He was met with constant betrayl and dissapointments, and his only resort was to act numb in order to cope with all of this depression and negativity around him.

A part of his several other face tattoos and body art is this unique yet meaningful tattoo. A broken heart on the upper left side of his cheek, right on his cheekbone/temple.

Although it is not clear to a lot of people why they got into a public despute at all, keeping in mind that they made two tracks together previously.
