Scarface In Need Of A Kidney And Asks For Volunteers On Social Media
Sadly, it looks like the iconic Geto Boys rap group member Scarface (born Brad Jordan) is having more health issues on the heels of recovering from COVID-19. This time he’s reaching out and asking for help on social media.
The “Mind Is Playing Tricks On Me” rapper took to his Twitter account to post,
I need a kidney y’all any volunteers? B+ blood type
Fans on Twitter jumped to his aid, either offering information on healing himself or personally offering their own kidney. Read some of the reactions below.
In March, Scarface revealed that he had contracted the coronavirus, recalling his experience during an interview with his fellow group member Willie D. He said,
“It’s the craziest sh*t I’ve ever done and seen in my life. I’ve been to the point where I felt I was gonna die, bro. I threw up so much until it was like hot, hot sauce. Like your gases and shit from your stomach. I didn’t have no food in my stomach, it was coming up like vile. I couldn’t breathe, Will.”
The native Houston rapper further expressed to his viewers,
“Don’t play no games with it. I haven’t been nowhere. I’ve been in my house. I ain’t been on no planes, I ain’t been in no restaurants… People out there thinking this shit is a game? You don’t want to play with this.”

During his recovery process, on April 27, the rapper updated the public on his health condition, revealing the complications he’s had due to COVID-19.
“I’m glad to be alive. I fought COVID double bilateral pneumonia – both lungs – and kidney failure in my house.”
Scarface, who had recently returned home from the hospital at that time, added
“I gotta do dialysis four days a week, three hours a day. That’s taking all my blood out, cleaning it and putting it back in my body.”
It was then that he revealed the seriousness of his kidney condition. He admitted
“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.”
Hopefully he receives the kidney that he’s looking for. Let’s send him some love and encouragement below.
