Philly rapper Freeway is gearing up for a kidney transplant. After being diagnosed with kidney failure in 2015, the artist has been balancing his career and new-found health requirements.
Fortunately, the “What We Do” rapper’s situation is looking like it’s about to get easier, as he has “one the best transplant surgeons in the world” on his side.

Those living with kidney failure are required to partake in four-hour-long dialysis treatments, a process which does the kidneys’ job detoxing the body waste, two to three times a week. Being in a clinic, hooked to a machine, several times within seven days would take a big chunk out anyone’s schedule.
“When it first happened, you know, I had to slow down a lot. I’m one them artist that do shows all the time, so once the situation first happened, I had to slow down a lot you know and just basically reset,” Freeway told Vlad TV after a year living with the condition. Though at that point he said “everything’s good,” things may soon be a little better.
This week (May 2), the rapper posted an Instagram photo from Johns Hopkins hospital, captioning it, “They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.”
“Feeling hopeful!” he added. “At #jhonhopkins talking New Kidney.”
Amdist hopes that he’ll have a shiny, new organ real soon, fans are showering Freeway with love and support.
“Prayers gone up,” wrote a fan on Instagram. “Prayers my brother all the way from NC,” wrote another.
“Riding witcha lil bro.. Thoughts and Prayers,” added an Instagram user. Another commented, “Positive vibes sent your way.”
Others simply filled his comment section with praying hand emojis.
