“I rarely speak on my personal issues and i usually express my pain the through music but today I will share a little with you last month my wife and I lost a daughter and my son lost a sister,” Styles P began an open letter posted to Instragram over the weekend. The hip-hop artist, primarily known as 1/3 of the group The Lox, spoke to not only the pain of losing his daughter, but also his growth as a man and how he’s come to learn what truly matters in life.
P, who writes that’s he’s been husting since the age of 12 to make his dream of being a rapper come true, has lost his brother, father, aunt, grandmother-in-law and countless friends, but there is no pain equal to losing his daughter. “My baby girl took her life and there are no words to describe the day to day pain we have to endure and maintain through,” he wrote, “but in dealing with pain you find yourself dealing with the creator and asking questions and going through emotions most would not understand.”
He is leaving it all in the Creator’s hands and offers this encouragement to his readers: “So I just want to tell yall keep it family 1st and don’t get lost and lose your focus the fam is way more important than anything else …. We lost a daughter but gained an angel . Love is love ..ghost”
