HHP lived as an influence while alive, lots of testimonies about a well spent life floods the social media.

Reason the rapper took to his social media writing a lengthy letter about his life with Jabba. The rapper shared how he was on a road trip to Jabba’s hometown and how the Icon treated him like his brother, sharing life tips and how to become better. It was indeed a trip to remember as he shared a snippet from the journey.

Reason said, “It was April 2015, Jabba had missed a gig in Maftown the month before. So, he asked me to come with him for his Askis Neh Maftown gig which was his apology to his home town, a free show. It was just me and him alone on the road all the way to Mafikeng… He preached for me, prayed for me, lectured me, advised me and even confided in me about some real life shit.”

The rapper said HHP took him to his parents house, where he grew up and his sister cooked them a meal. However, he had lots to share but he described Jabba as an open book.
“My point is… Jabba was an open book that was overdosed with love! He definitely had his fair share of controversies and mistakes…”

He revealed the last time they spoke and how he saw his pains manifesting in his eyes but didn’t know his death date was close.
The last time we saw was at Pros funeral and I could see the pain in your eyes manifesting. I did not however see death in your eyes… You gave the best of you at all times.

IT WAS APRIL 2015. @jabbaman_1 HAD MISSED A GIG IN MAFTOWN THE MONTH BEFORE, SO HE ASKED ME TO COME WITH HIM FOR HIS #AskiesNehMaftown GIG WHICH WAS HIS APOLOGY TO HIS HOME TOWN. A FREE SHOW. IT WAS JUST ME AND HIM ALONE ON THE ROAD ALL THE WAY TO MAFIKENG, WITH ZONDI FOLLOWING US AT THE BACK IN ANOTHER CAR. IM NOT SURE HOW TO PAINT THE PICTURE FOR YOU BUT… ME AND MY NIGGA CHOPPED IT UUUUUUUP! WE BROKE BREAD HARD!! HE SCHOOLED ME, PRAYED FOR ME, PREACHED FOR ME, LECTURED ME, ADVISED ME AND EVEN CONFIDED IN ME ABOUT SOME REAL LIFE SHIT. IT WAS LIKE GOING ON A ROAD TRIP WITH MY BIG BROTHER FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FOREVER. THE FOLLOWING DAY, HE TOOK ME ON A TOUR OF MAFTOWN, SHOWING ME WHERE ALL THE MAFTOWN KINGS AND QUEENS GREW UP, LIVED, RECORDED, WORKED AND WENT TO SCHOOL. WE EVEN PULLED UP AT @khulichana01’S MOMS HOUSE TO GO SEE HIM CAUSE HE ALSO HAD A GIG ON THE SAME DAY AND HAPPENED TO BE IN TOWN. THE REALEST PART OF THE STORY IS… JABBA TOOK ME TO HIS MOMS HOUSE WHERE HE GREW UP. HOMEY INTRODUCED ME TO HIS FAMILY AND ASKED HIS SISTER TO MAKE ME BREAKFAST CAUSE WE MISSED IT AT THE HOTEL. MY POINT IS… JABBA WAS AN OPEN BOOK THAT WAS OVERDOSED WITH LOVE! HE DEFINITELY HAD HIS FAIR SHARE OF CONTROVERSIES AND MISTAKES… BUT MY NIGGA GAVE LOVE!!! REAL, PURE, UNCUT, HONEST AND GENUINE LOVE!!! ALWAYS. EVEN WHEN HE NEEDED IT, HE ALWAYS CHOSE TO GIVE IT. IF I GOTTA KEEP IT 100… ID SAY I PERSONALLY FEEL BAD FOR FALLING SHORT OF GIVING THE LOVE BACK AS MUCH AS YOU DID. OUR PERSONAL STRUGGLES TORE US INTO OUR OWN CORNERS TO GO FIGHT OUR BATTLES AND I GUESS YOURS WAS A BIGGER ONE THAN I IMAGINED… AND THAT BREAKS MY HEART. THE LAST TIME WE SPOKE WAS AT PROS FUNERAL AND I COULD SEE THE PAIN IN YOUR EYES MANIFESTING. I DID NOT HOWEVER SEE DEATH ON THE RISE. WITH THAT SAID… FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, I JUST WANNA THANK YOU FOR BEING THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF TO ME IN YOUR LIFETIME. YOU GAVE ME THE BEST OF YOU AT ALL TIMES AND I APPRECIATE THAT FOREVER. REST IN PEACE BROTHER. I LOVE YOU! P.S. I DONT KNOW WHAT ANOTHER SUMMER IS GONNA BE WITHOUT JABBA 😔 #RIPHHP #RIPJABBA
