Graveside remembered

Matty Trump is a standout producer who has a great track out with the amazing 18-year-old Dorchester MC who goes by the name of LT (who, by the way, is literally the best rapper in Boston right now: everyone who hears him ends up with jaws around their ankles going, "He sounds like a young Jay-Z."). We met Matty in the studio with LT a few months ago; today he checked in to remember the Graveside kids: "Ya, J [Jason Bachiler] was a intern from the studio I worked at, he was a great kid. I saw him last week [and] told him to come work at my new studio. He said he was gonna give me a call. It's so sad, I met the rest of the group at the studio a couple of times. I remember Fat Boy as [being] a really funny kid, and EJ was more serious. They all seemed really into their music and I don't understand why or how this could have happened."

Mr. Peter Parker, who hosted the group's CD this summer (which, he believes, has never been released), offered to give us a listen to it, on the condition that we sign a release stating that the members of the group "would not be attacked in your piece." As we said previously, Pete's worried (and not without plenty of reason) that when it gets out that a group of nice kids who pretended to be thugs in their music ("they were on some Mobb Deep meets dirty south hardcore rap shit") got gunned down in a real-life reflection of their music, the press will suggest that this is some kind of poetic justice. In the meantime, Parker's trying to protect what's left of their dignity: "This is a tragic event and I am deeply saddened by the loss of my friends, they were passionate artists and good people."
