I’d heard rumors about myself, about P, about other niggas, and they never be true. Especially my homeboy, my dude? That he’s dead? “And I just had a progress report on him the night before that he good,” he added. “He walking around, he joking, he eating food, and somebody gonna say that he passed away? Like that? I knew it was a lie. But when I came to the realization that it wasn’t a lie, that shit just … It fucked me up. I was pinching myself, literally. It had to be a dream.”
When asked what exactly caused his friend’s death, Havoc said, “From what I heard, he threw up and it went into his lungs. That’s the official part of what I heard. And I still have questions. What the fuck does that mean? He was fine.”
