TobyMac’s Sister Preceded in Death by the Rapper’s Son
Less than a year ago TobyMac and his family lost their first born son, Truett Foster McKeehan to an accidental overdose. Truett was only 21 years of age and was an up-and-coming aspiring rapper just like his father. TobyMac released a song about his son entitled “21 years”, the chorus of the song reads “God has you in heaven, but I have you in my heart.”
On TobyMac’s Instagram page, he said of Kristen’s passing that “She was met at heaven’s gates by Truett (who adored her) and our dad (who she drove crazy :). There will be a hole in our family’s heart forever, but heaven just got wonder woman.”
Kristen passed away the day before what would have been Truett’s 22nd birthday.
