R.I.P. Stack Bundles, Remember His Name

On June 11, 2007 the hip-hop world lost one of its rising stars in Rayquon Elliott. Better known as Stack Bundles, the New York rapper was making his mark on the game when his dream of rap stardom was cut short at the young age of 24. On that fateful day, Stack was shot once in the head and once in the neck as he returned to his Beach Channel Drive home in Far Rockaway Queens.

Stack rose to fame in 2005 thanks to his mixtape work with DJ Clue, which includes Rap Makeover Vol. 1 and Biddin’ War, just to name a few. That eventually caught the attention of Jim Jones, who signed the rap rookie to his Byrd Gang crew in 2006. Also heading up his own team, The Riot Squad, what made Bundles an endearing figure was his passion for hip-hop and appreciation for his fans.

Possessing a sick flow and style, Stack dropped memorable verses on records like Joe Budden’s  “6 Minutes Of Death” and Jim Jones’ “Weather Man,” as well as underground gems like “Remember My Name,” “Temper Temper,” “Victory Lap” and a standout Hot 97 freestyle with DJ Funk Master Flex. Constantly showing and proving, he had the talent to be a force in the industry, but sadly his wings were clipped before he could  fully take flight.

With today marking the third anniversary of his passing, XXLMag.com remembers the late Stack Bundles with some of the more memorable tributes from his fellow artists. Remember the name. —Manny Madu

    Some Memories, you just can’t let go of, some people you can’t let go of and Love, is something you can’t let go of. He aint do nothing wrong to anyone. I think he just wasn’t as careful because he was young and had so much going on in his LIFE. I feel he noticed the people who may have envied him but it became too late, to get far away from them. Sometimes in life, the dearest people to you. May be held with more respect than they deserve and that’s when we get it mixed up. Like, i dont need to be around none of these mofos. Yet when you have a Heart of Gold, the enemy will come to snatch it, with it’s illness of jealousy, envy and hate.
    God Bless your soul Rayquon Elliot BossMan Stack Bundles. I Even learned alot from his death. Can’t do too much without the General & BossLady
