Let's have a moment of silence ...

... for Sean Levert.
News reports surfaced that he passed away while in police custody for some unknown illness. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
Levert, 39, is perhaps best known for being Gerald's lil' brother or Eddie's son, but he also belonged to the trio LeVert that brought us songs like, "Pop, Pop, Pop (Goes My Mind)," "ABC-123" and my personal fave "Casanova."
Because 39 is such a young age and because Gerald passed a little over a year ago, I started doing a little digging to see if I could find out the cause of death and found out that nobody knows. The only reports out say that he had high blood pressure and he was hallucinating while he was locked up.
With that said, I hope you guys who have been diagnosed with high blood pressure and anything else that can kill you are taking care of yourselves. These illnesses are no joke and they do not descrimante.
For the record, Levert was locked up for failure to pay child support and was getting ready to serve 22 months in jail for owing more than $80,000. I'll say it for you, "day-um."
That's a lot of money, but it was for three kids. I want to know how he got that far behind in the first place and on top of that, why in the name of heaven wasn't he trying to sing back up for somebody of get a side hustle to pay that?
Oh well, that's niether here nor there, just like I'm telling ya'll to take care of your health, take care of your kids too. There ain't nothing worse than a 'Deadbeat Dad.'
Man up and take care of your kids!
