“It didn’t surprise me that he showed up. We’re still very, very close. [Lil Wayne’s] daughter needed him and he was there. He calls and checks on us all the time. He really can’t handle funerals. Neither can I. It was so hard to see my two brothers in caskets. I had nightmares afterward. It was so hard.”
