The Baton Rouge rapper, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, first reported the news via his official Instagram page before deleting it.
“I need all my fans to pray for me,” Boosie wrote. “Doctor just told me I have cancer on my kidneys. Prayer is power that’s why I’m letting the world know prayfaboosie.”
It seems Lil Boosie PR team was not pleased with how he broke the story and instructed him to yank it off Instagram, TMZ reported.
Lil Boosie was released from prison in March last year after serving five years for drug possession and probation violation. The rapper was also acquitted of a murder charge.
Get well soon Boosie.
