On New Year’s Eve, the artist’s wife took to his Instagram account to honor him in a touching post. Jasmine began her post by noting that she was giving thanks to “THE ALL!”

Then speaking directly to her late husband, she described him as the greatest teacher, father, husband, student, lover, business partner, and friend. She then thanked him for all the things he’d shown her.


The late artist’s wife continued by showing her gratitude to Daniel for the things he’d given and taught her, their children, and their family. She thanked him for teaching her forgiveness and how to give people second chances.

Jasmine also noted how her husband had helped her learn not to judge quickly and write people off. She thanked him for showing her how not to be afraid to love and be the best version of herself.


Daniel’s widow shared how words could never express what he and Malachi, their 14-year-old son who passed in 2017, meant to her. She confessed that she loved and adored the both of them always, noting:

“My world will never be the same without you.”


The rapper’s wife asked “THE ALL” to continue blessing him, their family, and the planet. She concluded her heartfelt post by sharing all her love with him and revealed that he’d actually passed away on October 31, 2020.
