MoneyBagg Yo opened up about the death of the mother of three of his eight children in a recent interview with Angie Martinez.
Chyna Santana was reportedly murdered last year.
“It’s a tough situation. I had three kids by her. I got full custody of my kids. They stay in the house with me. I’m getting them adjusted to this lifestyle, this different life. It’s hard. I really see what sacrifices you gotta make,” he told Angie.
“She was in the streets. She was murdered by somebody she was with. It was shocking. I was in Atlanta. I was recording, working on the tape. And they just called me, ‘They saying Shanina at a room, she dead.’…I instantly broke down. I couldn’t believe it.”
The heartbroken rapper is now a full-time father. He says he struggled to tell his children what happened but he had to do it.
“This is when I broke down. I was like, ‘Damn, what I’m finna say?’. So I ended up letting the steam out, cry baby. I call my daughter and I was just like, ‘What you doing? Where y’all at?’ And she said, ‘It happened?’ That’s exactly what she said. Her mom was supposed to have been with her that night, but she never came back. She was like, ‘It happened?’…I just didn’t know how to tell [her]. I was like, ‘My mama finna come get y’all.’ That’s all I could say… It’s hard to talk about right now, but I’m a strong man. I’m dealing with it. I’m getting through it.”
