Damn big homie you was here one day gone the next. Why is it the good ones are the ones to die? Shit i told you can't whoop me! Imma miss you big homie. You were always real and kept it 100. You were a class act and a good friend and I'll miss those chess battles and you schooling me on life and putting me up on game. May God bless you and hold you tight. My prayers are with your family. You truly were one of a kind. I know you're gonna hold it down blood save me a spot in thugz mansion. Rest in peace. One, Erick "Eazy" Ortega
