From ALLAH we came and to ALLAH is our return. Today I have been saddened with news of the passing of a Hip Hop Legend Ricardo Royal aka Gangsta Rick/Coco Budda. He was a mentor and a inspiration in the craft of Hip Hop that I had the pleasure of knowing for some years. Now He has returned to the essence and will truly be missed. Much LoV3 for you big homie. Rest in Power
I was awakened this morning to the news that my friend and former co-worker CoCo Budda has passed away. In addition to working at K104 and being the voice of the station for YEARS, Coco and I worked closely together on the Doug Banks Morning show for six years. During those six years we became family. We used to travel together, I would attempt to braid his hair, he would call me and we would stay on the phone talking for hours. He often gave me career & love advice and made me laugh until tears rolled down my face during those calls. I loved this dude! He told some of the wildest & greatest stories! The man had charisma & personality for days! He was kind, funny, complicated, real and downright a good person w/ a good heart. I had some of the greatest times with him and have some of the greatest memories. I’m thankful I got to know the REAL him and will cherish our time together. It’s hard to believe and sooo hard for me to write and comprehend. Sadly the tears today are flowing for another reason and I send love and prayers to his children & family. RIP CoCo you will be missed.🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 #cocobudda #radiofamily #legend.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as family statement on the death is yet to be released.
