Rapper Krayzie Bone ‘in hospital’: Bone Thugs-n-Harmony star ‘in life-threatening condition’ | Ents & Arts News


Krayzie Bone, of the rap group Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, is in a life-threatening condition in hospital after reportedly coughing up blood, according to US media.

Allhiphop.com reported the artist, whose real name is Anthony Henderson, checked himself into a hospital in Los Angeles on Friday.

The publication said the rapper suffered from a condition known as sarcoidosis, which is an inflammatory disease where the immune system overreacts, causing clusters of inflamed tissue called granulomas.

It added Henderson had a CAT scan, which found an artery leaking into one of his lungs, and underwent surgery – but it failed to stop the bleeding.

Sources said he was on a breathing machine and sedated as of Sunday.

Sky News has contacted representatives for Bone Thugs-N-Harmony for more information.

Bandmate Bizzy Bone used his Instagram story to send his warm wishes, writing: “Pray 4 Kray.

“Can’t sleep. Sometimes you just gotta pray.”

Basketball legend LeBron James is among those sending well-wishes to the 50-year-old. In a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, he said: “Prayers to Krayzie man!!!!”.

Fellow rapper Juicy J wrote on X, “Prayers up for Krayzie Bone”, while Oscar-winning artist DJ Paul said on Instagram: “Please pray for my brother Kray.

“We was just in the lab Wednesday recording, having fun, drinking his new IPA

“This is unbelievable.”
