|Let the memory of Shabaka be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Shabaka Ahdee Lazimba, 30, born on November 16, 1981 and passed away on January 24, 2012. We will remember him forever.
"This is a poem written by Shabaka that I want to share:
Ya’ll Aint Got ME
You see tha enemy think they got me, but
Oh no ----------------
See cause I aint no brotha whos all about
I does it fo my people, tha people
They give ya’ll money and you forget we is equal
See we really fightin fo the same thang, undastand
its like we bangin and we all str8 same gang,
you gotsta fill yo brain, dont let them make you change
fo a stack of money, gold rangs, and some gold thangs
cause on tha real, we tha strongest force,
thats why they tryinta lead every black man off course, wit
no remorse, that’s what they do, And if you
aint doin nothin fo tha people – well then they got you ---
you best believe in that, but we could bring you back
just realize so we don’t get caught up in they
traps, and they got plenty of em, it’s a warzone
so get educated so you’ll know what dirt ta step on"
"Thinking of you today. We love you so and speak of you so often. Today my students will learn about you and we will do some lessons around unity and liberation, in your honor.
Whisper to us from heaven and let us know it is you in a way we cannot deny it. We love you and are grateful for the many ways you touched our lives and continue to do so.
Blessed be and peace to your sweet soul, Shabaka.
All our love,
Aletha and Boys"

"I know you're resting in power!"
"It's been 3 years since you've been gone and I still can't believe the person I used to fight with every single day is gone. It still feels so unreal. I mean to the point where I don't even talk about it. You were more than just my uncle you were more like my brother and my protector. We always fought but I always knew it was coming from a good place. I miss you more than words can explain. I know watching over us and probably still staying on my case about not listening and being hard headed. I'm working on it lol. I love Unc and Happy Birthday!"
"We've been thinking about you very deeply these last few days, remembering your smiles, your fun on your birthdays, and conversations we have with you even though you are not here with us in flesh. Always there in spirit and love......."
"Love and miss you, Bak. Think about you everyday. Our love for you remains strong. Rest in power, sweet Baki"
"I miss you"
"Youth - by Shabakla Lazimba
The youth, is why the elders weep
The mountain needed to be climbed is so steep
They cant run, cant hide, so they stride and
unconsciously abide, the wicked pride
So put it aside, lets reside to walk in the footsteps
Of those who strived, and stayed alive, through all the
Jive, and trickery, causin all the bickery
Attitudes of a false history
See, the truth is not a mystery, but its cold, bold and blistery
So tears fall from the eyes’
of those who see the prize,
Drops of happiness and sadness,
All the youth in this should grab this
Once it happens its like magic
Better yet like automatic
Respect for the masses, should be taught in all the classes
In every grade that passes, we need this water for our grasses
In every generation for all’s emancipation,
Love, respect and equalization, is the main education
Visualization of a nation with that realization
Ooooh weee, how beautiful to be --------
In a world where her is just as he, they have and
So do we,
To live is just to be -------,,"
"Hey Baka I was just thinking about you.
I love you man!"
"We had a beautiful day at Mt. Hope Cemetery today celebrating Shabaka's life. Thank everybody for coming, loving, and enjoying each other. Shabaka's spirit was definitely there with us. And thank everyone who called, texted, and emailed us their love and support. Never stop giving us your love. Together we will make a better world! Looking forward with love."
"Today Shabaka's Kentucky family remembers the very loving young man who came into our lives so many years ago. Shabaka was such a special gift and the most beautiful surprise when he came into our lives. He was the funniest, most energetic, free-spirited young man ever. We continue to adore him and his memory. May he rest in power. The Fields Family, Radcliff, KY"
"REST IN POWER, SHABAKA!"
"Shabaka made an everlasting imprint on my life in such a short period of time. He inspired me to walk without fear...as he did; To speak the truth and be direct regardless of what others may think...as he did; And to love, love, love and have faith in love~>"
"Shabaka, my sweet prince. . . I always called you my prince because you really held a seat on the throne of my heart. I will never forget the first time I saw you. I never fell in love at first sight until that day. God alone knows how much my heart aches for you, how much, even through the years, I will always love you, my gentle prince. Watch over & guide us. Miss you. Rest, sweet prince"
"Thank you everyone for your contributions."
