We grew up in the exact same environment around the exact same time. It feels damn near like I lost my sister from the streets. I was lil duval and she was ms lil duval. It's really hard to explain our relationship unless you grew up in our life. And if u met her you'd never know the life she came from and how much pain she's experienced in her life. I remember when she moved to Atlanta she came to my house and said "I finally left for good" I'm not even hear to show how tight our bond was but everybody that really know me understands. You're with yo brother and your pops now joKeisha and surprised them on your birthday. Love you.
Yung Joc and Lil Duval shared their sentiments on Instagram. Brown was the mother of a teenage boy. Rest in peace, Jokisha.
