Lil Boosie revealed that he has been diagnosed with kidney cancer in an Instagram post on Wednesday.
The 33-year-old rapper — who has lived with diabetes for many years — asked his fans for prayers in a caption that has since been deleted:
"I need all my fans to pray for me. Doctor just told me I have cancer on my kidneys. Prayer is power that's why I'm letting the world know prayfaboosie"
Here's the original post:
The Louisiana native kept the image of him at the breakfast table, but was instructed to take down the announcement by his team, according to TMZ.
Boosie spent five years behind bars for marijuana possession and probation violation and was released in March of 2014. A year later, he became ill during a performance when his diabetes meds didn't make it to the right location.
Yikes. We hope he's alright!
