“We lost and I can say this our Dad Mr. Lorenzo Ridenhour,” read Shocklee’s reflective post. Over the countless years, the relationship between Chuck D and Shocklee grew into a familial one. The sincere Shocklee would address the late-Mr.Ridenhour instrumental presence in his life.

“We will surely miss you and your stories about your life travels,” wrote The Bomb Squad producer. “You taught us so much about having your own business and you saw the blessing of what we became. I thank you for being there for us to teach and show us how to be MEN. May you rest easy,” were his concluding condolences.
