Sad Sad day. My brother Big Kap passed away. I met Kap @funkflex and @jrosenblum1 thru my mentor number 1 @djriznyc …. Kap used to let me open up for him in the Palidaium and pay me $35. Sometimes he didn’t pay me at all but he had a way to still make u feel good about it. His voice in the clubs was tremendous!!!! Broke mad record like ain’t no nigga and get at me dog. I owe a lot to that man. I got my job at the Tunnel opening up cause Kap was always late. So REST IN PEACE the LATE GREAT BIG KAP. P.S. tell Biggie I said what up!!! #ripbigkap A photo posted by Cipha Sounds (@ciphasounds) on
