Many people in the industry were grieve stricken by the rapper’s passing, including Jermaine Dupri, who had this to say about the MC:

To the world Chris was MacDaddy but to me, he was a son I never had, as much as you may think I taught him, he taught me, God has blessed me to be in the presence of so many naturally talented people, and Chris was one. His understanding of what we set out to do, from day one was always on point. His passion for the music, his love for doing shows, his want to be better than everyone else, was always turnt up. When I think about it, I spent more time with Chris than damn near anybody in my whole life, so you can imagine how bad this hurts. I will always love you Chris, and I will never let the world forget you, may god bless your soul” (XXL Mag)
