“Doing right by each other. If you are not selfish, you can make it work. We always say, be selfless instead of selfish.”

Rev Run perfectly encapsulated this in an Instagram post, stating that her happiness is his job. He also posted a photo of them when they were much younger, referring to her as his “ride or die.”
