As the rapper shared tributes on social media, and friends and peers offered their support and prayers during this time, he revealed that he received some words of wisdom from Drake recently.
Pooh took to his IG Story where he shared a voice memo from Drake who sent a heartfelt message following Pooh's brother's death. "I just want to send you my condolences, man. You know, and just let you know that, like, the cycle of life is unfair, you know? It just hits us so hard," Drake said in the message. "Money can't change that, you know? Something I just went through, too, with one of my friends," he admitted, before acknowledging Pooh's hustle, grind, and resilience to make it this far and to provide for those around him.
