First got word on the possible death of the homie at the beginning of the month. It came out of nowhere and too many of my Howard University alum were buzzing about it via the social networks for me to just brush it off.
We were all hoping it was just an really really bad rumor or something that got blown out of proportion seeing as no one could provide documented proof.
That proof came in today in the form of a report in a New Jersey news column that not only identified Jubar “Esco” Croswell by name, but stated that his remains were found last week and the motive and cause are being investigated.
Remains??! meaning time has passed and there’s definitely foul play involved. How insane…
This was absolutely a post that I didn’t want to have to write…
Last time I spoke to my former classmate and all -around campus superstar Esco, he was on my block randomly and telling me about the things he’s got going on. He was tight with Lupe‘s FNF family, and we’ve all seen in him in the multiple appearances he’s made in print and music videos as a model. But out of respect I just want all that knew the man to show love today and pray that the questions all get answered, Justice gets served and the Universe Balances itself out.
I leave you with this video from ’05 featuring the kid.
