(AllHipHop News) As more news emerges regarding the tragic death of battle rapper, LB da Boss, clarity has come on the role friend and battle rapper Bill Collector had in what has come to be one of the saddest moments in culture’s history.
On Sunday, July 26th LB was on a boat that turned over into the 20 ft. body of warm water while on a fishing trip with friends on the Hopewell Lake in French Creek State Park.
Bill Collector, whose real name is Eric Wilkinson, was not with the rapper on the boat when it capsized.
The confusion came because he was one of the first responders and voices to ask for help.
His urgent cry for help on Sunday almost immediately after it happened proved just as heroic as it was desperate. Understanding how quickly a “Search and Rescue” could turn into a “Search and Recover,” prompted him to go to Facebook and post frantically. His friend’s life was at stake.
