Kirk Knight has opened up about his recent mental health struggles which have led to him thinking about ending his own life.
On Wednesday night (January 11), the Pro Era rapper took to Twitter to bravely discuss his inner battles with his fans.
The 27-year-old opened up further in a response to a fan about how the public eye doesn’t even know half of what he’s had to overcome in life as well as navigating the music industry.
“I ain’t gonna lie to u, y’all only know what I tell y’all If y’all knew y’all wouldn’t even know how I went platinum the first time,” Knight wrote.
I ain’t gonna lie to u, y’all only know what I tell y’all
If y’all knew y’all wouldn’t even know how I went platinum the first time

Pro Era previously lost a member to suicide about a decade ago when Capital Steez passed away during the early hours of Christmas Eve 2012 after jumping off the Cinematic Music Group headquarters building in NYC.
On the music side, Kirk Knight didn’t release a project in 2022, but he closed out the year strong with the hypnotic single “Walkthru.”
“Eyes wide open ’til I see a hundred mil’/ If I listened to you n-ggas, I wouldn’t be here/ I’m just prayin’ I can get the mansions on the hills/ I’m just prayin’ I can get my girl the latest heels/ Curses (Curses), they put curses on me (Curses on me)/ They put curses, but it ain’t workin’ on me, yeah,” he sings on the track.
Anyone struggling with suicidal thoughts or their mental health is encouraged to call the toll-free 24-hour Suicide and Crisis Lifeline by dialing 988.
