Boosie Badazz is cancer free.
The Baton Rouge rapper hopped on Instagram on Tuesday to celebrate the news, while also revealing that he recently found out that his “doctor/surgeon” passed away last year unbeknownst to Boosie.
“Stayed up all night praying for these results,” Boosie wrote. “CANCER FREE! GOD [is] GREAT, BUT HE [TESTS] YOUR FAITH ALL THE TIME!” “[I] was ready to see my cancer doctor/surgeon today, but I was told he passed last year. Thank [you], Dr. Wood, for always making me laugh when I was down. [You] were the best.”
Boosie continued by sharing a pre-surgery story that captures the type of man his doctor was.
“I remember you rubbin my head when I was cryin before surgery,” he said. “You ask me why I was crying n I told U I was thinkin about all the wrong I’ve done n my life n you said Mr. Boosie, God forgives n don’t worry, I’ve done more surgeries than you’ve done concerts.”
Boosie was diagnosed with kidney cancer back in 2015. That December, he updated fans on his condition after undergoing a successful surgery that removed the cancer from his kidney. Months later, Boosie blasted people who claimed the rapper didn’t actually have cancer.
“I’m tired of these stupid mothafuckas saying I ain’t have cancer sending me DMs asking why am I lying saying I had cancer,” he wrote on Instagram at the time. “Who wants to fake or lie about something like that not me ,not a real one wtf u mad cause I asked for prayers n gottem /I don’t get it / well mf’s this my cancer scar a week after my surgery (FACTS).”
