The Memphis rapper took to Instagram on Saturday (May 27) to voice his appreciation for the two-year-old named Clover, writing a lengthy message paying tribute to her in anticipation of her third birthday.
“This is my ‘ANGEL,’” Choppa wrote in the caption of the post, which included a video collage of special moments he and his daughter have shared over the years. “Clover Literally Changed My Life, The Reason My Spiritual Awakening Happened Cause I Knew Longevity In My Life Was Needed To Be In Yours. So Thank You Clover For Maturing Me Faster Than Anything That’s Ever Happened To Me In LIFE.”
The 20-year-old rapper also acknowledged how his responsibilities as a parent have helped him evolve and grow as a man, adding that the toddler gave him “something to live for.”
“You Are The Reason I Want Better, You Are The Reason I Love, You Are The Reason I LIVE,” he wrote. “Before You Was Here I Was Contemplating Suicide, When I Found Out You Were [Conceived] You Gave Me Something To Not Only Look Forward To, But Something To Live For!”
