Rapper Krayzie Bone gives health update after coughing up blood

Weeks after concern for Krayzie Bone’s health was raised as he revealed he was hospitalised, the Bone Thugs-n-Harmony rapper has given fans an update.

The 50-year-old was rushed into care at the end of September after he reportedly coughed up large amounts of blood. 

Krayzie had a leaking artery in one of his lungs following a CT scan, HotNewHipHop reported and needed emergency medical attention.

In a terrifying turn, doctors were initially unable to stop the bleeding and Krayzie – real name Anthony Henderson – was placed under sedation.

He was ‘fighting for his life’ but Krayzie has given a reassuring update to worried friends and fans on Instagram.

Along with a selfie in the hospital, he wrote: ‘Just fought for life Literally for 9 days straight.

Krayzie was still surrounded by medical equipment in his picture but was sat up and out of bed, looking like he was on the road to recovery.

He continued: ‘I only won the battle this time because I know Jehovah God was with me every step of the way fighting for me. Never take life for granted enjoy it while have you have it!

‘Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers trust me I needed every last one of them.’

The musician was previously diagnosed with sarcoidosis, which is a rare condition that causes small patches of swollen tissue, called granulomas, to develop in the organs of the body.

Months before the hospitalisation, Krayzie had reportedly quit smoking too.

Krayzie was a founding member of legendary hip-hop group Bone Thugs-n-Harmony with Layzie Bone and Wish Bone.

The group won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a duo or group in 1997 with tribute track Tha Crossroads, which was dedicated to NWA star Eazy-E.

A decade later, Krayzie won the same award for his collaboration with Chamillionaire, Ridin.

Metro has reached out to Bone Thugs-n-Harmony’s representatives for comment.
