The Bad and Boujee rapper’s letter read, “My heart is shattered and I have so many things to say, but I can’t find the words. I’ve been going to sleep and hoping that all of this is a dream, but it’s reality, and reality feels like a nightmare.”
Kiari went on to say, “I wish I could hug you one last time. Laugh one last time. Smoke one [sic] last time. Perform one last time. I know someone with a soul like yours is in heaven now. I hope you can see how much we love you and miss you. You have left a hole in my heart that will never be filled.”
Then, he asked his fans for strength for Takeoff’s family. He ended his letter by writing, “Even though I know you will always be with us, throw me a lil sign or a beautiful dream. I love you forever, 4L and after.”
