Houston rapper Scarface has a real one in his children. The hip-hop veteran has reportedly received a kidney transplant from his son and shared the breaking news to the world.
Rap-A-Lot Records icon and boss J Prince went to his Instagram page to deliver the massive reveal. Prince acknowledged just how much it means for Face Mob’s son Chris to come to the rescue.
“Congrats to my brother @brothermob & his son @_iamchrisjordan for giving his father one of his kidneys. I celebrate with the both of you for being an example of unending love. Chris, a lot of people talk about how much they love your dad, but you have separated yourself from the talkers by your actions. We all salute the both of you and wish you both a speedy recovery ❤️🩹.”
Scarface’s son Chris also went to social media to confirm the huge operation and reveal the positive update.
“What a journey it’s been. Surgery went well my dad is thriving kidney is working great!!!! Thank you all for the prayers. @brothermob love you family.”
In October 2020, Face Mob went to his Twitter page to let followers know he must wait a few months to find out if he’s a solid candidate for a transplant. He also announced blood type doesn’t play a part in who can donate.
“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.. … Just found out blood type don’t matter if you are a donor they will match me with my kidney in exchange so anyone can be a donor, can’t thank y’all enough” -Scarface’s Twitter
The same week, both rap star T.I. and Fat Joe delivered heartwarming messages to Face. They both offered to pay eligible people to come through with a kidney donation.
“This real sh*t right here prayers for the legend @brothermob we gotta bag for any volunteers 🙏🏽 @troubleman31” -Fat Joe’s Instagram
In 2020, Scarface battled a coronavirus infection and ultimately pulled through. However, the rap star later suffered kidney failure in April 2020 during the COVID-19 battle and in June said his kidneys never fully recovered.
“COVID attacked my lungs first, and then it attacked my kidneys and knocked them out,” he told the outlet. “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.” (NY Post)
