Soulja Boy recently opened up about the unexpected death of his younger brother earlier this year. The rapper revealed the devastating effect the tragedy had on his family, with his older brother taking the loss especially hard.
"Family loss for any person is hard," Soulja Boy said. "It just was hard for me because, you know how that goes, you just want to be with them one last time. It was unexpected, I was messed up. I'm still messed up about that to this day. My family, everybody was financially straight when the funeral came. My father he was really messed up about it, and that created more drama and problems in the family. My other brother threatened to take his life, and that just really had my family just real messed up."
"It's real hard for me but I just been trying to do the best that I can," he continued. "I wanted to be with my family and not do this music but we got an understanding. I have to keep going for my fans and keep doing music and movie to provide for them [my family]. But it's just like man, once that happens it makes you question a lot of things. Everybody gotta go one day; I just look at it like I just want to make him [my brother] proud."
