Prayers up for former No Limit rapper Mia X who is reportedly battling cancer. According to fellow rapper and good friend YoYo, the rapper-turned-restaurant-owner recently underwent chemotherapy.
On Friday night, Jan. 9, Mia hosted a huge birthday bash in New Orleans with guests YoYo, Lady Rage, Roxanne Shante and more in tow. But, it was during a pre-party lunch, where YoYo revealed the sad news via social media, “A table full of Queens all here for the care of our sister @themamamiax who’s been thru radiation .. We’re helping her fight the fight and celebrate her birthday! I need you to come out and party with us! Yall know what it is!”
It appears, however, friends close to the hip hop head have known for quite some time. In fact, rapper Snoop Dogg sent his well wishes to the star in a comment under one of her holiday photos via Instagram, reports TheYBF. Needless to say, Mia was all smiles surrounded by friends as she celebrated an important birthday milestone for any cancer survivor: her 46th.
Mia X joins a long list of stars, from TV anchors to athletes to actors, who all have battled cancer. Hit the flip for all the deets and show Mia some love in the comment section below.
