“Our family is dealing with an overwhelming grief for the loss of my daughter Tytyana. We respectfully request some privacy so that our family can grieve. We appreciate all of the prayers love and support.”
While he did not say anything further about his daughter’s death, the rapper and producer identified two issues of importance in the black community.

Tytyana has in the past shared about her struggle with substance abuse and addiction.
Her father spoke about her struggles with dealing with drugs in 2016.
“I really hope TyTy is serious about making a change. In my house, I’m a drill sergeant because you need somebody to tame you and tell you ‘I’m gonna fix this.’ If you need to get help, we’re here for you,” the father of nine had said in a comment after urging her to check into a rehabilitation center to help her deal with addiction.
Celebrities have been reacting to the news offering their support to Master P and his family. Snoop Dogg, who is a close friend of Miller, wrote, “I’m here for u and the family. Stay strong. P.”
