Dem Franchise Boys lost one of them this weekend ̵
1; Gerald Buddy Tiller died of what appeared to be cancer, according to the group itself.  DFB posted the sad news on Sunday, writing on Instagram … "RIP Buddie you'll miss #demfranchizeboyz." Jermaine Dupri – who signed to the band's So So Def label in 2005 and almost dressed them with his hit "Lean wit It, Rock wit It" – also talks about Buddie's death, and seems to suggest that he died of cancer.
On his own IG Hip Hop page, the tycoon refers to a line from Buddy's poem on "LWIRWI," writing … "" They call me Dr. Doc. I prescribe what it takes **** "#ripbuddy let your soul rest easy #demfranchiseboyz #f *** cancer."
Other rappers also expressed their condolences – – including Da Brat and DFB's colleague Parla.
Dem Franchize Boyz are perhaps best known for their hit two hits "Lean wit It, Rock wit It" and "I Think I Like It," and they both appeared on their debut album "At the Top of Our Game." They mixed "Lean wit It" with Korn, called "Coming Undoone Wit It."
