T-Rock posted the following over Facebook:
Craig J Henderson better known as C-9 was one of the best rappers to do it.. We had just talked about him getting down with Rock Solid I had his first batch of tracks ready to send as we speak, smh I know God is is charge but we love you fam for your contributions to the game we now have a career in. I always looked forward to his verses on Tommy Wright III albums and any other track he ever spit on, it was actually a dream come true of mine to rock with C 9 on Chop shop which is on Independence Day 2.. Big Salute C 9 God bless your spirit and family..
