Ok let me stop all of the IGNORANCE. First of all those of you who are just getting up on Phife and his medical condition, are really showing how hip-hop you are not. "When's the last time you heard a funky diabetic", to quote some of his old lyrics.
Next, when having diabetes one of the first things to be affected are the kidneys. I think I even read where someone said "he hasn't been taking care of himself. Your kidneys protect your blood from waste, so if they are not working, you do the math. I feel very bad for dude and I will keep him in my prayers, I grew up on his brand of hip-hop.
Wendy Williams said some really wild *** about this man before someone put her up on his ILLNESS. I know people in this day and age are all about themselves, but think about how this sick man felt when he heard someone say that he looked as if he was smoking crack in the desert with no shade. Of course when she was told of his condition she was so apologetic, but feelings are like his condition not easy to heal. 1 love yall
