Atlanta rapper Future needs more than just a hug tonight. The hip-hop star has announced the death of his longtime friend and producer.
Future went to Instagram Saturday (September 23) with the heartbreaking announcement.
I always gave racism a cold shoulder because my real brother Is a white guy by the name of Seth Firkins. I got a call saying u died in your sleep? First thing came to my mind is, why are you sleep at 5am? That's when we record our best shit & I tell u "don't" fall asleep we got more work to do.. but somethin told me I should've been at home recording for some reason. I was saying this in my head, then bad news beat me home! I love u beyond this post, I will cherish u forever big bro, I just wish u would've text me & told me u was going to sleep and i wasn't going to be able to wake u up this time…the family will miss u 1000%!! No kap in my game kid, rest well my brother. Rest well. 🦅

Future, DJ Khaled and Rihanna tied for songwriter of the year, while Universal Music Publishing Group took home the publisher of the year award. (Billboard)
