Rapper Scarface makes desperate plea for kidney donor after COVID-19 battle
Scarface is taking his search for an organ donor to social media.
“I need a kidney y’all any volunteers? B+ blood type,” the 49-year-old rapper tweeted Wednesday.
Houston-born Brad Jordan, who co-founded the legendary hip-hop crew Geto Boys with rappers Willie D and Bushwick Bill, confirmed in April that he had suffered kidney failure amid battling COVID-19. (His former bandmate Bushwick Bill died of pancreatic cancer in 2019.)
Scarface confirmed to Fox 5 DC in June that his kidneys never fully recovered and he was on dialysis.
“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.”
Thousands of heart clicks and hundreds of well wishes followed his Twitter plea. Reps for Scarface did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.
