Aaron Hernandez Thanked Jay-Z, Meek Mill, And Rick Ross In Suicide Note
Aaron Hernandez, the former NFL star and convicted murderer, died by suicide while in jail last year. But before his death, he wrote three suicide notes, with one of them thanking several rappers that helped him get through "tough times."
In a report from CNN, Hernandez wrote one to his lawyer, Jose Baez, where he thanked Jay-Z, Meek Mill, Rick Ross, Kevin Gates, and The Game for their music.
"I need a favor," the note reads. "If you have any contacts for any artists like Gates, Meek Mill, Ross, Jay, Game … etc. I would like to send you letters so you can send to their information or whichever way you think best. I don't want any media really getting into me, trying to just send my love to all the artists who got me through my tough times and sending my respect to a few of the real ones out there."
"So I think that's the best idea through you. It's something I have to do and I'd appreciate if you could do that for me, if possible! If not, I'll figure something out. Well, get at me, love ya brother," the letter concludes.
Along with that note, Hernandez also wrote ones for his daughter Avielle Jenkins-Hernandez and fiancée Shayanna Jenkins. Excerpts of the notes are included in Baez's new book, Unnecessary Roughness: Inside the Trial and Final Days of Aaron Hernandez.
