(AllHipHop News) Philly MC Freeway is the latest rapper to come out in support of Hillary Clinton as he recently gave the presidential hopeful his seal of approval at Clinton’s West Philadelphia High School rally today.
According to Philly Mag, the MC cites Clinton’s stance on affordable health care as the main motivation behind his endorsement as he says he had to spend up to $600 a month for medicine before he had insurance.
Freeway was diagnosed with kidney failure last year and undergoes dialysis three times a day, four times a week.
He is also currently on the waiting list to recieve a kidney transplant.
“When I came out with my story of being on dialysis, I ran across so many people that were going through the same thing that I’m going through, explained Freeway.
“Through the grace of God, I was able to be successful and able to afford my health care,” the rapper continued. “But a lot of people can’t afford it. Even with my healthcare, my treatments are a little bit expensive.”
The rapper told reporters that he initially decided to support Hillary after attending the Democratic National Convention at the Wells Fargo Center last month.
Freeway’s endorsement may catch many by surprise because just four months, the rapper posed with Bernie Sanders and encouraged Philadelphians to support the Vermont senator in Pennsylvania’s presidential primary.
