Byrd Gang member Stack Bundles, real name Rayquon Elliott was shot and killed this morning around 5am in New York Monday morning (June 11) while returning to his Beach Channel Drive home.
Shot once in the head and once in the neck in the lobby of his building. Cash and credit cards left while a medallion worn by Rayquon appears to be missing. A friend who had been with Stack heard shots and ran back into the building, but the assailant had already fled, authorities told New York Newsday.
Stack Bundles, 24, was from the Far Rockaway section of Queens, New York. He was last seen alive at Stereo nightclub, where his evening was incident free. Stack Bundles was affiliated with DJ Clue’s Desert Storm and later became a member of Jim Jones’ Byrd Gang.
Freekey Zekey, Diplomat Records President has issued the following statement
regarding the death of his friend and label mate:
“I just want to say life is never promised tomorrow, so you have to
live your life to the fullest. Sometime you question the lords actions
on certain things, but you just got to live stead fast So don’t make
this a situation where you claim up and go in a shell. Big shout out to
the big homie, we love you and will always remember you. Stack is a
true solider. I’ve been [in similar] circumstances three years ago and
it’s really killing me inside. He was young and I’m very saddened by
this loss. I was with Stack last night in Stereo and it’s just hard to
leave someone a few hours ago to hear they had an untimely death. My
thoughts and prayers go out to his family especially his sisters.”
Lupe Fiasco has also issued a statement via MySpace bulletin:
R.I.P. Stacks Bundles…My Homey
My Dear Friend…it hurt so much to wake up to this…So sad…I’ve
watched from the humble beginnings…when he used to live with me out
in Chicago we rocked together everyday…He’d write rhymes in one room
and I’d be writing rhymes in the other…He was there with me through
many a milestone in my life , the up’s and the downs, and I was so
proud and happy to see him acheive success in his life at what he
loved…Hip-Hop…Stacks was the first person that was signed to
1st&15th way back when it first started FYI…Even beyond that I
considered Stacks family…My heartfelt condolences go out to his
family and friends in this time of sadness…We all lost a Good Friend
today…But He wont be forgotten…May God have mercy on his soul,
Forgive him for his sins in this Life, and watch over him in the next…
