American rapper Fetty Wap’s life has been turned upside down in the blink of an eye.
The dedicated dad announced on Instagram that his little brother Twyshon Depew passed away.
As he paid tribute to the man who lost his life at a young age, Fetty blamed himself greatly for not being the ideal big sibling.
He hinted the departed soul led a shoddy lifestyle that eventually cost him his life.
“I love you lil bro, my twin. Rest in peace. I failed you bro and I am sorry... I keep calling your phone and you will not pick,” he cried out.
The 1738 hitmaker said he had hoped to get his little brother out of the hard-knock life before it was too late and always prayed he would not have to mourn him through social media.
Twyshon was shot in the chest on Thursday, October 15.
Reports indicate the father of one was found unresponsive on the street.
According to South Passaic Daily Voice, the 26-year-old was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead a few hours later.
Still in denial
Fetty asked his fans to stop inquiring whether he was okay.
“Of course I am not okay,” he bellowed in his instastory.
The rapper revealed he had no idea how to break the news to his nephew and his heart was crushed all over again just as he was beginning to heal.
Cares for his family
In a past interview, Fetty admitted he always provided for his family.
According to the celebrity, he was responsible for his mum, brother, little sisters and father.
He did not see the sense in being rich and leaving his kin to wallow in poverty.
