Here’s what Busta said:
” I was just informed by my brother @djpremier that @mfdoom’s correct Gday is 7.13.71. I’m a leave this up here for a few but then I’m gonna pull it down. I love this picture of God so I’m gonna repost it on his actual Born Day.
I’m about to post something else shortly in his honor anyway but it won’t be a Gday post obviously. REST KING REST.”
DJ Premier stopped in the comment section and commented:
“Salute To Your Legacy!!! Sleep Peacefully King! Happy Born Day!!!”
