On the relationship, Chigga states:
“Me and this girl, we were kinda online dating for a little bit. She lives in Maryland. Two months into the relationship, she broke up with me. The day after it happened I was feeling whatever about it. Two days later, I was just so down. I’ve never really felt depressed. I’m a happy person, so I really felt depression before, but I felt so empty. I had days where I wanted to throw up because I felt so sad.”
