Nobody I know was at the funeral, but I heard a few things. First of all, like most funerals, I heard it was a completely sad affair. I mean, this is expected since Lighty was such a pillar in the Hip-Hop community. I heard Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliot, LL Cool J, Q-Tip and others were crying so much. I heard LL deviated from his speech and eventually muttered “Something ain’t right.” This leads to speculation by many that Chris Lighty didn’t kill himself at all.
Furthermore, some are pointing the finger to Chris’ widow. DJ Scratch tweeted the following, but my sources are saying that this represents the views and opinions of quite a lot of people.
Below is a news story that AllHipHop just ran.
Read that…and holler…
This is far from over…the plot thickens.
Chris and Veronica Lighty in better times.
Here she is doing an interview yesterday, but she has made several conflicting statements. Clearly, she looks distraught so its anybody’s guess.
