There’s a raging violent storm inside of my heart at all times. I don’t know what peace feels like. I don’t know how to relax. My anxiety and depression have ruled my life for as long as I can remember and I never leave the house because of it‚” he wrote.

The rapper went on to admit that he was not able to make new friends or have trusting relationships and so he was booking himself into rehab to try remedy the situation.

“I deserve to have peace. I deserve to be happy and smiling. Why not me? I guess I give so much of myself to others I forgot that I need to show myself some love too. I think I never really knew how. I’m scared‚ I’m sad‚ I feel like I let a lot of people down and again‚ I’m sorry. Its time I fix me. I’m nervous but I am going to get through this‚” he added.

And while the news might come as a shock to many fans‚ the rapper revealed that he hopes to return to the stage next month‚ “stronger‚ better and reborn“.
