Swae Lee Clears The Air Regarding His Step-Father’s Murder
Recently Swae Lee launched his 10-episode Snapchat docuseries entitled Swae Meets World. He dives deep on “I have three brothers,” he said. He addresses the allegations and enduring the pain.
“Allegedly, the police say my youngest brother, he shot my dad, killed my dad. It’s unbelievable, you can’t even imagine. It’s like something out of a movie. I’m still dealing with it. I don’t even know how to deal with it all the way completely.”
While talking to his friends during another scene of the same episode, Lee commented:
“I gotta go to Mississippi too though ’cause I gotta visit my dad. You know what I’m saying, visit the gravesite.”
