Former Block Starz Music Artist Ceddy Bu Rap Sumo Killed In Wreck

Cedrick D. Smith, better known as Block Starz Music recording artist Ceddy Bu Rap Sumo, was killed in a single car accident in the early morning hours of January 3, 2014 according to the Louisiana State Police.

Smith, 24, wasn't wearing his seat belt when the car he was riding in ran off the road and struck a telephone pole. The driver of the car was 23-year-old Wilbert Pryor. He was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Pryor was also unrestrained at the time of the accident.

State Police are waiting for results of a toxicology report to determine if he was impaired, but excessive speed is considered to have been a factor in the crash.



Smith first gained notoriety with a series of viral Youtube videos featuring the 400-plus pound rapper delivering freestyles while shirtless, which brought him to the attention of Block Starz Music in 2012.

Smith made his national debut as Ceddy Bu Rap Sumo with the song “Macho Man” which appeared on the label's Down South Block Starz compilation in the summer of 2012 and his collaboration “Don't F Around” from labelmate Lega-C's major indie debut Off My Medication in 2013. Block Starz also arranged for Ceddy Bu to appear on the TruTv comedy series Upload with Shaquille O'Neal.



Block Starz Music founder Bayer Mack issued the following statement via the label's Facebook page:

“We are deeply saddened by the news of Cedrick's passing and send out our prayers and deepest condolences to him ans his family. He will not only be missed by the those that knew him, but also by the thousands of fans he touched with his music and humor.”
