Dem Franchize Boyz lost one of their members this weekend.
Gerald “Buddie” Tiller passed away from what appears to be cancer, according to posts from the group.
The group announced the tragic news on Sunday, writing on Instagram, “R.I.P. Buddie you Will be Missed #demfranchizeboyz.” Following their initial announcement, Jermaine Dupri–who signed the group to his So So Def label in 2005–payed tribute to Buddie following his death, also seemingly suggesting that he lost his battle with cancer.
Rest In Peace, Buddie.
