Freeway and his children Harmony Pridgen and Jihad Pridgen

Freeway took to social media on Saturday to share that October holds a significant place in his heart because it is the month that he lost both of his children.

The Philadelphia rapper, whose real name is Leslie Pridgen, lost his son, Jihad, in October 2020.

Jihad, 20, died of complications of accidental drug intoxication.

Freeway shared that his son had battled an opioid addiction for two years.

A month before Jihad’s passing, Freeway’s daughter, Harmony Pridgen, was diagnosed with cancer.

In October 2021, Harmony passed away at the age of 21.

The rapper and proud father has suffered immeasurable loss, but he still continues to push forward and be there for others like Gillie The Kid, who recently lost his son to gun violence.

The “Million Dollaz Worth of Game” podcast host praised his Philly brother for being by his side every step of the way after his son, Cheese, was killed.

Freeway took to social media to honor the memory of his children with a beautiful message that reads:

I want to take a moment to share with you that October holds a significant place in my heart. It marks the month when I lost both of my beloved children, Jihad and Harmony.

Though the pain is still present, I find solace in the blessing of my relationship with Allah (God). It is through His strength and guidance that I am able to navigate the difficult emotions that resurface during this time.

October serves as a reminder of the profound love I hold for my children and the cherished memories we shared. Despite the challenges, I am grateful for the support and faith that sustains me as I continue to heal.

Thank you for your understanding and compassion as I honor the memory of Jihad and Harmony this month.
