A C-list rapper is hiding a secret that he hopes his fans never discover while he's alive.

The rapper, who has already used up half of his nine lives, fears his secret will get out whenever he's hospitalized.

He was diagnosed with the virus that causes AIDS several years ago, and he stubbornly refuses to take medication that will extend his life.

The average prognosis for individuals who are infected with HIV/AIDS is 8-10 years if they don't take antiretroviral HIV treatment regimen daily.

The rapper's close family and girlfriend are aware of his diagnosis. They even tried contacting a famous actor who recently came out as HIV-positive to speak to the rapper.

This rapper is confident that he can suppress the virus through a combination of diet, colonics, and a variety of herbs and weed.

However, his physical signs and symptoms have become too obvious for his fans to ignore.

Other celebrities who are living with HIV/AIDS include NBA icon Magic Johnson, musician Chuck Panozzo, actor Billy Porter, actor Charlie Sheen, Olympic diver Greg Louganis, actor Jim J. Bullock, figure skater Rudy Galindo, and more.
