What’s even more heartbreaking about his passing is the fact that his son recently turned one year old. In a heartfelt message dedicated to his little man, he revealed that he wanted to create generational wealth so that his son, King, didn’t have to worry about anything.
“My beautiful son @king_koreya just turned 1 and I still can’t believe how blessed I am to be his daddy!🥺 The past year has changed my life forever and I’ll eternally be grateful for the opportunity to learn and grow every day as I try to be the best father I can be! At some point, you just realize that there’s truly more to life than money and individual success, let’s try to create generational wealth so that our kids never have to worry about shit.”
