Killer Mike Reveals His Son Will Receive A Kidney Transplant After 3-Year Wait

Rapper Killer Mike has shared the good news that his son will receive a kidney transplant after waiting three years for a new kidney. 

In November 2023, Killer Mike spoke on his son Mikael “Pony Boy” Render’s health. “I remember having to fly back from being on the road to be there when he first got his ports doing analysis. And his mom thought it was important and I thought it was important that I be there because there’s certain things just a dad should do,” he said.

Mike continued, “When a mom on a day-to-day basis is there and doing her thing, when sh*t gets tough it’s really time for Dad to show up.” The Grammy Award Winner shared the good news about his son being moved up on the kidney transplant waitlist. 

“God is good in that I’ve been afforded a lifestyle in which I can afford the burden I’ve been given and I just want for my child to get that kidney and to just be free as a bird,” he said. This news comes after the rapper took home three Grammys on Sunday night at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards.
