Louisiana rap legend Boosie Badazz recently revealed that he was diagnosed with kidney cancer and that he’d be undergoing surgery to treat it. Thankfully, the nephrectomy (removing half a kidney) was a success, as doctors are saying that the cancer is out of his body, but the surgery itself didn’t come cheap.
TMZ reports that since Boosie doesn’t have health insurance, he had to pay for the surgery out of pocket – a whopping $90,000. He’s been grinding since 2000 with much success, so he was able to foot the bill without much of a problem. He’ll be recovering in a cancer rehab facility for the next three weeks, but he’s calling this “a minor setback for a major comeback.”
