Hip-Hop has once again lost one of its talented young stars. Far Rockaway, NY native and Dipset Byrdgang member, Rayquon “Stack Bundles” Elliot, was tragically murdered outside of his Queens apartment yesterday morning, June 11, 2007. The news sent shockwaves throughout the hip-hop community. Stack, who was only 24-years-old, first stepped on the crowded New York mixtape scene as an affiliate of DJ Clue’s Desert Storm records. Stack held his own amongst other young talents such as Fabolous, Joe Budden and the A-Team, and created a lane of his own with his aggressive delivery and vivid tales of life in the infamous Queens neighborhood he called home. In 2006, he signed with Jim Jones’ Byrdgang Records imprint and was featured on the M.O.B. (Members of Byrdgang) mixtape and Jimmy’s Hustler’s P.O.M.E. LP. In a sad twist of fate, the neighborhood he so vehemently represented, and refused to leave, would become the stage for his early demise. Like so many other bright young stars, Stack's light was extinguished before he ever truly had a chance to shine. XXLMag.com remembers Stack Bundles by featuring some of his greatest work.
