Many heartfelt tributes have poured in across a number of different platforms in the wake of Atlanta rapper Bankroll Fresh's murder two nights ago. 2 Chainz chimed in, as did Future, Lil Wayne, Pusha T, and many many more. Zaytoven talked to Complex at length about his own thoughts and feeling about the loss and yesterday, producer Metro Boomin took to Instagram and penned a lengthy post to honor his departed friend while also looking deep inside himself to ask how they both arrived at this point.
"They took my brother Fresh and I'm hurt right now. very hurt," the post began. "I'm hurt that this music shit has made everything so different and affected all of my personal relationships because of the high demand of work and the stress. but you were one of the few niggas that understood and still gave full support." He added, "I miss how fun and natural this shit used to be, before it felt like as much of a job as it does now. I miss recording songs at the house all night and u would just stay and sleep on the couch because you wanted to win as bad as I wanted to win."
Metro then went on to reflect about how he and Bankroll grew apart these last couple of years due to their own respective success and how painful that distance feels now. "I hate how we did less and less as we both were getting more and more success. we were both so busy and never could even be in town at the same time anymore. But through that you were still genuinely happy for me as much as I was for you. I've worked so much over the years and neglected my personal life so much that I feel alone at times now. I shoulda been there and you shoulda been here."
