“He was excited and just glad to tell people, ‘Man, I’m signed with Interscope now. I told you I was going to do it,’ and all that stuff,” Uncle Ro said, according to DNAinfo.com.
“…He made it and they was mad,” Blood’s relative Allena Taylor told CBS Chicago. “They had a lot of people that was jealous of them and it’s sad. …He came from nothing to that. Look at him. He didn’t deserve that, though. Nan none of them. Darnell either.”
