Louisiana rapper Boosie Bad Azz is hoping to make his publicized kidney cancer a thing of the past by going in for surgery this week.

Check out Boosie Bad Azz’s cancer announcement on the next page…

Reports last month claimed Boosie’s team did not approve of him announcing his medical condition on Instagram.

We’re told Boosie’s team was not happy he revealed his condition … which is why the caption was deleted shortly after the initial posting. The photo of Boosie eating a meal remains on his IG. Boosie is only 33, but he’s been living with diabetes for years. He just got out of prison last year … after serving 5 years on a drug charge. (TMZ)

Boosie’s now-deleted Instagram post went viral across social media.

Prayers up for #Boosie who announced (and later deleted) that he was diagnosed with cancer #PrayforBoosie
