Rapper Kid Cudi wrote a heart-felt message on his blog to 18-year-old Ben Breedlove, the Texas teen who died on Christmas Day after a lifelong battle with the heart disease, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
During the last two years of his life, Ben posted videos (below) on YouTube where he spoke about his faith and his life experiences. He even dispensed advice on dating. In his final videos he silently held up cards that revealed his was at peace with death and mentioned his near-death experiences, during one he saw his favorite rapper Kid Cudi.
“I am so sad about Ben Breedlove. I watched the video he left for the world to see, and him seeing me in detail, in his vision really warmed my heart. I broke down, Iam to tears because I hate how life is so unfair. This has really touched my heart in a way I cant describe, this is why I do what I do."
"Why I write my life, and why I love you all so much. Life is really f***ed up sometimes, but I know Ben is at Peace, and I hope he gets a chance to sit and talk with my Dad. We love you Ben. Forever. Thank you for loving me. To Ben’s family, you raised a real hero, he’s definitely mine. You have my love."
