Kid Capri is finally opening up about his year-long health battle now that he is cancer-free.

The legendary hip-hop DJ took to Instagram on New Year’s Eve to share a post from the hospital announcing his cancer-free diagnosis.

“God is great! 3 days ago, I found out that I’m cancer free!” he wrote in the caption.

“Been dealing with it all year while I was doing everything I was doing for hip hop 50! I had 2 surgeries and never said anything publicly about what I was going through, I’m not an attention whore, so I didn’t want to say anything, so that it didn’t look like i wanted pity, but now that it’s over, I figure I let my fans and friends know, I’m very happy, this year I did a lot, but come 2024, I’m getting even crazier than I did in 2023!! Thank you God!”

Kid Capri had been in high demand throughout 2023 celebrating hip-hop’s 50th anniversary. All the while, the New York native was battling for his health behind the scenes.

It was likely his passion for hip-hop that kept him going when it came to his nonstop live shows as well as repeated visits to the doctor’s office.

“I genuinely love what I do. I know that me being a DJ in this business was always an uphill battle,” he told UpRoxx in July.

“They always look at DJs as the bottom of the totem pole, except when hip-hop first started, DJs were the front guy; records came in, and the rapper had to be the front guy.”

“They pushed the DJs to the back,” he added. “So that’s when I became my own one-man band and didn’t need anybody in front of me. I could do every[thing] myself and I just needed the world to see it.”
