Philadelphia rapper, Freeway, recently celebrated the fifth anniversary of his life-saving kidney transplant. In 2015, Freeway was diagnosed with kidney failure and underwent an organ transplant three years later, allowing him to continue living. Grateful for his second chance at life, he shared his journey on Instagram, stating, “If you’re facing renal failure and dialysis, remember, there is hope. Keep your faith in God and stay focused.” Inspired by his battle, Freeway launched Freedom Thinkers Academy, which is thriving and empowering students.
In addition to his advocacy work, Freeway continues to make music. He recently joined Marv Won on “Roc Nation Brunch” and collaborated with Dame Dash’s band, The Black Guns, on the track “365.” Dash announced that the two will release a collaborative project of the same name this year. Freeway expressed his delight in working with Dash and The Black Guns, stating, “I want to give a special shout-out to OSG for facilitating our connection. Together, we embarked on a new educational journey, and it’s truly inspiring to witness the incredible progress we’ve made.” To commemorate the anniversary of his transplant, Freeway plans to livestream his experiences with kidney failure and dialysis every Monday to raise awareness and provide resources to viewers.
Overall, Freeway’s story serves as an inspiration for individuals facing similar health challenges, emphasizing the importance of hope, faith, and determination.
