New details have emerged in the shooting death of Far Rockaway Queens rapper Stack Bundles. According to New York Newsday, Stack—whose real name was Rayquon Elliott—was shot at around 5:00 a.m. Monday morning (June 11) as he returned to his Beach Channel Drive home. He was shot once in the head and once in the neck in the lobby of his building. His cash and credit cards were found to still be in his possession, although a medallion he was wearing appears to be missing. Authorities told Newsday that a friend who had been walking with the Byrdgang rapper ran back to the building after he heard shots, but the assailant had already fled. Stack was 24 years old.
Diplomat Records President Freekey Zekey issued the following statement this afternoon regarding the death of his friend and label mate:
“I just want to say life is never promised tomorrow, so you have to live your life to the fullest. Sometime you question the lords actions on certain things, but you just got to live stead fast So don’t make this a situation where you claim up and go in a shell. Big shout out to the big homie, we love you and will always remember you. Stack is a true solider. I’ve been [in similar] circumstances three years ago and it’s really killing me inside. He was young and I’m very saddened by this loss. I was with Stack last night in Stereo and it’s just hard to leave someone a few hours ago to hear they had an untimely death. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family especially his sisters.”
