Master P opens up about daughter’s fatal drug overdose

About eight weeks ago, Master P shared tragic family news with fans via his social accounts. He called over privacy as his family grieved the loss of his daughter Tytyana Miller. Though he didn’t elaborate on the cause of her death at the time, he did write a line about mental illness and substance abuse in the post. Most of all, he requested privacy for his family. Days ago, he opened up about Tytyana’s passing to Gayle King in his first televised interview since his daughter’s death.

“It’s hard. Coming from where I come from, coming from poverty, you would think that you would outlive your kids and that was the mission,” Master P said in a shaky voice. “I feel like, going to my daughter’s funeral, I feel like I went to my own funeral. And I don’t even want to go to no more funerals.”

Master P said he received the “worst call that a parent can get” from his other daughter. Since then, he’s thought about her every day and can’t stop thinking about her. But still, he says he realizes he can’t get Tytyana back. So Master P’s mission now is to turn his “pain into passion” and “a purpose.” He hopes to save other kids and families by teaming up with professionals to bring awareness to mental illness and substance abuse.

“My whole purpose now is, I don’t know why you put me through this God and I’m not going to question you, but I’m going to get out here and save millions,” Master P said. “I’m going to help, I’m going to do something.”
