Boosie Badazz has been having one hell of a hellish year. Not only has he put himself in the hot seat with various hurtful comments and/or opinions that he’s made, but the Louisiana rapper has also found himself, like many, suffering due to the global crisis. Badazz was unfortunately also the victim of an incident that occurred while attending a candlelight vigil for rapper MO3 in Dallas, Texas.
Badazz’s sixth studio album in 2015, Touch Down 2 Cause Hell, was the album that he felt would be an eye-opener for not just his real supporters and fans, but the whole world. The album’s debut proved to be strong, coming in at number 3 on the Billboard 200. However, celebrations were mired with a myriad of issues, some, unfortunately, concerning his health.
The “Wipe Me Down” rapper was set to perform at Webster Hall in NYC for his debut New York performance, but had to, unfortunately, cut his set short within 90 minutes of setting foot on stage. The crowd had been alerted of his being sick and feeling that he had needed to go to the hospital by the concert’s emcee’s and hosts of Power 105.1’s Breakfast Club, DJ Envy and Angela Yee, and that he insisted on continuing the show.
Badazz was only able to handle his featured verse on K Camp’s remix to “Cut Her Off” before having to run off stage. A video of the rapper exiting the stage also showed him vomiting as soon as he left. Although at first unspecified, it was later revealed it stemmed from his issues with being diabetic, and he had skipped taking his insulin thanks to his bags being transported to Philadelphia and not New York.

Just saw Boosie throw up 1 song into his set and now we’re just listening to all of his old songs so this might be my favorite concert ever.— ItsTheReal (@itsthereal) May 27, 2015
As if that were not enough to try and destroy Badazz, he months later revealed to his followers that his health issues morphed into something much more serious: Boosie learned he had kidney cancer.
While the label as well as his family both expressed concerns for the rapper to let the public in on his battles with his health, he, operating in a vulnerable space, felt the need to ask for prayers. His belief in the power of prayer he says is “stronger than anything”.
The cancer maybe under control, but his issues with diabetes are still prevalent. Earlier this year, Boosie posted a photo of a “Lantus” injection pen that is commonly used to treat diabetics, being that he apparently happened to be in an area of Florida where he wasn’t able to access he medication. “Anybody n DUVAL AREA WITH THIS LANTIS MEDICINE DM ME YOUR NUMBER SO WE CAN MEET,” he wrote. “I REALLY NEED THIS.”
Thankfully an angel in the form of a random woman who was able to procure the medication for the rapper contacted him and drove three hours in order to get it to Boosie in good time at his house. “I gotta tell this story bruh — how good God is,” the rapper said in an Instagram video. “I ran out of insulin yesterday and this lady drove three hours to bring me insulin. When she got here, I tried to pay her. She said, ‘I don’t want your money.’ She just took a picture and left. This lady went around the corner and won $10,000 on a scratch-off.”
Now, Boosie is back in the same predicament that he was in April, this time however in a different city, and with the stakes being much higher due to his recent injuries. “I NEED IF U N ATL dm @nightlyfedtone CASH ON DECK,” he shared in a now deleted post. In order for him to heal fully, his insulin levels need to be correct at all times. Knowing this information, fans have begun to show massive concern within the comments. “His leg ain’t gone heal if y’all don’t get this,” one fan wrote while another added, “Get at boosie on the quicks y’all ! And y’all have a blessed day.”
We’re wishing Boosie a speedy recovery and hope that he’s able to get his hands on the medication swiftly.
