A few years ago, Riky Rick took a break from live performances to deal with chronic depression

Speaking on his podcast Lab Live in 2020 the award-winning rapper opened up about losing his father saying grief had put him in a ‘dark space’.

He said: “I lost my father at a time when I needed the help. I lost him at a time when I needed that voice. A lot of people don’t understand that you can never replace the voice of a father. It wasn’t like he just died, it was like 18 years, living with your dad for a year, and then going back to your mom. I love being with my mom but living with him for a year. A child is never meant to live without his parents.”

Riky Rick’s family is yet to release a statement but fellow artists and friends of the rapper have started sharing condolence messages.
