Raymond Rogers (May 14, 1971 – March 28, 1999),[1] better known as Freaky Tah, was an MC, hype man and promoter. Freaky Tah was a member of a hip hop group called the Lost Boyz, together with Mr. Cheeks, DJ Spigg Nice, and Pretty Lou.[2][3]


On the night of March 28, 1999, on his way to a friend's birthday party, Freaky Tah was fatally shot by Kelvin Jones[4] while he was going towards the exit of Sheraton Hotel in Queens, New York. He was pronounced dead at the nearby Jamaica Hospital.[5] The getaway driver, Raheem Fletcher, was sentenced to 7 years in prison. Jones pleaded guilty to murder.[6] Freaky Tah was 27 at the time of his death, and is consequently a member of the infamous 27 Club.
