Master P is opening up about the death of his 29-year-old daughter, Tytyana Miller, who passed away in May of an accidental drug overdose.
“It’s hard. Coming from poverty, you would think that you would outlive your kids and that was the mission,” he told CBS Mornings host Gayle King in an interview that aired Friday. “I feel like, going to my daughter’s funeral, I went to my own funeral.”
Tytyana had been battling addiction for nearly a decade. Master P said she had just gotten out of rehab and appeared to be doing better. In the wake of her passing, he hopes to help other families dealing with mental illness and addiction.
“My sympathy goes out to everybody that lost a child,” he shared. “I said, ‘I’m gonna turn my pain into passion and I’m gonna turn it into a purpose because I can’t get my daughter back.’ I love her and think about her every day, and it took me and my family to go through something that I just can’t stop thinking about, but I realize that I have to get out here and help and save other kids.”
“I want to help people that look like us. We want to bring awareness to this,” he added. “…I’m going to get out here and save millions.”
