    "Rest In Peace Naya, God Bless your Soul!" Big Sean wrote on Instagram.

    "Thank you for blessing us all with your talent and presence. [Y]ou are a hero! Not just because of how you saved your son, also because of the barriers you knocked down for so many people to make them feel confident in themselves and to stand tall and be proud when they couldn’t achieve that on their own."

    The rapper continued, "I appreciate and cherish everything that ever happened between us for making me wiser and a better person."
