Veteran rapper Freeway often posts motivational quotes and images via his Instagram account. The Philadelphia native took things up a notch yesterday (December 26) after posting a photo from the hospital while receiving treatment and shared more of his inspirational fare.

Free has been very public about his battle with kidney failure and he has been awaiting a donor match. He posted a photo while receiving dialysis treatment and captioned it with a positive message of hope and determination.

“Don’t give up. There are too many nay-sayers out there who will try to discourage you. Don’t listen to them. The only one who can make you give up is yourself,” read the photo’s caption.

The 38-year-old wordsmith released his last project, Free Will this past April.
