TIP took to Instagram this week to mourn the death of his grandfather, Robert Morgan.

The Atlanta rapper says that Morgan, who served as a father figure to him, was buried yesterday (January 5) and TIP posted images from the funeral service.

“We laid down a real stand up GUY today!!!! Not many men have raised as many Real Ones as He DID!!!!#RIPDADDY,” he writes for the caption of one of the images.

TIP reported Morgan’s passing on January 1 with a picture of himself with Morgan.

“RIP to my Granddad ‘Daddy’da strongest most SOLID man I knew!!!!!” TIP writes. “Robert Morgan. Taught me how to peep bullshit, demand respect & stay prepared for anything life could throw at me. I know u my Granddaddy but all da time we spent together make me feel like I’m your third son. You’ve shown me more than I can express just by being U!!!! A true man’s MAN!!!!
