Prayers to the King #PatStay

I’m at an absolute loss of words right now. I spent the entire morning crying. I can’t possibly process this. He was my number 1. Im absolutely destroyed to the core of my existence. Me and pat were extremely close. People that know me know I don’t keep in touch on a day-to-day basis if were not in the same state let alone country . But pat was different it was an open line. We spoke like he lived across the street from me

Dizaster went on to state that Pat Stay was the only rapper that “pushed his pen” and declared him the G.O.A.T. “Nobody will ever replace him,” he continued.

I know I don’t share my family business on here, but I’m also a parent now. I looked up to him as a father and called him when ever I had any questions because he was an example of excellence to me. I learned so much from him.

When he lost his mother, I couldn’t get him off my mind and prayed for him night and day. This is my goat for life but not just as a rapper as a human being also, the gentle giant, the kind hearted, the understanding and realest friend u can have.

As previously reported, Stay was attacked in a local bar not long after leaving a friend’s wedding. He allegedly intervened between two other people who were fighting in a try to diffuse the situation. Although no suspects have been arrested by police, Dizaster wishes for “the biggest amount of karma and the person responsible.”

Dizaster was among many who sent their condolences on social media, with both Eminem and Drake praising Pat’s rapping ability. Go here to donate to Pat Stay’s GoFundMe. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
