WOW, my heart IS SO SADDENED... GREG was a great friend. I moved away & lost contact w/him 15 yrs ago. 2 years i ago i reconnected w- him. I am blessed to have met up and chattted with him because it was then i realized he has grown up into a MAN, at the same time he did not forget where he was from... We talked about life in gerneral and he stayed positive through out the conversation. He loved his wife & children and the life he was making for himself. I was very Proud of him. What i am MOST greatful for is having the chance to cross paths with him. Upon seeing him he had that Big Cheesy Smile and when i spoke to him you can tell he was smiling just by his voice.. HE was just 2 kind for words... I will never forget him........ He's the type of person YOU CAN"T 4Get or want to..RIP GREG... M.S..cali

Greg aka Baby dredd was a gr8 friend of mine, we did music 2gether and was close as family, I've been in cali for 2yrs and I had 2 hear about this through a mutual friend. this seems so unreal, I keep waiting for him 2 hit me up. He was not only a gr8 musician, but a gr8 man, I feel so bad for his family especially his kids. We all are devastated and will take a long time to get over this. but his memory will live on 4ever in our hearts and everyone who was blessed to hear his music. "we love you dude" - The Jonez Boiz.... RIP Greg Jarvis aka Baby dredd.

I was merely pointing out that this tragedy further validates two widely held truths:
1) Karma's a Bitch
2) Paybacks are Hell

There's no need for your salty, childish name-calling.

If you want to kill rappers, help to kill social injustice.

Kill poverty.

Kill racism.

Kill classism.

Kill ignorance.

Thank you.

I'ts amazing how people are quick to jude others, but yet they don't see all, nor tell all about the skelletons in there own closet. Greg Jarvis was not only a good friend, talented artist,he also was a husband and father.If more people look at themselves and not at others we would find that your not the angel you persive yourself to be. So to 39ehonor,nuke mexico,put yourself in the families shoes, or better yet those chidrens shoes who have to grow up without a father all because someone chose to rob and murder an inoccent man and bystander. So when I buried Greg I buried apart of myself. Remember it's ignorance and people like you that should keep their moths shut so as to better society...

Well there has to be a reason. Drug related maybe? Jealousy? Women? Guess it'll all come out.

I've been reading the previous posts and I must admit I never heard of Greg Jarvis. Sincere condolences to his loved ones and fans.

Please help me to understand who he is/was.

Where was he born? Educated? Musically talented?
Why did he live in Blandon PA? With whom?

Children? Married? Who were his close friends?

It is obvious he had alot of good friends. Tiny, did you know him personally?

Johnny Bling 13, how did you know him too from the music world?

Why was he murdered? did they catch the killer? why was he in Phildelphia?

Thanks for all truthful answers. This story is upsetting for me. Seemed like such a nice young man in a video I just saw.

Please ..no nasty responses. Waste of time.

HE WAS MY UNCLE! Every Saturday he was able to be in town he would wash and clean my car for me. If you needed help he would give it. He was a rapper in Philly for a show, he was always well-dressed, and if you listen to most of his songs it was about God and repairing the world. He was raise in a Christian home were I also live when I was younger. He made everyone around him laugh; like all my uncles do. He wasn't perfect, but no one is. He made mistakes, but we all do. No one deserves to die so crude.
