Ski Mask the Slump God has been through a lot in the last two years. He’s had to mourn so many of his loved ones. First, his best friend XXXTentacion passed away as a result of gun violence, being shot in broad daylight outside of a Florida motorsports shop and losing his life. Then, a producer from the Members Only collective, Khaed, lost his life. Finally, Ski had to say goodbye to another one of his close friends, Juice WRLD, who passed away from an accidental drug overdose.
Ski Mask has lost a lot of people and he has been fighting a silent battle for years. Today, he finally let his fans in on how he’s feeling, saying that he sometimes wishes it were him instead of his friends.
“Should Of Been Me Instead Of Jah Or Juice,” tweeted the 24-year-old rapper.
The Florida rapper did not clarify what got him into such dark thoughts. Just fifteen minutes after posting the alarming words, Ski’s fans and collaborators started pleading with him to never say anything like that.
Hopefully, he can one day realize that there’s a reason why he’s still here.
