My little cousin recently passed away. I try to avoid posting about death and other sad things but I just wanted to express condolences to the rest of my family who may be reading this. In the future, I will avoid posting such content here.
Like many other up and coming teenage rappers, he was initially inspired to rap because of me. Because I live in California, I am not exactly familiar with all that happens out in Oakdale, Louisiana but from what family has told me, he took his work seriously. His own studio and everything.
We all know that it is super difficult to convince me to rap with you on a song. About a week before his death, a family member called and asked if I would get on a song with them. It was weird because though I am always inclined to decline, I said yes....not maybe, or, perhaps, but Yes. I was down.
I never got to record that song..
My cousin, on the other hand, recorded his part and left the rest of the song open for me to record over but I never received the song being that he had just finished his part. Situations like this make me realize the influence that I have. To quote Peter's uncle, with great power comes great responsibility and I want to assure you, whoever is reading this, that given the right circumstances, I can provide a quality product as a source of inspiration and/or education. This event has really affected me and I am sorry. We will meet once again. To all of my family, I love you.
