Death Anniversary: Freaky Tah

Eleven years ago today outside a Queens Sheraton, Lost Boyz member Freaky Tah AKA Raymond Rodgers was shot in the head by Kelvin Jones....Tah clung to life for awhile, but was pronounced dead at 4:20 AM....He was all of 27 years old. Jones would later be convicted for the murder.

The Jamaica Queens bred MC and promoter was a driving force behind the success that was the 1990's Hip-Hop group The Lost Boyz and to me they never were the same after his passing. A lot of times we forget to remember guys like Tah, who weren't super well known, but still had a hand in crafting some really memorable, if not classic music...

We haven't forgotten you this year Freaky... R.I.P
