Rest In Peace 5th Ward Weebie
New Orleans bounce legend and hip hop mogul 5th Ward Weebie aka Jerome Cosey has passed. He was just 42 years old. In 2014 the Amistad Research Center sat down with Weebie for nearly an hour and the New Orleans native was feeling particulary loquacious. Cosey had been in poor health of late dealing with medical issues brought on by high blood pressure.
