Honey Cocaine “Chichi The Yayo”
Honey Cocaine was born Sochitta Sal in Cambodia. Her parents raised her in a poor village in the country. They fled their country and moved to Toronto Canada. Growing up she didn’t know English. She learned through watching 106th and Park.
One of the first rappers she heard was Tupac. She recalls listening to his music as a kid and not understanding what he was saying but as she learned more English she felt a connection with his stories and her life growing up. Honey Cocaine started writing poetry when she was 6. And when she got a little older she started writing raps once her English got better. At 11 she started hitting the studio.
Once her father got a decent job they moved into a house and gave her the master bedroom. Her father called her Honey growing up. She was the ultimate daddy’s girl because she was the only daughter of her father and mother who had seven children. Despite his love and favoritism to her she still was disciplined when her grades did not meet his standards. In High School she would keep a cup in her locker and sneak to McDonald’s after school and get free refills.
How Honey Cocaine and Freddy E Met
Their relationship started when they performed at a show in Seattle Washington. He introduced himself and mentioned he was a fan of hers. They exchanged numbers. They kept in touch and became friends. He attempted to take the relationship further but Honey Cocaine wasn’t interested. She was focused on her career and the two rarely would be able to see each other.
He respected that and continued to be friends. They supported each other. It is still unclear why Freddy decided to kill himself, but he did send a series of grim tweets before his passing. “Annnd, my day is ruined,” he wrote on the site, giving way to a series of other tragic messages. “If there’s a God then He’s calling me back home.
This barrel never felt so good next to my dome. It’s cold & I’d rather die than live alone.” Those tweets made fans assume that because of Honey’s rejection it’s what forced him to take his life.
Though his final message to the world was dark, Honey will remember all of the light Freddy E brought to the world around him.
