I thought it was a drug overdose also. I liked Hi-5 but come on who created this obvious front of a story. An autopsy can reveal drugs versus an air conditioning unit.

I thought it was an accidental drug overdose. I would like to think he was at least trying to help someone with their air. But really it doesn't matter how he died, he's gone and nothing can bring him back. I personally knew Tony,so please remember him for how he lived and not how he died.

Yes, lets stop worrying about how he died and just pray for his family. Lil Tony left behind a young son and many family members that loved him dearly. How one dies is not what matters...look how Jesus died and he hadn't done anything. So that should assure us all that it doesn't matter about your death but how you lived.

Actually my sister works for the Waco Police Department, and what I think they are saying that he might of died from inhaling freon which is in air conditioning units..Some people who snort drugs sometimes inhale freon to get a quick fix. It is fatal also once it gets in your system. I would not feed into the media...Tony was a wonderful guy..knew him very well..I would just like to remember him in a positive light..he was an extraordinary young man..

Is this forum for real or are you mocking him? the man has died and it seems some people seem to be joking "air conditioning unit kills tony" etc etc
Let him rest in peace and wait until the autopsy report comes out. Some people have no shame

Sir, no one is making jokes about Tony's death at all. The media, heck people in general have so many stories about this subject. Whether you were just a fan or you knew Tony personally he will be missed and nothing is funny about his passing. He had so much more to give, but GOD said it was time for his angel to come home.

I think some have no respect and i think the title of this page led me to think people were mocking the man.
I think its tragic that a talented artist like that can die so young, if he was supposedly on drugs then its worse.
Anyway i hope the little homie rests in peace. Listen to "miss you girl" off their faithful album and hear tony just tear stuff up, big talent, big heart tragically cut short.

This stupid negra done got what was due him. Them negras is always hurting us, and now one of their own was killed. At least that is one less negra we have to worry about raping one of our women.
What goes around comes around. Watch what you say. Besides, Tony is gone (RIP) but you have many other Blacks around you. So get used to them. They aren't going anywhere anytime soon. As soon as one dies another is born. If you hadn't of stolen them from their homeland like a dummy then you wouldn't be complaining now. It's just like crying over spilled milk.

You have to understand, the so called "I hate mudpeople" and his wife/sister "negras is killing us" is from a very small, mostly backwoods, mostly white village in Jackson County WV. Most of them including "i hate mudpeople" dont even have an education, and its a place where the mother is the aunt, and the sister, and the daddy is the uncle and brother etc. etc etc....So they kinda have a hate for those that are better educated and well off, especially people that are not white. Hell, the computer he is using, well, I'm sure he broke into the one person's house in that village that has a job on the farm and is using it without permission. So, I guess we have to give the guy a break since his sister is pregnant with his child and can't afford a PC. By the way "mudlsinger" "PC" stands for personal computer. There, free education for you!
