SO SAD! Rapper Styles P’s Daughter Commits Suicide and Styles Has A Touching Message For Everyone!

styles-p-inner-city-ghost

We learned this week that Styles P not only had a daughter, but she sadly took her own life last month at the young age of 20.

For those who don’t know Styles P, his real name is David Styles and he was one of the original members of “The Lox”. Back when “Diddy” was “Puff Daddy” and he primarily made music, The Lox along with The Notorious B.I.G. and a few other celebrities enjoyed amazing commercial success on Diddy’s label Bad Boy records. I feel like an old man typing this….If you clicked this story because you saw the name “Styles P” then you already know all of this. In fact like me, you probably lived it. For a small period of time in the late 90’s, The Lox, BIG, Ruff Ryders, and DMX was hip hop.

RAPPERS GROW UP

Styles has been around the game for a long time. He has grown up in hip hop and that fast life but he was also able to make some decent investments. This is important as you read through his open letter he talks about money, chasing it, and its perceived importance. It’s relevant to know that Styles P, is still a millionaire. In 2011 he opened a juice bar called “Juices for Life” in the Bronx and he released an album in 2014 called Phantom of the Ghost. All in all he has a net worth of $3 million.

RECENT SUICIDE OF HIS DAUGHTER

It’s not clear weather this is his “actual” daughter or step-daughter. Although the two have a familial resemblance in the photos posted, in one of the posts that Tai Hing writes, on her social media page, she says,

We may not be blood but that is my father

This is an indication that quite possibly she is not his daughter by strict definition of the word, however Styles’ loss is not diminished by this fact and his Open Letter’s message should not be either.

Weather its writing hard core lyrics or a touching message to his fans, Styles P has a way with words. Remember, mental illness, depression and suicide is real!

Here is the Open Letter from Styles P. ~R.I.P. Tai Hing~  (Posted both in an out of Instagram for those with cheap mobile phones, I got you!)

11296864_500003750165492_1175146230_nI rarely speak on my personal issues and i usually express my pain through music but today I will share a little with you last month my wife and I lost a daughter and my son lost a sister . My baby girl took her life and there are no words to describe the day to day pain we have to endure and maintain through but in dealing with pain you find yourself dealing with the creator and asking questions and going through emotions most would not understand. So I’m taking this time out to express a few things to y’all because life is short and we are not promised tomorrow. I like to deal with simple math I know I am 180- 180+ but im trying my best to live on the positive side of things . I have truly tried to live up to the code of being a gentleman and gangster to fullest of my ability.

I have been chasing the dollar bill since I was 12 years old I hustled I worked legal jobs and even manage to make my dream of making it as a rapper come true I have popped bottles before it was the thing to do , I have owned beamers, benzos , rovers, trucks etc etc etc I have lived in the ritz ,owned condos , houses traveled a lot of places etc etc etc but I can honestly tell you don’t none of that shit add up or equal to love!! I have lost my brother , father , aunt , grandmother in law and too many good friends/ brothers and now my daughter!!!! But the only thing that can be done is to leave it in the creators hands . But I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t take this time out to say from the most humbled part of my heart and soul to say to yall that the dream most of us chase is not !!I repeat is not !!more valuable than the love you get from your family and friends it may seem like it is but it ain’t they print money and make material shit everyday but once you used a love one that’s it the spirit is with you but you will miss the physical and Won’t be able to speak to them how you want to until you get home to the other side. So I just want to tell yall keep it family 1st and don’t get lost and lose your focus the fam is way more important than anything else …. We lost a daughter but gained an angel . Love is love ..ghost

Like I said, Depression and Suicide are real and often go ignored, especially in the black community. If you don’t think anyone cares you are wrong. It’s never as bad as you think. You can always call the national suicide prevention hotline 1 (800) 273-8255 or sh*t, send me an email, I’ll write back: cosmo(at)tvsmacktalk.com
