Robert “King Robbie” Williams
When the “King of 79th Street” died earlier this year there was no way for the people he “served” to all say goodbye. So how do you nix that problem? Pull the lead car over in a gas station on 79th and Crandon Avenue and pull the casket halfway out of the back and let the people come out of their houses and apartments to pay their final respect. And to keep it real trill: Superimpose him on the cover of GQ magazine and use it as the obituary. This is not a joke people, this actually happened.
