Stars from the hip-hop world have spoken out about the death of Stack Bundles
- and believe his murder was caused by 'jealousy in the hood'. The Byrd Gang member - real name Rayquon Elliot - was shot and killed outside his home in New York last week. He was rushed to a nearby hospital but died soon afterwards from his two gunshot wounds.
The funeral took place yesterday in New York, with rappers Jim Jones
, Juelz Santana
, Lupe Fiasco
and Joe Budden
in attendance - who took the opportunity to speak out against hip hop rivalries.
Budden says, "He was a great guy - great personality, very humble, just a character in his own right. I'm old enough to differentiate when to (be in) the 'hood and when not to do it. I don't think Stack was old enough to make those same decisions."
Hip-hop star Maino adds, "The 'hood is going to be the 'hood. People are still hungry and envious over what they perceive to be success."
No arrests have yet been made in connection with the star's death.
