The veil is being removed over a friendship the general public had no reason to believe was dysfunctional. According to a statement from Turk, he is on the outs with Lil Wayne, Juvenile, Birdman and Mannie Fresh among others, over lack of support.
In the statement exclusively obtained by AllHipHop.com, Turk claims the Cash Money/Young Money bosses (including Roland “Slim” Williams) and Mannie Fresh did not provide any financial or tangible support on burial of his brother, Ronald Smith in 2010.
His father, Tab Virgil Sr recently passed on October 30th from an apparent homicide. Aside from support, Turk alleges he doesn’t even have an open line of communication with the men he’s worked with since 1996 and known longer:
I been calling texting you n*ggas and ain’t receive no call bacc…I’m through trying to make you nig*as look real. When my lil brother got killed I had to bury him out of my attorney fee$ money and now it happend again with my daddy and I have bury him by myself with no help from you so called FRIENDS.
Turk did state in an interview with XXL last year that Wayne sent him money while he was incarcerated.
Turk, whose real name is Tab Virgil Jr, is scheduling a “Homegoing Service” for his father at Lion Of Judah International Ministries in New Orleans this Thursday (November 7th). The viewing will be at 10 A.M. until the time of the funeral service.
AllHipHop.com reached out to Turk’s management, but they declined to comment on the issue.
