In an elegy he wrote for Red Bull Music Academy, Houston Rap and Houston Rap Tapes co-author Lance Scott Walker wrote of Wickett Crickett, “His contributions are at the core of early Houston rap music, along with the mixtape legacy of Darryl Scott, the record company blueprint of Rap-A-Lot Records founder James Prince or the nightlife of club magnates Ray Barnett and Captain Jack.” That’s about as fitting a sentence as there may ever be about Wickett.
Plans have been made to give the MC a proper burial, so an official GoFundMe page has been erected in his honor to assist with the costs. Previously, an unofficial GoFundMe was launched to help contribute to his medical expenses; that campaign raised nearly $7,900.
Though official funeral arrangements will be announced later today, MC Wickett Crickett is lying in state at Ross Funeral Home, located at 3618 Lyons Avenue.
