Sunday was not the kindest day to Houston’s music scene. Hours after the community lost Mama Wes, DJ BabyJae posted to his Facebook account about the loss of KrackerNuttz brother Elroy Boogie who had been battling cancer the past few months.

He was only 27.

“I am truly at a loss for words,” said BabyJae. “A genuine soul taken too soon. We are all lucky to have had you in our lives. I will sincerely miss you my friend, my brother. Until we see each other again.”

Hours after the news broke hundreds if not thousands of friends and supporters ran to Elroy’s Facebook page sharing their favorite photos and sentiments of the popular DJ who rose to prominence in the city as a member of the famed KrackerNuttz. A benefit was started at local clothing boutique Premium Goods in honor of Boogie where T-shirts and tank tops with his cartoonish image plastered on the front were sold. Last year, Boogie was one of the main pieces in the fight against the City of Houston’s noise ordinance policy after the city cracked down on DJs and club owners at Boondocks on Westheimer.
