Stack Bundles’ life and legacy is put on display through tribute album, feature-length film

QUEENS, NY – Rayquon “Stack Bundles” Elliott was one of the most promising up-and-coming hip-hop artists of the early 2000s, but his potential was cut short when he was shot and killed on June 11, 2007 in the lobby of the housing complex in which he was living. Though he never had a chance to release his own full album, he did collaborate with many notorious rappers of the day and recorded as many as 600 of his own songs over the course of his short career.

That body of work is about to be put on full display through a series of films and music projects under the direction of the Stack Bundles Estate. His uncle, King Baby Don, his father, Papa Ray, and his former manager, Mike Dot, have formed a team that is producing, marketing and promoting a handful of Stack Bundles projects that will include never-before-released music, a feature-length film, short-films and videos, merchandise and a tribute tour.

First on the docket is a short-film called “Why Ask Why,” directed by King Baby Don, which has already been released on YouTube. It’s a film that King Baby Don said will highlight Stack Bundles’ contribution to the hip-hop industry and how his unique sound and style were a turning point in the early 2000s for rap music.

“He was responsible for a lot of things in the hip-hop industry,” King Baby Don said. “This short-film is a true story on what he was going through when he wrote his music – from trying to stay away from the drug game and getting away from the streets. His father gave him a microphone and told it was the tool of the family that he could use to get out of the ghetto. He got into music and tried to use that art as a way to gain success. But he was murdered before he could ever really make it.”

Stack Bundles died at the age of 24, but before that he had made a name for himself in the underground entertainment world. He was a powerful recording artist, fashion icon, producer and performer who had the respect of many in the industry. He started his career as a teenage recording artist with Lupe and 1 & 15 Records in Chicago. After that didn’t pan out, he returned home to New York and started working with Byno, Core 2G and the late Chinx Drugs – all of whom formed the group Riot Squad. This work got him recognition from DJ Clue and a contract with Desert Storm Records – joining other artists such as Fabolous and Joe Budden. He started gaining more fame on the mixtape circuit, where he would entertain thousands of fans around the country on Smack DVDs. Stack Bundles went on to help Jim Jones with his platinum-selling album “P.O.M.E.,” which contains the hit singles “Ballin” and “Weather Man.” Stack Bundles recorded “Weather Man” with Jones and Lil Wayne. He also toured the country with Jim Jones during the Street Dream Tour.

The music he recorded along the way will be featured on a tribute tour set to be released through Stack Bundles Estate. The launch event is slated for April 20 at the Oracle Lounge in Brooklyn. King Baby Don said he’s excited for people to finally hear Stack Bundles’ music because it will finally show the world his true talent as an artist. In fact, he said he’s hoping to be able to work with Jim Jones, DJ Clue, Miller and anyone else who might have samples of Stack Bundles’ music.

“The things that stood out about him were his swag and his work ethic,” King Baby Don said. “His family was all talented musically, but there was just something about him that was extra driven, motivated and hungry. He was always striving and thinking out of the box with bigger ideas. And that showed through his heart and his music. Everyone who knew him in the industry said the same thing: He was poised for some big things.”
