Is Inspectah Deck Dead? Uh, No. Rumors Flow at BET Hip-Hop Awards
The 2010 BET Hip-Hop Awards took place on Tuesday, October 12. One of the things that came out of the award show is a rumor that Wu-Tang Clan member Inspectah Deck is dead.
So is Inspectah Deck Dead?
Uh, no. By all accounts, Inspectah Deck is alive and well. While Wikipedia is hardly the final word on such matters, there is no reference on the Inspectah Deck Wikipedia page about his death. There are also no reports from major media sources about the death of Inspectah Deck.
So how did the Inspectah Deck death rumor get started?
Here's what seems to have happened. During Raekwon's performance at the 2010 BET Hip-Hop Awards, the fellow Wu-Tang member said, "“Yo stop the music Premier…yo rest in peace my brother from the Wu, Inspectah Deck."
It appears that Raekwon was referring to the fact that Inspectah Deck's mother recently passed away. Sadly, the passing of Inspectah Deck's mother may have spawned an unpleasant rumor.
