My heart began to race, “RIP?!” — I couldn’t search down his name fast enough to find out what had happened. I hadn’t seen or spoken to him in a while.
Apparently the larger than life comedian had lost his battle with cancer over the weekend. I was completely devastated upon hearing the news especially since I wasn’t aware that he had cancer.
I met “Sco” at Atlanta’s UPTOWN Comedy Corner club where he was a well loved staple and was known for his pimp-esque demeanor, street lingo and verbiage in his standup routines. Our first interaction was as if we had known one another for years, he reminded me of an uncle or the quintessential old school player from the hood. We were kindred spirits. I really took a liking to Sco and we always had a good time bantering back and forth at various social events as well as on social media.
I am absolutely heartbroken to know that Sco is no longer with us but I have no doubt he is in heaven keeping everyone entertained. He was an amazing guy, as real as they come.
My condolences go to his family. Anyone who knew Sco loved him. He was one of the last original OG’s left. He is already missed and VERY MUCH LOVED and ADORED!
REST IN PEACE!
