BOSS Healing Treatment After Stroke

We are raising money for the Artist BO$$.  She is a Hip Hop Legend that was signed to Def Jam West.  The first female artist signed to the label's West Coast Division.   Bo$$, is an American rapper from Detroit, Michigan. Her debut album, Born Gangstaz, reached number three on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart in 1993. Her name is sometimes stylized as Bo$$.

Boss relocated to Los Angeles after graduating high school and completing 2 years at Oakland University where she pledged Omega Amethyst.  She was spotted by DJ Quik who stuck her on a track with AMG. Russell Simmons liked the track and promptly signed her to Def Jam West. Her debut album Born Gangstaz was released in 1993, and the singles, "Deeper" and "Recipe of a Hoe", hit number one on the Billboard Hot Rap Tracks chart.

In the mid-1990s, she moved to Dallas, Texas, and went on to be a radio DJ. In 2001, she collaborated with Krayzie Bone on his album Thug On Da Line. In 2004, she released a mixtape titled "The Six Million Dollar Mixtape" produced by Def Jef.

It was revealed in May 2011 that Laws is in need of a kidney due to her suffering from renal disease, a disease that rendered her kidneys useless for processing toxins in her body.  In 2017, She suffered a major stroke and seizure.

We are now trying to see if the family can get a specialized procedure for her.  The procedure is costly and we wanted to reach out to her extended family, her friends and fans, to ask for assistance with helping her to be blessed with this procedure to help her to get back to her health.

The funds are needed as soon as possible to set her up for the procedure.  After this procedure she will be on the kidney list for a transplant from a donor, once we receive one.

We are humbly requesting your help family.  Please give whatever you can.  We are grateful for anything that you can do.
