Kurtis Blow is asking for you to uplift him in prayer.

The Hip Hop legend took to social media to reveal he is at UCLA preparing to undergo surgery to repair an issue with his heart.

Kurtis asked everyone to please keep him in prayer.

To all my friends and family. I am in the hospital at UCLA Medical. I am preparing for an aortic artery repair procedure tomorrow morning. The procedure will stabilize the artery from further damage caused by the hematoma I contacted from my recent travels to China.

Dr. Kwon is an incredible surgeon with hundreds of these procedures under his belt. I trust that God will use him as a tool of success tomorrow.

Please keep me in prayer. I will see you all soon!!!! Encouraged!!! KB

You may recall, in November 2016, Kurtis suffered a heart attack and collapsed at a Woodland Hills, California bus stop during a disagreement with his son.
