Celebs pay tribute to Drakeo the Ruler
Artists and celebrities took to social media to pay tribute to the 28-year-old.
Drake wrote on his Instragram story: “Nah man this sh*t isn’t right for real wtf are we doing always picked my spirit up with your energy RIP Drakeo.”
DJ Akademiks added on Twitter: “RIP Drakeo The Ruler.”
While Jeff Weiss wrote: “RIP Drakeo, the greatest West Coast artist of a generation, a legend who invented a new rap language of slippery cadences, nervous rhythms, and psychedelic slang, who beat life twice only to suffer the most tragic fate conceivable.
“He was special, a legit genius and a kind, caring friend. There are no words to convey the grief.”
Drakeo’s attorney John Hamasaki said in a statement after his death: “We spent the hardest two years together fighting for his freedom, facing life, before walking out a free man just over a year ago.
“Through it, we became friends and then like family. I don’t even know how to start processing this.”
