Back on May 15, 2017, Waka appeared on the VICELAND series ‘The Therapist’ and spoke to Dr. Siri Sat Nam Singh about the deaths of his two brothers.
He is quoted saying;
“The only way I could get through it, I had to stay high,” he said at the time. “So I’m like ‘Fuck it, I’m gonna get high. I’m gonna pop me some pills. That’s how I’mma do it.’ That was my therapy. That was my addiction, [it] was pills. He continues, “From my perspective right now, I’m in a spot now [where] I just wanna clean out everything in the house. It took me, like, four years — almost four solid years — to get to where I’m at.”
