"Rest In Peace to one of the coolest funniest dudes I ever met!" director Jeremíah Messiah wrote. "He was different but he was himself and he always looked out and gave me more money than I asked for recording or anything. And he offered to buy me a new laptop when I got hit. My nigga forever a real one!"
