Default Mr Nubain, 1980-2017, RIP

Over on C6 general, a guy posted a thread and photo asking if anybody knew his best friend who was in the photo. Looks like Mr Nubian to me. If it is, he died this past weekend.
Somebody go to C6 general and verify. Thread is titled "anybody know this guy or car"

I sent a note to the guy that posted and said that I thought it looked like him and asked how he passed - - -

He was recently telling me about this exhaust he wanted so bad and I"m wondering if any of you recognize him and can maybe tell me what it was? If not, do you have any recommendation of what i should get? Looking to spend around $750. I included a photo of him hoping that may help.

Thank you,
Jake

I thought he lost his C6 when he was arrested?
Sucks if true.

Sad, but this was what I expected to happen. Odds were against him.

He had multiple second chances - sad news - addiction is no joke. May he be enjoying many skanks in a better place.

No matter, it's a shame, addicts can't control it.

Apparently, this new stuff no bigger than a grain of sand will kill you.
26 year old that was helping me was great until he got a few bucks in his pocket, then turned to **** in the course of 1 day.
2 of his close friends died within the last month and he still can't buck it.

quite possible! Every so often they mix heroin with cancer meds here! When that happens people drop like flies! I want to say that was going on in the last 3 to 6 months

Hoping that the profile that posted that is him, messing with the people that said this would happen...but it's a long shot.
RIP Nubain.
