West Philadelphia native and rapper Chynna Rogers has died at 25, E! News confirmed.
, the young rapper opened up about overcoming drug addiction, her music and she shared that exactly a year after rehab, her mother had died. However, she didn't let her mother's death challenge her sobriety. "My mom would be really tight with me if I used her as an excuse to fall off," she told the publication."It's just more reason to work and get this sh-t done."
PhotosWhen talking to the publication about her past drug addiction, Rogers explained,"Two or three years ago, I felt that I hadn't gone through enough terrible stuff to deserve to have this as a career. I didn't feel like I deserved to be making a living off talking about my life yet because I just couldn't relate to enough people. It wasn't just the drug-addict thing, but also all the behaviors that come with it, all the situations you end up in, and the people you end up around just living that life."
She added,"Now I feel like I've been through enough shit. Now I feel like I can actually talk to y'all about something."Rogers released a few EP's, including I'm Not Here. This Isn't Happeningin 2015 and in 2016. She was also known for her hit singles"Selfie" and"Glen Coco."

I always looked up to how you played with words,"
