BO$$ "Born Gangstaz" album coverFemale rapper BO$$ is in need of a kidney transplant.  The 90’s rapper suffers from renal disease and is hoping to find a donor through the internet.

From AllHipHop.com

A source close to the rapper said BO$$ is currently undergoing dialysis on a regular basis, but is now in need of a transplant.

She turned her attention to Facebook.com, after hearing a local news story about a man who found a donor, after his wife posted an urgent message on Facebook.

Friends of BO$$ recently launched the “Rappers Need Kidneys, Too” campaign with Todd Davis and 8055 Records.

The campaign is aimed at spreading the word to all potential donors for BO$$, in addition to raising awareness about kidney diseases within the rap community.

BO$$, born Lichelle Laws, had a minor hit in 1993 with her single “Deeper.” Her rap career was derailed after it came to light that she was born into an upper-middle class family and had gone to private school.
