Last week Scarface took his search for an organ donor to social media. “I need a kidney y’all any volunteers? B+ blood type,” the legendary hip hop artist tweeted. Born Brad Jordan and raised in Houston, he was a founding member of the hip hop group Geto Boys. Scarface confirmed in April that he had suffered kidney failure while battling COVID-19.
“COVID attacked my lungs first, and then it attacked my kidneys and knocked them out,” he told the Fox NewsDC “I got full lung recovery, but my kidneys never came back … I’m still a little weak. I don’t have a lot of strength in my legs yet. I still haven’t got full taste back and sense of smell yet. But I am glad to be alive.” Thousands of heart clicks and hundreds of well wishes followed his plea on Twitter .
After his public call out he updated his Twitter by tweeting out “I’ve started the process to get a kidney transplant, I appreciate the love! it should take me 2-3 months to see if I’m a good candidate, in the meantime you stay healthy, the list will open shortly there after and we can discuss who’s a match.. again I appreciate that y’all..”
Praying for a speedy process and a healthy recovery.
