Rapper Scarface has undergone a kidney transplant after suffering kidney failure due to COVID-19. His son, Christopher Jordan, is the one who provided the kidney.
Scarface was transparent about his nearly fatal battle with COVID-19 last year. The "Smile" star says that the disease attacked his lungs, causing him to develop pneumonia followed by kidney failure. He underwent dialysis but shared in October that he needed a kidney donor. Scarface took his search to social media, calling on his followers to consider donating. Fellow rapper and longtime friend T.I. even offered to reward a potential donor financially.
On Wednesday, fans learned that the search came to an end when Christopher shared a photo of him and his father in the hospital after the procedure.
"Surgery went well. My dad is thriving kidney is working great!!!! Thank you all for the prayers," he wrote
J Prince, the founder of Rap-A-Lot Records, who signed Scarface's group the Geto Boys, called the father and son "an example of unending love."
Let's wish Scarface and his son a speedy recovery!
