proportion of his skull missing and being paralysed on one side of his body he remains positive  He is learning to walk again and will release a new album entitled “Prometheus” in 2020
