A Tribute to Funky Buddha
Funky Buddha, a member of New York Chinese rap group Notorious MSG, was gunned down on Oct. 2, 2005.
Police has no leads.
I made this music video as a tribute to Funky Buddha.
Update: It is rumored that the death of Funky Buddha may be a giant hoax.
Especially considering the band Notorious MSG is a parody of Notorious B.I.G. Many of their songs were modeled after other well-known rap songs, and their music video of “Straight out of Canton” is a spoof of NWA’s “Straight Outta Compton” and Beastie Boy’s “Sabotage”.
Regardless, I think choosing P. Diddy’s “I’ll Be Missing You” as the song track for the tribute video is well deserved.
