Krayzie Bone of the group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony was scheduled to tour certain areas of Canada this month, but due to health complications, had to reschedule. Over the weekend, it was confirmed that the rapper is battling sarcoidosis, which is an autoimmune disease that attacks the lungs and lymph nodes within the chest.
According to TMZ, it is believed that Krayzie suffered from a severe and intense case of pneumonia while making his way up North, and due to his weakened immune system caused by the sarcoidosis medication; it took a toll on his body. It was also confirmed that this medical condition is the same one that led to former comedian and actor Bernie Mac’s death in 2008.
The rapper is expected to reschedule the show post-treatment in Los Angeles, however in the meantime, Krayzie Bone sent out an informative apology via Instagram and Twitter:
“Canada thank you for your support sorry I had to cut it short due to sickness but I will be back to make those dates up soon! Much love.”
With the exception of Krayzie, the rest of the group is scheduled to perform four shows towards the end of next week in Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, and Missouri.
Best of luck to Krayzie Bone and we wish him a speedy recovery.
