R.I.P. Video #35: Disco a.k.a. Loverboy (Flippa Boyz)



Recorded June 26, 2014, but released on July 6, 2014, in honor of Disco's birthday.

Broadcasting from tha abandoned Kings Park Psychiatric Center in Kings Park, NY, it's FrankieThaLuckyDog here, reportin' anotha tragic loss in tha undaground, Louisiana rap community. Dzandirian Tasker, known by his stage name Disco, or Loverboy, as a part of tha Gardere Lane rap group, tha Flippa Boyz, passed away in his sleep during tha morning of Thursday, June 26, 2014. Disco had been stabbed, and later shot multiple times, throughout tha past few years, becomin' a paraplegic. Today, Sunday, July 6, 2014, Disco would've celebrated his 34th birthday.

Disco was from tha St. Gabriel area of Louisiana. On April 11, 2007, he founded tha label, New Go Get It Music, with affiliates, Sims & Killa Sounz, as tha label's prinicpals. Tha label was originally known as just Go Get It Music, but had added tha "New" to it, to prevent confusion with Baton Rouge native, Barber Shop Black's label, that features tha Ville Boyz, and which was founded on March 6, 2006. Disco made a name throughout tha G-Lane area of Baton Rouge as a part of tha Flippa Boyz, with tha likes of Sims, Killa Sounz, Yung Yola, Beezy Bird, Needy Nee, Gee Gee (Gutta Gangsta) & Slim Pistol.
