Brooklyn Rapper Cavlar Slain

Cavlar R.I.P.

Sohh reports that Brooklyn Emcee Cavlar was murdered yesterday in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn. Cavlar (born Leval Lyde), 36, was gaining recognition with his “Step Up Your Game” DVDs featuring well-known stars when he met an early demise. According to reports he was leaving Fish & Crustaceans Quality Seafood in Fort Greene at 4:50 p.m. when, as he approached the maroon jaguar owned by his child’s mother, he was shot with a single bullet.

The co-owner of the restaurant, Charles Kearney, saw the whole thing happen. “He fell right in front of me,” Kearny told New York’s Daily News. Reportedly, the rapper had been arguing with the gunman and two men with him, all of whom ran after the shooting. He died at Brooklyn Hospital Center. Lyde’s uncle, Clarence Lamb, called the death “senseless.” “Young people killing each other…is fruitless,” he told the New York Post. “It’s crazy, just crazy.” A cousin who asked not to be identified, said the Lyde was “a kind person, a loving person.”

    Folks,

    Read this in the NY Post this morning and was stunned. I was actually slated to direct a music video for CAVLAR a few years ago. The project didn’t get done for a number of reasons, but I was happy to see him come up. He definitely stayed on his grind.

    What a loss.

    I met CAVLAR on the set of this movie I was in late last year. I can’t say that I knew him personally but it’s always sad to see someone you come across who’s just trying to eat like the rest of us get taken down. This is why no matter what niggas say they’re is no room for success in the hood unless they fear you. Not respect, anyone can have someones respect but fear is the only thing I see that keeps people alive. A lot of dudes respected CAVLAR’s grind such as myself, he was making a name for himself. I just wished he would’ve made it out. Respect.

    it’s unfortunate what happend to you. you were a product of your own twisted environment. A very smart man who struggled with your own demons within. Things were looking up for you and you started to show promise.. I hope in the after life you’re making wiser decisions. I loved you for you. Sad to see you go, content to know, you’re not suffering anymore.

    Damn baby, my emotions are running wild. I can’t believe you’re gone. I know you’re probably smiling down shaking your head at all of this predicted nonsense which is being said about you. Continue to watch over your loved ones. Soon enough I know you’ll point out who ACTUALLY DID IT… The Good Lord will definitely put that light on the culprits.. See you soon baby.
