These rappers need to be more concious of the messages they send out. God is real. "God forgives, I dont" is his anticipated new album. Today God has showed you he is real and that we all are suppose to be forgiving. The tongue is a mighty thing. I am happy he is doing well but take this time a do a little reflecting. Record deals dont make you invincible.

@Julian cedrone and the rest of you rude and heartless ********. Damn shame that people can talk about people when then sick or unconcious, dead or whatever and the way ya'll talk sooooo reckless about any human that has had a life threating experience. Until you have been in that situation ya'll need to gain a heart! SMH....
