“It’s on the news. It’s on the s**t. N**** got hit by a car… You know they finna start, though.”
Paying tribute to the Los Angeles-based rapper, Biz Markie tweeted: ‘RIP Ketchy the Great.
“A ball of 1000 watt voltage with a razor blade growl, who never failed to steal a track… whose promise was first undercut by the DA plot to persecute the Stinc Team, & now this. An unspeakable loss.”
