Master P on the transformation of “pain into passion”
“My sympathy goes out to anyone who has lost a child. I will turn my pain into passion. I’m going to make it a goal because I can’t get my daughter back. I love her and think of her every day, and it took me and my family to go through something that I can’t stop thinking about, but I realize that I have to get out here and help and save other children.
Although he was supportive of his daughter through her struggles with addiction, Master P feels like he could have done more for Tytyana.
“My daughter still had a lot of life in her,” the record executive explained. “She was a happy woman who knew that tomorrow she could do something better.”
Master P continued, “When I got that phone call, I realized my daughter would never come back, and that’s what’s heartbreaking about it. And that’s why I said, ‘Let me team up with Nami [The National Alliance on Mental Illness]let me team up with ARJ cares.’ I want to help people like us. We want to raise awareness of this. I’m gonna get outta here and save millions.
