“We have today lost one of the greatest talents to ever grace a music pitch in local Hip-Hop. KC was a true definition of hardcore rap for the country and in 𝗡𝘂𝗲𝗿 𝗱𝗶𝗮𝗹𝗼𝗴𝘂𝗲. May he rest in eternal bliss.
KC, and I, did not agree on a lot of things including his abuse of drugs and alcohol, forcing me to withdraw my support to him 4 years ago.
In the last 3 years, a few individuals have consistently continued to reach out to me, to assist them to rescue KC, their request for my help was based on monetary, but I refused to give my money in that manner.
However, I believe those people took him to his early graveyard. His death was well-supported with scientific evidence, the only persons who came out differently were promoters who tried to engage him in gigs or performances, offering him the platform to showcase his dreams was the best effective way to distract him.
When you see someone you love have a problem with substance abuse? Or alcohol addiction?
Explore the warning signs and how to get him the best help you can. It is time to change how we as a society address alcohol and drug misuse and substance use disorders.
May his spirit of creativity inspire more young people to pursue the game. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and the Hip-Hop industry as a whole, for whom he was a figure to emulate.
