Yesterday, friends, family, and members of the hip-hop community gathered in Tampa, Florida to bury Gregory Jacobs, a rapper and producer better known as “Shock G” of the Digital Underground. And MTO News managed to get exclusive pictures from the funeral.
Hundreds of people came to the AME Church at Allen Temple, 2102 N. Lowe Street, Tampa to reflect on Jacobs’ life and career in music.
Famous entertainers including rapper Busta Rhymes, record manager Jermaine Dupri, singer CeeLo Green and members of Digital Underground appeared on a live stream of the service to offer their condolences.

At one point in the moving ceremony, one of Shock G’s closet friends – and a member of Digital Underground – collapsed and started hugging the coffin. It was a really moving moment.
Shock G is survived by his mother Shirley Kraft; Father Edward Racker; Brother Kent rascal; and Sister Elizabeth Racker.
