Legendary rapper Scarface suffered irreparable damage to his kidneys after contracting the novel coronavirus in March.
Now, the 49-year-old rapper, born Brad Terrence Jordan, took to Twitter to ask for ‘volunteers’ willing to donate one of their healthy kidneys to him and he is willing to pay for it.
I need a kidney y’all any volunteers? B+ blood type.Scarface
Scarface made this post before his friend T.I. offered to buy someone’s kidney. Scarface first asked for someone to “donate” their kidney but then Tip offered “a bag” to anyone who donates.
I started the process for a kidney transplant, I appreciate the love! It should take me 2-3 months to see if I’m a good candidate, in the meantime you stay healthy, the list will open shortly [thereafter] and we can discuss who’s a match.Scarface
Earlier this year, Scarface revealed that he suffered kidney failure after testing positive for COVID-19.
I gotta change my entire diet, I gotta do dialysis four days a week, three hours a day. COVID attacked my lungs first, and then it attacked my kidneys and knocked them out. 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.”Scarface
