“Waking up to this reality daily is heavy to bear. So many conversations I wish had gone differently. The arrogance to think ‘we still have time’. Will we ever get over ourselves sisaphila? I’m beyond grateful for what we created, Forbes. Not just songs, not just memories, but we actually changed people’s lives.
“I’m not sure which direction I’m headed, but every day I ask myself what would you do in this situation and without fail I just do it. I will not let your legacy go to waste bro. I’m fighting every day for the dream we shared. You believed so much in me, the least I can do is to believe in myself more.”
