Nearly one year since searching for a kidney donor on Twitter, Houston rapper Scarface is now recovering from the life-saving operation after receiving a kidney from his son.

In October 2020, Scarface took to Twitter in search of a potential kidney donor after suffering irreparable damage to his kidneys since contracting COVID-19 in March 2020.

After just two days, the rapper followed up with an update, writing “I’ve started the process to get a kidney transplant, I appreciate the love!”

On Wednesday, the rapper’s son, Chris Jordan, posted on Instagram that his dad was “thriving” after undergoing a kidney transplant, in which Jordan was the donor.
