Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas has opened up about his recent battle with testicular cancer.

The 41-year-old rapper says he checked into an emergency room in 2014 after having pain throughout his body after a show and found out that he had stage 2 testicular cancer.

Taboo's struggle with cancer has inspired a new song, called The Fight.

He underwent surgery and a 12-week course of chemotherapy before being declared in remission last year.

He says all proceeds from the single will be donated to the American Cancer Society. Taboo was named an ACS ambassador in May.
