Fans of Hip-Hop rising star Rod Wave woke up to concern after a late night Rod Wave suicidal song made it’s way across the internet. The St. Petersberg, Fl bred rapper released the track late Friday night, but the post has since been deleted. Fans have since shared screen grabs of the songs and reposted on YouTube, the song titled, “Nirvana”.
The song sounds off like a final letter to fans, alluding to struggling with mental health and having tried to commit suicide before. He talks of finding success and fame, but not having the joy that he hoped would come with it. It’s a very eerie track that by itself raises alarms, particularly since the rapper also deactivated his social media accounts and there was no previous plans for the songs release. Surely seems like he is sounding the alarm.
The Rod Wave Nirvana song starts off with:
“If you hearing this it’s too late/
I been writing this since Tuesday/
Today’s Friday that means it’s dooms day/
Tried to fight the pain it ate me alive/
Sade to say I lost the battle, against my mind.”
He later flows, “Told the world how I was feeling, my worst decision, since this fame and all these millions, they treat my different, tired of fake smiles and broken hearts it’s fuck the world, fuck the money, and the cars, the jewelry and the girls”
And maybe the most concerning lyrics in the song come towards the end when he says:
I been this way for a while, lost as a child
Momma always telling me smile, she so in denial
Sick, wishing I had some help,
what the fuck make a nigga go off and blast himself
