Members Only rapper and XXXTENTACION affiliate Kid Trunks has revealed that while undergoing treatment for COVID-19, he discovered he has cancer.
Trunks took to Instagram to reveal his diagnosis after it was rumored he had passed away. The rumors came after a disturbing post was shared to the 21-year-old’s Instagram, but Trunks blamed that post on his account being hacked.
“My account was hacked posted on then the post was deleted u guys,” explained Trunks on his Instagram Story. “I wanted to keep silence about my situation but I’ll explain to you guys later today… I was near death but I didn’t die! Thanks you all for being there & caring.”
Later on, the “777” rapper added a follow-up post that went more into detail about his situation.
“I caught Covid 19 & while in the process of them checking my body out they found I had pneumonia cancer aka chest cancer #fuckcancer #Webuiltstrong.”

Kid Trunks last project arrived in 2020 with the album Moon, which featured Bass Santana and Mikey More among others. The project was far more melancholy than his previous work and he told the Miami New Times that the music was born out of a depressive episode that resulted in a suicide attempt.
