Freaky Tah

Freaky Tah was only 27 when he was shot in the back of the head. He was a member of The Lost Boyz along with Mr. Cheeks, DJ Spigg Nice and Pretty Lou, and his gruff hype-man style helped the group chart on Billboard's Hot 100 with their debut single, "The Rich & Shameless," and their debut album, Legal Drug Money, which included 'hood classics "Renee" and "Lex Coups, Bimaz & Benz." That album, and their second, went gold.
