I lost my cousin 12 years ago. It was less than a year after my grandmother, who was like my mother, had died. I was still mourning when he left. He was shot and killed at my house while I was gone. He was going into Rap music and going to have a mechanic shop.
We were friends before we realized we were family. His mother asked who I was and realized who my father was. He came and stayed at my house and her last words were before we left were take care of your cousin.
Every time I hear our favorite 2Pac song I have to take a long pause to hold back the tears. Today, I’ve got 2Pac on and I’m not going to hold back. Those tear drops are real.
