"Fly high BIG MAN. We love you so much!" he wrote to his toddler, who was held by his mom. 

Bangz didn't share the details surrounding his son's death in his post, but he gave a few clues when he wrote his son was in a better place and no longer in pain. 

His message suggested that his child may have been living with an illness.

"I try to make myself think of that to find a little bit of light in this," he wrote as he comforted himself about the tremendous loss before concluding it, "GOD got u poppa I love u!"

After the announcement, thousands of fans responded to Bangz's post with love and support for the grieving father.

Many of his fans didn't know that he had a son, and since he had not shared any updates, they wondered about his son's cause of death. 

The exact reason is unconfirmed, but in 2017, Bangz's girlfriend, who goes by "raynesmguerra" on Twitter, responded to a tweet that has been deleted saying that their kid had two brain conditions and had undergone six surgeries.

A post on her Instagram shows their son was born in September 2016. She uploaded a photo of her newborn and wrote, "Life has so much meaning now."

The Mother of Kirko Bangz's Son

Although Bangz is a famous rapper, he has kept his life away from prying eyes. That includes becoming a father, as many were unaware he had a son until the tragic announcement.

In fact, most people did not know he was in a relationship. 

It is unclear if she is his girlfriend or wife, but according to her Instagram and Twitter, she is the mother of his child. During their son's death, she mourned on Twitter, mentioning she was incomplete and could never be whole again. 

His Instagram does not have any photos of her. But on August 26, he uploaded a picture with her on Twitter, calling her the love of his life.

His girlfriend also reshared the post, revealing in the caption that they had been together since 2013. 

Other than Bangz's Twitter post, he has revealed little about his personal life.
