Some sad news today from over the weekend, as Lashawn ‘Sugar Shizz’ Talbert passed away on Saturday at University Hospital. Talbert was shot in the head while sitting in a car in Okolona this past Wednesday. Local rapper Kenzo, put the dance to a beat and inspired a dance phenomenon that was adopted by the University of Kentucky’s John Wall – propelling the dance to national prominence.
