“Dear most high,” he started. “Please forgive me for my shortcomings and all of the times I've fell short of making you proud and being appreciative of all the blessings that have been put in my life. Sometimes the lines are blurred between being solid and being heartless I want to thank you for how far I've come and the people you've put in my life to keep me grounded and humble through everything and I love every single one of those people that are genuinely for me I ask for entrance into your kingdom thru all of my mistakes I know you love all of your children and I'm ready for my heart and soul to Join you.”
Robertson was hit with a murder charge last year after he accidentally shot his 18-year-old friend, Khalil Walker, during a music video shoot on October 25. He was later indicted on the lesser charge of manslaughter this year.
Robertson, who was signed to Epic Records, broke into the local scene with his 2019 hit “6locc 6a6y” which was certified gold by RIAA last week. He went on to work with the likes of NLE Choppa, King Von, Polo G, and Pooh Shiesty.
