Jay “Jeezy” Jenkins is mourning the passing of his mother.

The rapper and talk show host took to social media on Wednesday to pay tribute to his late mother writing:

You taught me to be a man when I was a boy. Made me man up be a father when I was a kid. Raised me to be a natural born leader when I was lost.

You lifted me when I was down. Inspired me when I had no inspiration. Always told me I was Bigger than my circumstances. My Super Hero. Feared nothing or no one.. No obstacle or set backs. One of the only people in the world I could trust.

When I had nothing or no one, I had you Mamma. You was hard on me. I thank you for that. You gave me confidence when I didn’t have any. Made me feel like I can put the world on my back and walk barefoot. You never judged or down talked my dreams. Or my downfalls. You just encouraged.

I thank GOD you got a glimpse of the Man and Woman you raised and all the good we gave to world all because you gave it to us. My faith is strong. I know God has you now. We let heaven borrow our Angel. Kiss my brother Michael. Tell em we love him. And to take care of you.

You are in a better place. Dancing and singing to your favorite songs. With that beautiful smile on your face…

I will continue to make you proud. I LOVE YOU MOMMA. FORVER MY MOMMA’S BABY ❤️🙏🏾

Don’t you worry, I got Trina and the Family. Rest in Heaven our Queen 👸🏽
