Grammy-winning rapper T.I. wants to help save Scarface‘s life even if it means digging into his own pockets. The King of the South has come forward to offer a monetary reward for anyone able to help with a kidney donation.
TI Helps Scarface In Kidney Donation Pursuit
Tip went to his Instagram page to speak up. T.I. shared a screenshot of Face’s plea for a volunteer to come through with a kidney. The rap heavyweight also encouraged people to directly hit up his inbox.
“Love & Prayers To Da Homie @brothermob We got a bag for a volunteer… who B+? Serious inquiries only hit my dms to verify ya B+ blood type.” -T.I.’s Instagram
Scarface’s COVID-19 Aftermath
Face recently battled a coronavirus infection and ultimately pulled through. However, the rap star later suffered kidney failure in April 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)
Hip-Hop Supports Scarface
In March 2020, UGK’s Bun B and Slim Thug went to their Instagram pages to speak out. In addition to wishing Face well, they also made sure to let fans know the COVID-19 spread was real and not to be taken lightly.
“He’s a friend, OG, big brother, collaborator and then some. This almost killed him. It’s not a joke y’all. He’s got a wife and little girl at home. Ain’t nobody getting paid to say they have this from what I see. But some won’t take it serious until it hits close to home. Stay safe. Get well soon @brothermob” -Bun B
“Y’all still think it’s fake???? Go to @williedlive page and watch the whole video Prayers for my bro @brothermob 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾” -Slim Thug
Face Speaks Out
In March 2020, Face Mob linked up with Geto Boys’ Willie D to break the COVID-19 news to fans. Face appeared on a livestream and explained his situation to his longtime supporters and concerned peers.
“This whole three weeks has been an ordeal – it’s the craziest sh*t I’ve ever done and seen in my life. I’ve been to the point where I just felt like I was gonna die, bro. I threw up so much – like hot sauce. Like your gases and sh*t in your stomach, acids, it’s hot. I didn’t have no food in my stomach. It was coming up like vile – they wasn’t my first test I took. They had lost my test some kind of way and then they swabbed me again right before I left and called me last night around 11:30 and said I had coronavirus.”
Scarface also provided some details about getting tested. Face also told people not to take any chances and consider the COVID-19 epidemic serious.
“The hospital rooms didn’t have toilets. Your sh*tter was the end of the cabinet. Like a jail house. You pull it out and a metal toilet comes out – I got the feeling really, really, bad, Will, and it started off with pneumonia in both of my lungs and then three, four days later my kidneys fell. Then three or four days later after that they tell me I can’t move and I’m quarantine. … They’re saying stay away from everybody. You can’t come visit me now, bruh. … We gotta stay away from each other. … It’s a cold thing, big homie. It’s cold, man.”
