His father was a rapper in the group Trinity Garden Cartel back in the 90s under Rap-A-Lot Record. While he was also managed by Bone of Boneafied Entertainment, who also manages Bun B.
“Damn. This was a good man,” Bun B wrote on Instagram Friday. “Humble. Hard-working. Loyal. Determined. Focused. And he had the talent. Queen saw him and told @boneafied
“That boy is good. If he don’t have a manager you should do it.” And he did, putting everything he had in it. We are heartbroken this morning and send our deepest condolences to D, Bone and all of his family, friends and supporters. Buy or stream his music and let’s keep his memory alive. #RIPChuckyTrill”
