While previously speaking to Pix11 earlier this year, Kangol Kid talked about his diagnosis and said, “I didn’t believe it. That’s the last thing you want to hear. … when those words were said to me, I fell out inside. I stood up after a while, spoke to my friends who kept my spirits up through all of this and my mentality just changed, like, ‘You gotta fight this.’” Condolences to the family of the legendary artist.
