Lil Uzi Vert Gets Emotional During His Speech At Lotto Cash Desto’s Funeral

Lotto Cash Desto was Vert’s artist and was killed due to gun violence last month.

Lil Uzi Vert paid his respects to Lotto Cash Desto during his funeral ceremony, delivering a heartfelt speech.

The fallen rapper passed away due to gun violence in late September near 5500 Richmond Avenue in West Houston. The incident occurred around 2:30 a.m. while she was driving a Porsche SUV with at least one passenger inside.

The service was held in Desto’s hometown of Memphis, Tennessee where Vert began to get emotional on the podium, sharing it “doesn’t feel real” that Desto is gone.

“I ain’t gon’ lie this don’t even feel real to me,” he began.

“Destinee was always on my hip everywhere I go… I had got in some trouble and they put me away I had to go to a rehab program and all that. She called me every day… Even if she called to argue with me, she called me every day and that’s what counted. I don’t even know how I feel,” he added. “I got close over a short span of time. Just her loyalty, like, she showed me a different type of loyalty… She’d never let anyone get up near me. Anything she could do for me, she would do it. Just feeling something different, especially knowing I’m older than her so she was my little homie.”

The rapper shared a message on social media, saying he’s been trying to keep his mind together but it “hurts.”
