Baby - Rapper Baby Still Struggling With Sister's Death

Hip-hop mogul Bryan 'Baby' Williams still faces a daily struggle to come to terms with the death of his younger sister, five years after a tragic car accident claimed her life.
Tamara, a 26-year-old nursing student, was killed in December, 2006 when her car was struck by another motorist who had been driving in the wrong direction on a main road in Louisiana.
Williams, also known as Birdman, admits he has learned to heal with the support of his friends and family, including protege Lil Wayne, but he will never fully get over the pain of losing his baby sister.
Speaking to CelebrityAccess, he says, "That was the joy of my life right there... She was graduating a week later, man before that accident happened.
"That was a pill that I could never swallow. I live with that pain, and I just pray on it for the strength. That was something that was hard for me to get through, but you know my 'son' Wayne and my family strengthen me.
"Every loss that I take, every loss that I done took, I always tried to make it to me to be strong because I know that can weaken you... So I got to be strong for the team. I let a loss always make me into a gain (sic)."
And Williams, who now calls Miami, Florida home, reveals Tamara's death makes it all the more difficult for him emotionally every time he makes a trip back to his native Louisiana - because he has no real family there anymore.
He adds, "It's difficult for me going back, period... My daddy's dead; my mama's dead; my sister's dead; my brother's dead; my grandparents on both sides are dead. For me, when I go back it's like I go back to that. It brings me right back to my loved ones. I still go back but I don't go to liking it (sic) because of the feeling I get when I do go back."
