Houston’s hip hop community and fans across the nation were shocked and saddened after legendary “Screwed Up Click” rapper ESG announced his cancer diagnosis last month. But in true “H-Town Strong” spirit, everyone rallied around the artist, whose real name is Cedric Hill, with words of support, well wishes and unlimited “prayers ups.”

In return, the “Swangin and Bangin'” freestyle king is showing that he is still swinging, hell bent on kicking cancer’s ass and getting back to normal.

According to his latest posts on Facebook, he’s fighting through the tough times and has lost a lot of weight, and is now following doctor’s orders on much-needed rest until he returns to full strength. And by the looks of things, he’s going to do just that, because anyone who knows ESG’s story, knows that he is a true fighter.
