The DJ added that music has helped his healing process. 

"Reflecting on the pain I have been and still going thru while on a journey of recovery learning to accept the new me while being selfless about God's plans with me. I understand why HE gave me Music,to heal me 1st before it even gets to you. I'm great full for every not and every melody. I will continue to follow HIS lead (sic)."
