However, that is all in the past as the family waits teary-eyed his body to be brought back home for a traditional burial, said Hussein’s elder sister Tammy Perkins-Cross,
“He wasn’t really about the fame, he was about being home with the people who loved him. That was in New Jersey, and that’s why we are bringing him back there.”
Though Hussein was best known for his work with the late Tupac, he had dedicated himself to bring up his own hip hop group The Outlawz. Fatal majorly grew up in Montclair before moving to the big city to claim his fame, reported NJ.
Growing up wasn’t easy for Hussein, shared his sister. Fatal grew up with 12 brothers and sisters in a home on New Street. Though he was never a problem child, he always dreamt of becoming a rapper, added his sister. Following his death, the locality where Hussein grew up has become a makeshift tribute. People have been streaming in all day and fans have been holding candlelight vigils there each night, she said.
“It’s very touching that the neighborhood is embracing him like that. I think they are ready for him to come home.”
Considering the past living conditions of Hussein Fatal it is understandable why members of The Outlawz, have been requesting donations to cover the cost of the funeral.
