Hospital reports say Bone Thugs-n-Harmony member Krayzie is "fighting for his life".
A bloody cough sent Krayzie, whose real name is Anthony Henderson, to the hospital on Friday.
Henderson's CAT showed a leaky lung artery. Emergency surgery failed to stop the bleeding.
Sarcoidosis, an uncommon inflammatory condition, covers Henderson's organs in lumpy lumps called granulomas.
Henderson is sedated and cannot breathe alone. Bizzy, another Bone, posted "Pray 4 Kay" on Instagram.
Krayzie turned 50 in June.After a promising year, the Bone Thugs' demise is devastating.
They had a street named after them in Cleveland as part of Hip Hop 50. Hip-Hop has blessed me.
I'm excited to see what the next 50 years bring after being here at the start and seeing every step. Hip-Hop will last, but it's still young.
