Cancer is one of the monsters ravaging mankind. More and more, we see people of various ages announcing that they have been diagnosed with some form of cancer. Thankfully, folks like Lil’ Boosie (who announced that he had kidney cancer recently), are able to get the proper surgery and get the disease removed. Others are not so lucky, as evidenced by the death of rock star David Bowie, who we lost this week. Sadly, it has been revealed that notable No Limit emcee, actress and restaurateur Mia X has been diagnosed with the terminal disease.
A couple days ago, Mia celebrated her birthday with friends and family. Notable rapper/actress Yoyo was on hand for the festivities. She posted great flicks of Mia, herself, Lady of Rage and Roxanne Shante at the party smiling. However, on one of the pictures, she captioned:
A table full of Queens all here for the care of our sister@themamamiax who’s been thru radiation .. We’re helping her fight the fight and celebrate her birthday! I need you to come out and party with us! Yall know what it is!
According to theYBF, Snoop Dogg also took to IG to offer his support in the form of a comment under one of Mia’s pictures, saying he and his family are praying for her.
If you don’t know, Mia X has her place in hip-hop history. She was the First Lady of Mater P’s iconic No Limit Records, with four solo albums to her credit (Unlady Like and Mama Drama went gold). She also had supporting roles in the bulk of No Limit Films (I’m Bout It, MP Da Last Don, I Got The Hook Up, Hot Boyz and more). Now, she owns and operates a New Orleans soul food spot called Starz Food & Spirits (located at 10711 Chef Menteur Highway).
Our prayers are with Mia X and we are hoping for her to bounce back!
