Christian Rapper R-Swift and DJ Wade-O reached out to the community on Facebook to share a personal message about his wife having cancer,
below is his message:
I was debating whether or not I should send out an official press release, but that’s just not my style. I’ve always been honest and transparent with you, so why stop now?
I’m writing this letter to ask everyone for prayers as my family and I are facing a tough season. Last month, my wife Stacey had to go to the ER after experiencing discomfort and fevers. We were thinking maybe it was a stomach virus or something; well, after a few hours and some tests, the doctor came back and informed us that it was cancer. This news shook us to the core; the first few days were filled with frustration, fear, questions etc. It was also filled with prayer, comfort and overwhelming support from our family, friends and local body.
For the past month, we’ve spent so much time in the hospital with tests, surgeries, etc. Though this experience is very frustrating and has taken a toll on us mentally, physically, financially and emotionally, we find our sanity and peace in the fact that we serve a sovereign God who is greater than cancer or any affliction that we may face.
We are optimistic and believe that God will bring us out of this on top. Today was the first chemotherapy treatment; she will do chemotherapy for 6-8 months. I ask you for your prayers as we continue to walk this thing out. I thank you all so much for the continued prayer and support throughout the years.
From DJ Wade-O & Staff
We’d like to encourage everyone who is able to pray and give financially to help support R-Swift and his family during this season. This situation will likely keep Swift off of the road for much of the next year. In addition, he will have increased responsibility at home while his wife recovers as the Graham’s have 3 daughters, Shayla (8), Jasmine (3) and Summer (1).
As many of you will recall, 4 years ago, R-Swift lost his son Rodnie Jr.. While this is yet another challenge for him and his family, we believe that R-Swift and his family will come out of this situation stronger than when they entered it.

A.C. da Preacha – Our Love Affair (Proverbs 18:22)
Donnie McClurkin, a gospel singer who says God delivered him “from the sin of homosexuality,” is firing back at Washington Mayor Vincent Gray and other officials after he says he was removed from headlining a concert at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial.
A Grammy winner and pastor, McClurkin was scheduled to perform at the concert Saturday evening to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.
Several gay rights activists objected to his participation ahead of the event.
Doxie McCoy, a spokeswoman for Mayor Vincent Gray, says McClurkin decided to not perform because the purpose of the event was to bring people together.
But in a video statement, McClurkin says he was “asked not to attend” and was uninvited from the concert. McClurkin says there should be freedom of speech “as long as it’s done in love.”
The controversy stems from McClurkin’s past statements that he was “delivered from the sin of homosexuality.” – what’s referred to as being an “ex-gay.”
Some community activists said the mayor made the right move.
But some black ministers from around the city lobbied the mayor to keep McClurkin on the program.
