Styles P Opens Up About His Daughter Committing Suicide
Rapper Styles P usually doesn’t share his personal life with his fans, but on Sunday (July 26), the LOX member revealed that his step-daughter, Tai Hing, committed suicide last month.
In a heartfelt missive he shared on Instagram, Styles writes about the pain he, his wife Adjua and sister-in-law Adila have been going through since losing Tai.
“I have lost my brother, father, aunt, grandmother in law and too many good friends and brothers and now my daughter!” he writes in the caption of his post, which features a collage of him and his daughter. "But I wouldn't be me if I didn't take this time out to say from the most humbled part of my heart and soul to say to yall that the dream most of us chase is not!! I repeat is not!! more valuable than the love you get from your family and friends."
"They print money and make material s--- everyday but once you [lose] a love one - that's it - the spirit is with you but you will miss the physical," he added. "And [you] won't be able to speak to them how you want to until you get home to the other side."
Styles ended his letter by telling his fans to always keep family first and although him and his wife lost their daughter, "they've gained an angel."
On Thursday (July 27), a vigil will be held for Tai Hing at White Plains School in White Plains, N.Y., at 8 p.m. ET.
We send our prayers to Styles P and his family during their time of mourning. We also want to thank him for sharing his personal story with us. Life is too short, stay focused and stay positive.
