A$AP Rocky’s star is finally reaching its heights as his debut album, Long.Live.A$AP, recently hit the shelves and is expected to debut at the top of the charts next week. But as the world buzzes about the Harlem emcees music, Rocky recently took time to open up about his personal life and publicly mourn the death of his father.

Rocky’s father passed away over the Christmas holiday and the young rapper Instagrammed a photo of his dad with a heartfelt message attached.

“R.I.P DAD , UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN . ‘SEE MY DADDY IN HEAVEN , HE BE DA REALIST G’ TTTL,” wrote Rocky.

During a recent interview on “The Rickey Smiley Morning Show,” Rocky touched upon his father’s death and explained how his father influenced him.

“He was a reasonable guy. He had a lot of sense, and a lot of people lack it these days,” Rocky recalled of his father.

However, after answering that question, Rocky decided to leave the subject alone, saying that his father’s death was too recent to delve into any further.

As always, our condolences go out to Rocky and his family and friends. Unfortunately, Rocky’s not the only celeb to lose a loved one. Check out some other celebrity family deaths below. – nicholas robinson
