Drakeo the Ruler’s brother, rapper Ralfy the Plug, vowed to keep his name alive after the 28-year-old was stabbed to death earlier this month. On Thursday night (Dec. 23), Ralfy shared a tribute to his older brother on Instagram, the first time he’s spoken publicly since the tragedy.
“[Drakeo’s] name gone forever live on,” he captioned a series of pictures of his brother. “Literally was a king that got it out the mud and I watched it all from the start, from recording all yo lil freestyle[s] and post[ing] ’em on YouTube, watching [you] smoking on the porch [and] waking everybody up to spit this hard ass shit you be coming up with in 10 minutes effortlessly, to going to camp back to back… Beating indictments, starting yo own label and even getting a song with Drake, [the] biggest artist in game. And you did it by yo self.”
According to Drakeo’s mother Darrylene Corniel, Ralfy witnessed his brother’s stabbing. Speaking with Rolling Stone days after the incident, she said Drakeo, Ralfy and a few others were backstage at the Once Upon A Time In L.A. Festival when they were “swamped” by a group of attackers.
Corniel said she intends to sue the venue for not protecting her son.
“They let all these people in and you’re not supposed to have all these people backstage. And your security is supposed to be in place,” she said. “You had more people come in than you were supposed to and you allowed them to jump my son.”
