I met Junior back in 2012 and was going thru a hard time. He always kept a smile on my face when he was around. I went with him when he got the dream catcher tattoo on his ribs and I kept picking on him asking if he was gonna cry and we just laughed and laughed. We first bonded over our same taste in music. (Icp) and instantly were bonded from just that. He had a great head on his shoulders and was so much fun to be around. One time he saved my # as my nickname then called me a while later and was talking to me like I was a tattoo shop. It was HILARIOUS! Although I didnt get to know him as well as others. He held a special place in my heart and always will. I was so sad to hear of his passing and I sebd my love and prayers to his family and loved ones. Keep it real in Shagri La my homie!!
