The father of Nicki Minaj tragically passed over the weekend and another rap star is also mourning the loss of a parent.
Jeezy, who many fans watched online in a Verzuz showdown a few weeks ago, has revealed in a heartfelt Instagram post that his mother is no longer amongst the living. She has passed away and fans of Jeezy will recall the time he revealed his mother was ill in his interview with The Breakfast Club.
Jeezy has not yet given a cause of death or the day she died. The rap icon did however provide everyone a touching public statement about his mother.
“You taught me to be a man when I was a boy. Made me man up be a father when I was a kid,” he said, starting his statement. “Raised me to be a natural born leader when I was lost. You lifted me when I was down. Inspired me when I had no inspiration. Always told me I was Bigger than my circumstances. My Super Hero.”
He continued, saying, “One of the only people in the world I could trust. When I had nothing or no one, I had you Mamma. You was hard on me. I thank you for that. You gave me confidence when I didn’t have any. Made me feel like I can put the world on my back and walk barefoot. You never judged or down talked my dreams. Or my downfalls. You just encouraged. I thank GOD you got a glimpse of the Man and Woman you raised and all the good we gave to world all because you gave it to us.”
“I know God has you now. We let heaven borrow our Angel. Kiss my brother Michael. Tell em we love him. And to take care of you. You are in a better place. Dancing and singing to your favorite songs. With that beautiful smile on your face…” he said towards the end of his statement, before ultimately concluding with, “I will continue to make you proud. I LOVE YOU MOMMA.”
Condolences go out to Jeezy and his family at this time of their mourning.
