It’s been since September 2020 that legendary rapper Scarface of The Geto Boys, has been searching for a kidney after his kidneys never fully recovered and he was on dialysis. Now the wait is over. Fresh out of surgery, Scarface is recovering well after receiving his life-saving new kidney.
Born Brad Jordan, Scarface revealed in July that his 30-year-old son Brandon would be giving him one of his kidneys.
“A couple of days ago .. well Friday they called me and said I was a match with my son,” Scarface said over a Zoom call promoting he and Willie D’s brand new podcast, Geto Boys Reloaded. “So it’s any day now.”
Well, that day has finally come.
If you remember, the 50-year-old Houston legend was forced to be bedridden for weeks due to COVID and was isolated from his family. At one point, doctors determined he had kidney failure and needed a transplant. The search for a match began last Fall and ultimately, Scarface’s son Chris was a match.
“I need a kidney y’all any volunteers? B+ blood type,” Scarface tweeted earlier this year before his son stepped up and came to the rescue.
“COVID attacked my lungs first, and then it attacked my kidneys and knocked them out,”
Scarface told HipHop Wired. “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’s son Chris Jordan took to Instagram to share the good news of his father’s successful surgery.
Rap-A-Lot founder J. Prince also shared a positive message updating fans about Face’s status, emphasizing how much his son Chris loves him.
“Congrats to my brother @brothermob & his son @_iamchrisjordan for giving his father one of his kidneys,” he wrote in the caption of the post. “I celebrate with the both of you for being an example of unending love. Chris, many people talk about how much they love your dad, but you have separated yourself from the talkers by your actions. We all salute the both of you and wish you both a speedy recovery.”
Chronic kidney disease, also called chronic kidney failure, involves a gradual loss of kidney function. Your kidneys filter wastes and excess fluids from your blood, which are then removed in your urine. Advanced chronic kidney disease can cause dangerous levels of fluid, electrolytes and wastes to build up in your body.
In the early stages of chronic kidney disease, you might have few signs or symptoms. You might not realize that you have kidney disease until the condition is advanced.
Signs and symptoms of chronic kidney disease develop over time if kidney damage progresses slowly. Loss of kidney function can cause a
