Jeezy is mourning the loss of her mother.
The 43-year-old rapper took to Instagram to share a tribute to his late mother along with a photo from funeral services.
“You taught me to be a man when I was a child. You made me a man to be a father as a child. You raised me to be a born leader when I was lost. You lifted me up when I was depressed. You inspired me when I was uninspired. You always told me what I was. bigger than my circumstances, “Jeezy wrote.
“My superhero. I was afraid of nothing or anyone. No obstacle or setback. One of the only people in the world that I could trust. When I had nothing and no one, I had you mom. You were tough on me. I thank you for that.” .
Jeezy continued to credit her mother for her confidence and for giving her the strength and faith to overcome this. He also asked her to kiss her late brother, Michael, and “tell them we love him.”
“You gave me confidence when I didn’t have any. You made me feel like I can put the world on my back and walk barefoot. You never judged or spoke with my dreams. Or my falls. You just encouraged. I thank GOD. I got a glimpse of the Man and her. Woman you raised and all the good we gave the world because you gave it to us. My faith is strong. I know God has you now. We let heaven borrow our angel. Kiss my brother Michael. Tell them we love him. And that we take care of you. You are in a better place. Dancing and singing your favorite songs. With that beautiful smile on your face … I will continue to make you proud. I LOVE YOU MOM. FOR MY MOM’S BABY ❤️🙏🏾Don’t worry, I have Trina and the Family. Rest in Heaven our Queen 👸🏽 “, he added.
His date and cause of death are unclear, but in 2019, Jeezy shared that he had been battling undisclosed health complications.
Jeezy will likely lean on the support of his fiancee, Jeannie Mai, during this difficult time. The couple got engaged last March at the composer’s home in Los Angeles, during the height of the coronavirus pandemic.
Mai and Jeezy were linked for the first time in January 2019, and a source confirmed their relationship with ET in April of that year. The couple then made Instagram things official in September and have continued to share their love with the world ever since.
