Master P and his family are dealing with the loss of his 29-year-old daughter Tytyana Miller who passed away late last month. While the specific cause of death won’t be announced until the toxicology reports are finished, the No Limit Records founder suggested drug addiction and mental illness were to blame.
On Tuesday (June 7), the 52-year-old entrepreneur paid tribute to Miller during a show and vowed to help others who are struggling with substance abuse and mental health issues.
“I love my daughter, man,” he begins.” I miss her. I always was her parachute and now she’s my parachute in the sky looking over me. We not gonna grieve no more, we’re gonna celebrate because now I’m gonna be able to take care of millions of kids and save millions of lives. I’m gonna get out here and play my part. I know God put me in this world for a passion and purpose. Mental illness is a serious thing.”

From there, Master P asked everyone to sing Michael Jackson’s 1995 single “You Are Not Alone,” which he referred to as his daughter’s “theme song.” He added in the caption, “I always been my daughter’s parachute, now she’s my parachute in the sky. No more grieving, it’s time to celebrate her and help millions of people dealing with mental illness and substance abuse. #WeAllWeGot #godisgood.”
Miller, who starred on WEtv’s Growing Up Hip Hop, talked about her struggles with substance abuse in the past. In a 2016 episode, she confessed to having a drug problem while simultaneously exposing her mother as battling addiction as well.
“That trip really opened my mind to see how I would miss you the most because you were always here for me,” Miller said in a clip. “I just thought that the trip stopped me from ever wanting to be in Hollywood seen with those celebrity friends. I feel like I don’t need to go to rehab. I feel like I could do good without rehab.”
Master P responded, “You say that Tata, but on the serious side, I think we should get some professional help just to make sure you stay on track. Let’s not say you don’t want to go to rehab. I think you should at least try because I don’t want you to go back to this.”
The Los Angeles Police Department is busy trying to determine her cause of death. According to TMZ, initial evidence supports a fatal overdose. Drug paraphernalia was discovered at the scene although whatever substance she was using was absent.
