Boosie BadAzz has never been one to hide his health problems over the years, speaking many times in interviews and on wax about his public battle with diabetes. Today, we’ve learned his health issues have gotten more serious: Boosie has kidney cancer. TMZ initially reported the news, and DRN has confirmed through our sources.
Boosie spent five years in a Louisiana prison on drug charges before being released in March 2014. His comeback album, Touch Down 2 Cause Hell, was released via Atlantic/Trill in May of 2015 and debuted and peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. His first show in New York City since his release, the day TD2CH came out, was cut short after one song as Boosie vomited on stage and walked off at Webster Hall in Manhattan.
Straight out of Ohio, it’s the next big thing to hit the scene, Acey, and his hot new video for his single, Believe Me.
At the moment, Canelo is the odds favorite by bookmakers in Las Vegas, but Jay Z can take refuge in knowing that De La Hoya has had a terrible time picking winners in recent years — mostly due to De La Hoya’s long history of backing his Golden Boy fighters to beat Floyd Mayweather.
Both Jay Z and De La Hoya have come to terms on the bet with the loser having to donate their $100K to the charity of the winner’s choice. That pretty much makes it a win-win for everybody. If Miguel Cotto wins, De La Hoya will make his donation to the Shawn Carter Foundation (effectively a college scholarship foundation for low income youth), and if Canelo wins, Jay will make his contribution to the White Memorial Medical Center’s cancer unit.
Authorities are investigating a double stabbing that occurred early Saturday morning at the Millstone home of rapper RZA.
Police are saying little about the early-morning incident and it could not immediately be determined whether RZA, whose real name is Robert Fitzgerald Diggs, was home at the time.
New Jersey State Police responded to a report of a stabbing at a Deer Trail Drive home at 1:18 a.m. on Saturday, said Sgt. Gregory Williams, a State Police
When authorities arrived, they found two men stabbed, he said.
He said the two men sustained serious injuries and were taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune. The hospital did not have a patient named Robert Diggs there on Saturday.
RZA is founder of the Wu-Tang Clan, a Staten Island-based group that broke into the rap scene in 1993. He has produced nearly all of the group’s albums and many of its members’ solo works.
Williams did not provide details of the incident and would not confirm the name of the homeowner, but property records show the 7,934-square-foot house, set far back in the woods off Deer Trail Drive, is owned by Diggs.
Williams said the investigation by the department’s Major Crimes Unit is continuing.
According to newly released documents from the federal trial of two Staten Island drug kingpins, the FBI was investigating whether the Wu-Tang Clan in 1999 ordered the killings of two drug dealers.
