At the nine night-Spragga Benz
and Carlton's mother
As many of you know Spragga Benz's son Carlton was laid to to rest on September 13th. The sad thing it was bitter sweet for me. That was my birthday but also the funeral reminded me of all the craziness that is happening in this world. Some say we are in the last days. I believe them.
For those who don't remember the incident surrounding Carlton's death occurred on Church Street in Kingston when the police were on an alleged patrol. It was reported that Grant and a friend was riding a bicycle when ordered by the police to stop, which they did and one of them pulled a gun and fired at the police. The fire was returned and the men ran, the area was searched and Grant's body was found suffering from several gunshot wounds.
Carlton Grant Jr. successfully sat his CXCs earning 6 subjects. He will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace Carlton.
My girlfriend went to the funeral and called it a "Celebration of Life." She stated the theme was "angels" that was why they wore white.She said the singing was so beautiful by the Camperdown High School Singers.
