Peps Final Say
Wow I was extremely surprised to see this news this morning as Roach was extremely instrumental with many Dancehall classics. For the reported style of killing means to me that there was a element off intent. Sometimes when these news break it is hard to know whether it is true or a Hoax but if true I would like to send my condolences to the family of Patrick “Roach” Samuels and hope justice will prevail in such a tragic case of events.
