This is the worst feeling I have ever felt. My pops taught me everything on how to be man and how to do right. I was by his side all the time nikka was my best friend…how do you cope with this shyt ???
I'm very sorry for your lost breh. Losing a parent is like losing a big part of you. It feels so surreal like "I can't believe this just happened to me!" I couldn't stop crying weeks after weeks

I lost my father at age 15 from leukemia, skin cancer, and some say "witchcraft". My father was also my best friend the person I was close too. He was my mentor, my therapist, my sidekick. Introduced me to bunch of music genres. Most of my personality came from my pops. A lot of people was cool with him cause he was cool, charismatic and a leader.

Our time on this earth is limited. Appreciate the life lessons your father taught you. Cherish the memories you and your father had. Your father looks up to you to continue the family legacy. May your father rest in peace gone but never forgotten.

My condolences dealing with the loss of a close being like a parent is hard the easiest way is to try and live your life in a way they would be proud of . Make them live on through their lessons to you. Keep something alive from them in you wether that is a song, a recipe, a story, etc keep it alive and pass it on to the next generation. Specially now during thanksgiving. Try to look forward and not back too much.

@WhatsGoodTy R.I.P. to your father and I hope that your emotional wounds heal with time.

I lost my father in July. Fortunately (depending on one's perspective), he went quick. I spoke with him on the phone on a Sunday and he was gone on Wed/Thurs. He was 73, so as messed up as it sounds, when folks get to be around that age, we already know that death may be around the corner. Still, despite my father being in his 70s, he didn't act like it.

I'm the only "child" that hasn't cried about it yet. I even tried to cry in certain times because "it seemed like the right thing to do", but it hasn't come out. I literally feel like there is a trigger set off that everytime I'm about to cry about something related to my father, I get a big smile over my face instead because I start to reminisce about one of the wild or crazy things/stories from my father's life. He was a character. You say your pops loved battle rap, so that means he was really young at heart too.

If you gotta cry, then by all means do, but also next time you feel sad, remember the reaction that he had that time that y'all watched one of your favorite battles together. It should make you smile instead.

Like other posters have said, not everyone was fortunate enough to have a father, but if your father was a "Great Man" then that's something that you can always be proud of, now, and forever. Stay strong, because you know that's what he would have wanted.

The beauty of him having a relationship with his child is that now he still gets to live on thru you!!! Let him be with you in spirit. Start a record now writing down all the favorite things you want to make sure you still remember about him 10, 20, 30 yrs from now. Also reach out to his other loved ones whenever you are missing him.
