Legendary rapper Kurtis Blow has been having heart problems for years now. Reports from TheJasmineBrand say that Hip-Hop mogul Russel Simmons recently stated that Kurtis will be having open heart surgery.

Russell Simmons shared a lengthy post about his hip-hop friend on May 7th, 2019;

Fuck, Captain Kurt damn!!! He just informed me that prayers are needed ..Please put @kurtisblow THE ORIGINAL “KING OF RAP” back into your prayers. He has been called to second emergency open heart surgery. Kurtis Blow is a survivor, but this is not good. I say this to all who loved his music, his heart is bigger than his music. His family is a testimony to his goodness. His loving wife of at least 35 years and beautiful children are examples of his willingness to give. Let’s all give him the prayers and our blessings. Update from his wife Shirley “Kurtis’s heart is beating on its own. They are closing should finished closing in less than 2 hours. Glory to God Glory to God hallelujah hallelujah” 🙏🏽❤️
Shirley Let us continue to pray

 

Sources say Blow suffered from a hemotoma; a solid swelling of clotted blood within the tissues. He had a surgery back in 2016 for that issue. He recently went back to the hospital to meet up with doctors at UCLA a few days before Russell posted this heartfelt post.

Prayers up for “The King of Rap.”
