How awful. Just one day before Thanksgiving, Lil Boosie reportedly revealed that he has kidney cancer — then allegedly deleted the shocking announcement from his Instagram.
Lil Boosie, 33 — also known as Boosie Badazz — has reportedly been diagnosed with cancer. A screen grab from his Instagram allegedly shows the rapper announcing the scary diagnosis to his fans and followers, but now the caption has mysteriously disappeared.
“I need all my fans to pray for me,” Lil Boosie, who some may know as Boosie Badazz, allegedly captioned a photo of himself eating on Instagram on Wednesday, Nov. 25, reports TMZ. “Doctor just told me I have cancer on my kidneys.” The announcement came just one day before the Thanksgiving holiday, and many of his fans have been leaving concerned comments on the photo. However, one look at Boosie’s Instagram reveals that the photo is now captionless.
The alleged caption ended with Boosie asking fans to pray for him, including “prayfaboosie” which appears to be the suggested hashtag to use. Many of the rappers fans have already started using the tag on Twitter, as you can see here. Comments continue to flow in on the photo even though the alleged caption has since been deleted, and the report claims that it’s because Boosie’s team — manager, publicist, etc. — were NOT happy with his decision to reveal the scary news.

Boosie Was Recently Released From Prison
Fans of Boosie might remember how exciting it was when Lil Boosie was unexpectedly released from prison early, even after serving a five year sentence for drug charges. The release came in March 2014, which is also when he released his first post-prison song, “Same Game.” It was reported at the time that Boosie had written approximately 1,000 songs during his time behind bars.
Our thoughts remain with Lil Boosie as well as his friends and family during this difficult time.
