Alabama rapper HoneyKomb Brazy’s grandparents fatally shot, set ablaze in house fire
The rapper’s grandparents were found dead in their Mobile, Alabama home.
The grandparents of rapper Nashon “HoneyKomb Brazy” Jones were found dead following a house fire in their Mobile, Alabama home.
As FOX affiliate WRKG reported, responding firemen were called to the residence of Lelia and Tony Lewis on Wednesday night (Feb. 17) and arrived to see the home burning down in flames that went on to engulf the house next door.
According to the couple’s family, both individuals were fatally shot and intentionally set ablaze. A witness later confirmed the fire was preceded by gunshots. “All I heard was a boom. It sounded like a bunch of shots,” the bystander told WRKG.
“Lord have mercy. Don’t tell me they were up in there because Lord, I heard the children coming across the field crying. I pray for the Jones family. It’s just too crazy.”
Following the devastating news, HoneyKomb took to Instagram to mourn his grandparents’ loss in a heartfelt tribute that insinuates the deaths occurred as a result of his tensions with others.
“Long live grandma n grandpa. Y’all was my heart fr I put y’all in every song,” he wrote alongside a photo of his grandparents. “I hate y’all got caught up in my shìt smh. This shìt hurt main. I beg y’all to let me move y’all everyday, but y’all taught me how to be stand up guy. Y’all always told me if it’s our time, it’s our time. God got us.”
