Pusha T from the United States rap group Clipse has recorded a song paying tribute to extradited Tivoli Gardens strongman Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke.

The rapper is from the group which has done popular songs like Grindin, When Was The Last Time and Hot Damn.

Yesterday, the song, Dearly Beloved, that was done about Coke surfaced on the Internet.

In the song, Pusha T said: “Dearly beloved hail Dudus/ Machine gun chain smothered/ A mere child rebel soldier that’s what became of us/ Immortalised kingpins is what remains of us/ Money comes too fast for him to give it up/ And because of a war, he has to give it up/ First God then Dudus/ Rest in peace Vivian Blake. Shout out to Shower Posse.”

This is not the first time that a song has been done about Coke. Last year, Twin of Twins recorded Which Dudus that was very popular.

extradition

Coke was extradited to the United States last week after being caught by the police on Mandela Highway. In a search for him, more than 73 people were killed in Tivoli Gardens. The manhunt also took the security forces into inner cities, rural communities and upscale neighbourhoods where Coke and his associates were suspected to be hiding.

Dudus was indicted in the US on a range of drug and guntrafficking offences.
