DJ Premier is mourning the loss of his mother who passed away earlier this week. On Thursday (June 11), the legendary turntablist/producer shared a touching Instagram photo of his left hand place over his mother’s hand and noted she’s now his guardian angel.
“My Angel Just Got Her Wings…I’m So Glad I Made It Here To Say Goodbye…The Caretakers Love You So Much That They Just Did Your Nails and Feet Before Your Last Breath…That’s How A Queen Gets Handled…I LOVE YOU MOMMA…91 YEARS OF LOVE…YOU DID THE DAMN THANG! DADDY IS WAITIN FOR YOU!”
It wasn’t that long ago Premier announced he’d lost his father. Almost two years to the day, Preemo shared a similar Instagram photo of his father’s hands and mourned his passing as well. Much like the circumstances surrounding his mother’s death, the Gang Starr vet was with his father when he took his last breath.
“A RARE BREED,” he wrote in the Instagram post. “YOU WAITED FOR US AND YOU TOOK YOUR LAST BREATH PEACEFULLY IN YOUR OWN HOME THE WAY YOU WANTED… GLAD WE WERE HERE IN THE HOUSE TO SEE YOU GET YOUR WINGS… LOVE YOU DAD! R.I.P.”
Preemo’s mother was 91 at the time of her death. HipHopDX sends our condolences to Preemo, his friends and family.
