Maino is mourning the passing of his mother, who transitioned to her heavenly home on Thursday (January 27).
The Brooklyn rapper, whose real name is Jermaine Coleman, took to social media with a beautiful and heartfelt tribute to his mother.
The thing about Time is that we always think we have enough of it. Then one day we realize that we really don’t. I’m Sorry Mommy…sorry that we didn’t have more Time, but Grateful for the Time we had.
The moments that became Priceless Memories. Thank you Mommy…Thank you for giving me life, thank you for believing in me when I didn’t Believe in myself.
Tonight I made the Hardest Decision of my Life. But what gives me comfort is that there will be no more Pain Mommy. No more trips to the Doctors…no more needles. No more procedures….no more Pain.
Mommy please know that you raised 3 sons that became men. Who u never judged, doubted or turned way from in our times of misfortune and Troubles. I’m happy that you got to see me turn my life around and make it out of the streets.
Happy that you had the chance to watch us become men and watch our kids grow. You were Proud of us. Of your family and I wish this wasn’t our reality. But it is and what I feel is indescribable.
But I was there with u every step of the way, holding your hand determined to not let u leave us alone.
Thank u mommy. Thank you. You did your job. I just wanna tell you that I love you Forever and it was an Honor to be your son.
Sleep well My Beautiful Mother
