Bone Thugs-N-Harmony rapper Krayzie Bone is fighting for his life in hospital after suffering from respiratory issues.
Krayzie Bone is reportedly on a ventilator due to his health issue, AllHipHop reports.
KB’s initial hospitalization follows his diagnosis of sarcoidosis, which causes inflammatory cells to form in different body parts.
After undergoing a procedure to stop internal bleeding, his condition worsened.
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony members, including Bizzy Bone, confirmed the news that the rapper was in hospital on social media this weekend, asking everyone to keep KB in their thoughts.
Other celebrities threw up messages of support, including Juicy J, LeBron James, DJ Paul, and others.
Meanwhile, hip-hop fans poured out support with tributes.
“Prayers to hip-hop legend Krayzie Bone from Bone Thugs N Harmony,’ one said.
Another fan added, “Y’all say a prayer for a real one’ as ‘Krayzie Bone is fighting for his life right now.”
One fan noted how Bone Thugs-n-Harmony helped them through hard times in their life.
“Hearing the news about Krayzie Bone, I just can’t believe it,” the user said.
“Please get through this bro, way too soon for you to go!’
Krayzie Bone’s family is reprotley wishing to remain private, but sources say KB is sedated and remains in Los Angeles-area ICU.
KB also received well-wishes from LeBron James.

LeBron, in 2017, told reporters why he was such a fan of Bone Thugs N Harmony.
“It gave us a sense of we can get out,” James said.
‘You have people in your backyard who have an opportunity to get out of a situation and make it mainstream and make something out of your lives by telling their story or playing sport. They gave us even more confidence.”
Krayzie Bone said last month that he’s ‘been blessed to be’ involved in hip-hop amid the genre’s 50th anniversary.
“To be here at the beginning, to watch and see every phase that it’s went through, I’m excited to see what the next 50 years is going to bring,” he said.
“Hip-Hop is definitely here to stay as a music genre, but it’s still so young.”
