Rapper Turk Releases Pent-Up Guilt over His Father’s Death | Iyanla: Fix My Life | OWN


Stand up. Stand up. Come with me. During this crucial moment, I
am bringing Tab to the corner to release the pent
up negative energy into the walls he has
built up around himself. Let it out. It’s right here. Come on. Come on. Let’s go. Yeah. Come on.
Come on. Come on. On the wall. Let it out. [INAUDIBLE] [CRIES] The Tab that is
hidden under this mask is the hurt little boy, who
felt abandoned by his father. That’s the boy
who shot at police when he was scared and wound
up in prison for eight years. And that is the
boy who was hurting Erica because his daddy
wasn’t around to teach him how to be a man. Speak it out.
Come on. Now, you talk. Now, talk about it.
Come on. Now, talk about it. I wish I had my daddy. Yeah. [CRIES] I wish I had my daddy. So you don’t have to do this. [CRIES] I just– I ain’t never get a chance. I didn’t tell my daddy
how much he hurt me. I wish he was in my life. Every time I used to talk to
him, he would call me drunk. Even– even up until he died. While I’m in jail
and everything, I remember telling
them when I come home, I’m a get him to
come stay with me. And when I came home, he
was expecting to come, but I ain’t let him come. Yeah. Because he was
still getting drunk. And I ain’t want that
around my family. So I felt– Go ahead. He died and like if I
would have just got him. You don’t know that
to be true, Turk. That’s a weight you’re carrying. You don’t know that to be true. You don’t know it to be true. You don’t know it to be true. Push past what you know. Speak it. I can’t talk about it. Yes you can.
Yes you can. You can talk to him right now. What do you want him to know? Daddy, forgive me. Forgive me, daddy. Daddy, forgive me. Forgive me, daddy. I wasn’t there. I wasn’t there. Yeah, forgive me. Forgive me. Forgive me. Tab is demonstrating
a new pattern where he can have the
courage to own the past, to ask for forgiveness,
which heals old wounds, and to finally release the
weight that plagues his life and relationship with Erica.

  1. Iyanla is hilarious…hands down…if I am sad she knows how to bring out the laughter…lmao

  2. This is not help this is witchcraft! True healing only come to Jesus Christ not a witch.

  3. This is so sad us black me to never released a pain from our livesโ€ฆ I'm happy that this one gets the help that he needs but is so sad that the rest of us is told Not to speak about our pain and misery.

  4. Ugh my allergies

  5. You should have got him turk because you could have helped your father hands on.

  6. He was my favorite hot boy back in the 90's

  7. Now I'm hearing Iyanla's voice in my head asking ME these kinda questions. I can't keep bustin out in tears hell I'm at work… SMH! Well …. THANKS for your help, WOW! ๐Ÿ˜˜

  8. sometime I say to myself what the hell is iyanla doing some of her exercises are crazy …. lmao but WOW is she a powerful lady you have to love her

  9. This too much.Its not another way.

  10. I can't help but weep for his pain.

  11. I am so proud of him. God bless this man.

  12. Can y'all dumb black fathers just be in your kids life, damn it's not that hard…

  13. Whoever got a problem with him doing this is part of the problem within the black community today and the way you think helps to perpetuate it. He ain't any less of a man for it. He is more of a man in my eyes cause he tryna be better and do better for himself and his family. Because we refuse to acknowledge our problems is why we have all this messed up nonsense among us.

  14. I have sooo much respect for Turk. That burden had to go.

  15. The block is hot?

  16. I just filled out an app to be on her show, hope I get a call back.
    Knowing me I'll miss the damn call bc I don't answer strange #.

  17. Heโ€™s hurting and broken ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”

  18. Omg this lady is remarkable ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

  19. this is painful I want to come on this show about my mother and siblings how can I. I need closure and answers ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ก

  20. Iโ€™m crying too because so much hurt inside.

  21. Hugs to Turk. So sorry that happened to you.

  22. This is so painful

  23. It ainโ€™t weak and it is NOT gay for men to show emotion! It shows strength and humbleness and transparency! That a man can show his heart! Jesus wept! So everyone hating shut up you probably cry too and got built up pain which is why you hating in the first place

  24. I don't think he should apologize or feel bad about wanting to protect his family. That's what real men do. His dad should have been willing to change for his son. No one is too old to better themselves. Now his son has to live with guilt about something he shouldn't feel guilty about. Smh

  25. ufffff this hit home I grew up with an alcoholic dad. It was rough and It hurt It still hurts.

  26. Tears love you turk stay strong ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ˜‡

  40. Check my page! Im gonna stay fighting 4 my kids. Im in a nasty custody battle an the system empowers the wrong females it makes it hard for good Fathers and such as myself that will continue this battle so my kids will never feel this type of pain!!!!

  41. Modern day quackery.

  42. Its called Masking

  43. She is amazing a gift from God!

  44. And the Oscar goes too!!!! Lmao!!โ€™ WA Wa Wa wa…..Iโ€™m ah baby!!!

  45. Absent parents just donโ€™t understand the destruction they cause in their childrenโ€™s lives.

  46. I SALUTE !!!! ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ

  47. Man she should know better you should never touch anyone while there crying and letting it out because thatโ€™s what stops them from saying what they were gonna let out . She seems like sheโ€™s making up exercises while she goes along . I am glad that heโ€™s getting help but really you donโ€™t need to do all that itโ€™s easy to let go you just have to take that step of excepting and owning up to your part in stuff that happen everyone likes to blame everyone else . Like with Turk he blames the informant and the cops if he just realized that if he wasent hanging around with the wrong people and doing dope they would have never been there the root is always ourselves people donโ€™t realize how much power we have as individuals we make our own choices we say yes or no . And with his dad he could choose to love him even if thereโ€™s addiction you cant look down on him when you were doing the same things maybe even more . Plain and simple if you always call your self what you used to be then thatโ€™s what you will always be . Just like people when they call themselves alcoholics even if they havenโ€™t took a drink in years its like if you ainโ€™t drinking no more you ainโ€™t an alcoholic but if you call yourself that then thatโ€™s what you will always be a lot of people get stuck in those meetings itโ€™s like ok get the help but after your done donโ€™t stay there and hold it over your head all your life move on .

  48. I couldnโ€™t show my pain like this. I applaud him

  49. Dame!!! Trying not to let it be my boys

  50. Oh Turk..I felt your pain in all your song lyrics. I get it now. ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ’”
