Dolla’s brother, rapper Will “Scrapp DeLeon” Robinson said Dolla did not fear death, Dolla wanted people to wear white and celebrate his life at his funeral. Thank you to peach-lips.com for sharing the following:
During Saturday’s service, Scrapp DeLeon stood at the front with close friends and family, including DJ Shabazz, who was with Dolla at the time of his death, and reflected on his brother’s family life and path to fame.
“It was never me or I; it was we, us and they,” Robinson said of Dolla, who was signed to singer Akon’s record label. “He put other people in front of himself.”
He shared the text message he sent to his brother after his death, including this sentiment:
“My big brother has died, but I gained a bigger angel. I always knew you were too good to be here.”
