Metro Boomin took to social media to pay respect to fellow Atlanta creative and friend, Bankroll Fresh amidst his passing.
When news broke that rapper Bankroll Fresh was murdered outside the studio late Friday/early Saturday morning, the rap world have been taking this weekend to grieve. Many hip-hop influencers, including Metro, have paid their respects via Twitter. But, the 22-year-old producer chose to further elaborate his hurt and pay a proper (and heartfelt) letter to his dear friend.
“They took my brother Fresh and I’m hurt right now. very hurt…. Hurt is the only thing that’s been on my mind and heart since I was in magic last night. hurt was on my mind and heart when I woke up this morning. u always wanted to see niggas do good and be good. u used to tell us that once you good then we good and that you would do things the right way and not like the rest of these niggas. I’m hurt that this music shit has made everything so different and affected all of my personal relationships because of the high demand of work and the stress. but you were one of the few niggas that understood and still gave full support. I miss how fun and natural this shit used to be, before it felt like as much of a job as it does now. I miss recording songs at the house all night and u would just stay and sleep on the couch because you wanted to win as bad as I wanted to win. I hate how we did less and less as we both were getting more and more success. we were both so busy and never could even be in town at the same time anymore. But through that you were still genuinely happy for me as much as I was for you. I’ve worked so much over the years and neglected my personal life so much that I feel alone at times now. I shoulda been there and you shoulda been here. I didn’t even wanna do all this Instagram typing shit but Love your family and friends and never take them for granted. Call them and stop texting and tweeting all the fucking time. I’m only 22 and still growing and learning life. Fuck all that sad shit tho man I love u bra and will always appreciate your love support from day1.”
Bankroll, Trentavious White, was only 28-years old and has given us some of the hottest bangers in last few years including ‘Hot Boy’, ‘Takeover Yo Trap’ and the turn up anthem ‘Walked In’.
If anything, this situation has open our eyes to three things:
1.Love each other while we’re still here
2. The senseless murders have got to stop
3. Impact people’s lives for the good
