Scarface has received a new kidney from his son. T.I. revealed the good news on his Instagram account. “My mentor @brothermob Got a new kidney... From his son no less...#GodIsGood,” he captioned a photo of the Geto Boys rapper in the hospital.
The “Guess Who’s Back” emcee has had kidney issues since his bout with COVID-19 last March. After testing positive for Coronavirus, he was placed on dialysis, a treatment that removes excess water and toxins from a person’s blood. The Houston rapper said he felt like he was going to die while experiencing his COVID-19 symptoms, which included nausea and loss of appetite.
Back in October, Scarface took to social media to ask if anyone with B+ type blood would donate a kidney to him. A few days after his tweet, T.I. offered a financial reward to anyone who was willing to donate the organ to his longtime friend. “We got a bag for a volunteer... who B+? Serious inquiries only hit my DMs to verify ya B+ blood type,” the “Whatever You Like” MC wrote.
Over the summer, Scarface revealed that his son Christopher Jordan would be donating a kidney to him after finding out that he was a match. Chris gave an update about the kidney transplant to Instagram on Wednesday (Sept. 15).
“What a journey it’s been,” he captioned a photo of himself with his father in the hospital. “Surgery went well, my dad is thriving, kidney is working great!!!! Thank you all for the prayers. @brothermob love you family.”
The REVOLT team is wishing Scarface and his son a speedy recovery. Check out Chris’ post below.
