Friends and fans of Chika were concerned for the rapper after she shared a series of tweets yesterday (July 14). Chika took to her Twitter and wrote that she’d “rather be anywhere else,” adding that she was “trying my best to remember the good things about life. I’m trying to reach out to friends. I’m trying to put the pain into music instead of internalizing it. But I can’t right now.” People reached out both privately and on social media, and Chika shared that she was doing well while thanking those that made sure she was staying on course.
