Blvd Quick dropped a music video for his Fredo Bang-featured track “Slept On” hours before his death. The clip’s videographer left a comment in his memory.
“Rest in peace Blvd Quick. I’ll never be able to thank you for what you’ve done for me, my future, and this channel. Replacement isn’t possible.. I saw you just two days ago. Every shoot with you was nothing but fun, and every time we shot a video, we’d tell each other that it had to be the one. And this was the one. You just dropped and hit 100k in a day. In my eyes you’ll forever be missed.”
