The hip-hop lawyer-turned-beloved host of The Combat Jack Show is battling colon cancer. Reggie Ossé (a.k.a Combat Jack) made the announcement on Monday (Oct. 23) to explain why he was absent from his show for the first time since its inception.
“In [seven] years of podcasting, I’ve never missed an episode,” Ossé explained in a statement posted on Twitter. “I got hit with some real life sh*t. I was recently diagnosed with Colon Cancer.”
Ossé was rushed to the hospital and had to undergo “pretty severe surgery,” but he’s “on the mend” and plans to get chemotherapy, in addition to “alternative” therapy.
