Rappers aren’t usually known for getting emotional and showing their feelings. In fact, some would label them “soft” if they did. But sometimes, you have to throw caution to the wind and drop the machismo. How could you not take the time to do that, especially when one of your fan’s final words included that you were their favorite rapper and you were in what seemed like heaven with them during a near death experience.
The video blog Ben Breedlove uploaded to YouTube was a stirring account of how he had “cheated death” just two weeks prior to his actual death. He had struggled with a heart condition all of his life and he was able to give a detailed account of his last near death experience.
Breedlove described being in a white room alone with Kid Cudi; “his favorite rapper.” He couldn’t understand why he was the only one there, but they had on white suits and he felt really good about himself. And Cudi put his hand on his shoulder and told him to “Go now.” And he lived.
But unfortunately, two weeks later, he would die on Christmas Day, according to MSNBC. Cudi took to his blog saying:
“…I broke down, Iam to tears because I hate how life is so unfair. This has really touched my heart in a way I cant describe… I hope he gets a chance to sit and talk with my Dad. We love you Ben. Forever. Thank you for loving me. To Ben’s family, you raised a real hero, he’s definately mine. You have my love.”
