Hip-Hop Pioneer Kangol Kid Is Fighting For His Life After Stage 4 Colon Cancer Diagnosis

U.T.F.O. legend Kangol Kid is in the fight of his life after receiving a Stage 4 colon cancer diagnosis in February. As Kangol explained in a recent Instagram post, his situation has grown increasingly dire over the last few months. On Wednesday (October 27), Kangol revealed he’d been hospitalized and would undergo surgery the following day.

“Please forgive me for not returning calls and more,” he wrote. “Things have become, and are becoming a little more difficult than imagined. I’ve been admitted again for complications related to my condition. Thank you to those who have been instrumental in my latest ordeal. Your actions have been well received and greatly appreciated. I am blessed to have you by my side through this. I love you all. ~Kang. #kangolkid #kangol #utfo #roxanneroxanne #fuckcancer.”

Veteran New York City Hip Hop promoter Van Silk, who’s in the middle of his own colon cancer battle, is calling for prayers.

“Wishing my brother Kangol beat this disease, as one myself dealing with colon cancer but Stage 2,” he tells HipHopDX. “Everyone, please support my brother Kangol Kid from UTFO who is actually battling colon cancer at Stage 4.  I could imagine what he going through. Sending my #Prayers.”
