Singer-songwriter Mike Posner recovering from rattlesnake bite”

Sharing a video of himself rapping while in his hospital bed, Posner wrote: "I knew walking across America was going to be risky".

The 'I Took A Pill In Ibiza' artist is now in the middle of a walk across North America - he left New Jersey in April and was expecting to reach the Pacific Ocean at some point in September, but progress was halted following his unfortunate run-in with the snake.

Posner shared video from the hospital to which he was airlifted, explaining that the bite occurred during his 16th mile of the day.

He has shared a video of his rehab on Saturday evening, accompanied by the caption "Gonna rebuild with patience and equanimity".

Thankfully, Posner was able to get the anti-venom treatment in time, though he won't be able to continue his cross-country walk for a few weeks while he recuperates.

"Shout outs to G and Mike from the chopper team and Bo and Cassie and Whitney (my nurses)", Posner tweeted on Thursday. The injury will have hime sidelines for a few weeks, but he says he's getting back on the road as soon as he's able to walk fully again. Can't wait to get back on The Walk! But for now, he said that he is taking a break from the walk to enjoy "complete bed rest and air conditioning". "✨" he wrote in another post. "I'm walking to find out who I will become". In 2016, Posner's song "I Took a Pill in Ibiza" reached No. 4 on the chart.

Posner said. Mike has since posted a clip of him on IG trying to just walk to the bathroom in his hospital gown.

On July 11, when Posner crossed from Missouri into Kansas, he posted a song with Ty Dolla $ign.
