T.I. pays tribute to sister Precious Harris on first birthday without her

The rapper's late sister was killed in a car crash in February. She would have turned 67 on May 23.

ATLANTA — Months earlier, it would have surely been a day that Atlanta rapper T.I. would have planned celebrating with his sister.

But on the day of her 67th birthday, he and other members of his family are still grieving her sudden loss while honoring her memory. T.I. took a moment on Thursday to once again pay tribute to his sister, who died following a car crash on Feb. 13.

"Happy Birthday sis!!!! We still celebrating your life & legacy, all while missing the s*** out you at the same time," T.I. wrote. "I try my best to smile knowing you’re at peace, rather than selfishly complaining about my pain. I feel like a hater crying cause you’re not here when I KNOW you’ve been promoted to your rightful position."

He went on to say that her contributions to Atlanta and their family were "immeasurable" and that they "will never be forgotten."

He continued the message to his sister updating her on how the family is coping with her loss and other parts of family life that have occurred since she passed. 

"My mama just went to a Shirley Caesar concert & said “Precious would’ve loved this...She got down!!!” he wrote.

He also mentioned the recent scholarship he presented on Mother's Day to honor Precious' memory.

"And we plan to do so every year," he said in conclusion. "I thank God for all the knowledge, wisdom, guidance, love & laughter you blessed US ALL with. We Love You Forever!!! #LongLivePrecious"
