Bone Thugs-n-Harmony member Krayzie Bone is reportedly in critical condition in a Los Angeles hospital, fighting for his life. The artist, whose legal name is Anthony Henderson, was admitted to the hospital on Friday, September 22nd 2023 after coughing up large amounts of blood.
According to reports, Henderson had been battling sarcoidosis for several years. Sarcoidosis is a rare inflammatory disease that can affect any organ in the body, but it most commonly affects the lungs. In Henderson’s case, the disease had caused inflammation in his lungs, leading to a weakened immune system and increased risk of infection.
It is believed that Henderson’s sarcoidosis may have contributed to the recent bleeding incident. Upon his admission to the hospital, doctors performed a CAT scan, which revealed a leaking artery in one of Henderson’s lungs. Emergency surgery was performed to repair the artery, but the bleeding could not be stopped.
Henderson remains in critical condition and is currently on a ventilator. He is also sedated to help him rest and recover. His family and friends have asked for privacy during this difficult time.
The news of Henderson’s hospitalization has sent shockwaves through the hip-hop community. Many artists and fans have taken to social media to express their support and prayers for Henderson.

What is Sarcoidosis?
Sarcoidosis is a rare inflammatory disease that can affect any organ in the body, but it most commonly affects the lungs. The disease causes the formation of granulomas, which are small clumps of inflamed tissue. Granulomas can cause a variety of symptoms, depending on the organs that are affected.
In the lungs, sarcoidosis can cause shortness of breath, coughing, and wheezing. In the eyes, sarcoidosis can cause blurred vision, eye pain, and redness. And in the skin, sarcoidosis can cause red bumps, rashes, and discoloration.
The exact cause of sarcoidosis is unknown, but it is believed to be an autoimmune disease. Autoimmune diseases occur when the body’s immune system attacks its own healthy tissues.
Treatment for Sarcoidosis
There is no cure for sarcoidosis, but there are treatments that can help to manage the symptoms of the disease. Treatment for sarcoidosis typically involves corticosteroids, which are drugs that help to reduce inflammation. In some cases, other medications, such as methotrexate and azathioprine, may also be used.
In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove granulomas or to repair damage caused by the disease. For example, if granulomas are blocking the airway, surgery may be necessary to clear the blockage.
We send out prayers to Krayzie Bone and hope that the talented rapper pulls through.
