I met @iammiajaye on an airplane with her beautiful children on her way to see her man, laughing and talking the whole flight.

When I found out her man was Dolph I fanned tf out.

The grace she exudes told me a lot about him. ?? We were cool ever since… to hear this news breaks my heart.

The way folks moving these days seems unreal. Instead of being inspired or uplifted by someone’s success there is nothing but jealousy and envy and this hurts me esp for our community.

Everybody is trying to make it and is carrying other people on their back when they get wherever they’re trying to go.

When this happens you don’t just take away that life but you hurt a million other people they were carrying. I’m so sorry for your loss Mia and I’m sorry we lost you Dolph.

Sending the most love I can conjure to these beautiful children that now have to grow up without their father. ?

Rest in everlasting peace my brother.
