Jaheim Performs During Malcolm Shabazz' Burial Service

Following a public ceremony held last week for Malcolm Shabazz in Oakland, the grandson of Malcolm X was buried on Tuesday in Hartsdale, New York.

Malcolm Shabazz, the grandson of the late civil rights leader Malcolm X, was finally laid to rest earlier in the week on May 21 during a private ceremony at Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale, New York. According to NewsOne.com, a funeral program obtained by the site revealed a special performance from R&B singer Jaheim who sung his Ghetto Love record “I Miss You (For Moms).”

The R&B star, who was reportedly a close friend of Shabazz’, recently announced the fall release of his upcoming album titled Appreciation Day.

Although Jaheim was not present at last week’s traditional Islamic funeral service, which was held in Oakand for Shabazz, the service was attended by over 200 people.

On May 9, Shabazz was killed following a fight with what may have been two waiters at the Palace bar in Mexico City over a bar tab. Shabazz, who was 28-years-old at the time of his death, was buried next to his grandparents Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz.

    Isn't it funny how someone like Lupe calls Obama the world's biggest terrorist because he authorizes drone strikes to kill Al Qaeda? Then when America funds the Al Qaeda-linked rebels in places like Libya and Syria, Lupe doesn't say anything? it just goes to show you that Lupe hates America but loves islamic fundamentalists. If Lupe EVER talks shit about my bosses son, Wayne, or Keef again, Keef is gonna put him on a feeding tube for life.

      If you didn't know, YMCMB fans are the most intelligent, best informed and most ambitious out of all hip-hop fans. So it makes sense that I am informed about foreign affairs. Ask Jay-Z fans about the middle east...they have no clue.

    • O.k dude

      Lupe is a 100 times better than chief keef and lil wayne all wayne raps about is drugs and pussy and chief keef is not at all in Lupe's class he only raps about violence also his rap still is basic with no song substance and Lupe doesn't hate america he DISAGREES with the politics involved, I'm not sure how you know so much about stuff like this considering who you listen too for music.

    Malcolm X's family is full of dirtbags including himself... Martin Luther King was a true leader and a great man, Malcolm X was just an angry black man

    Lesson to be learned here... Always tip your waiters.

      That is true to a certain extent; i read some world news story that stated the facility he was eating and drinking at tried to throw taxes on his bill and he refused to pay that. Rumors from locals said that place was known to charge americans for talking to the women who work for the bar as entertainment to lure men in, Malcom refused to pay that extra tax or fee they added to his bill and they used that to say he wasn't try to pay the bill at all. I think there was more to it. People who walk around with a teardrop on their face allows their enemies to recognize them first. Mexico is gang capital.What happened to him happens to lesser know people when they on gang turf
