Antonym, the rapper who died Saturday in a helicopter crash on a fishing boat off the coast of North Carolina, was the latest to be remembered for his controversial lyrics.
He was a prolific songwriter and rapper who played a central role in the genre, including in the group of songs that went on to become popular as the “Roast” genre.
In the 1990s, the group had their own radio hit, “I’m a Rockstar,” which became a worldwide hit, but it also sparked controversy when its lyrics included references to drug use and violence.
As he left behind a family and friends, his family said in a statement that he would not be remembered in a “sensationalist, sensationalist manner.”
He was an artist, he was a person and he was our son.
We miss him.
