He said of his father’s death: “His ears just want to hear his voice again, and he needs more hugs, and another embarrassing kiss from him.”
The death came after Kangol was diagnosed with colon cancer in February 2021.

– *Kangol Kid:
The rapper was named Kangol based on his wearing Kangol hats, a very distinctive accessory of the hip-hop group in the 1980s, and he ended up getting an endorsement deal with owning the brand.
“The name Kangol means a lot to him,” Vikker (Kangol Kid) once said in an interview with Hot 97 during an interview.
The name is associated with him, as it was the hat that children wore, and on this basis he considered himself a wonderful child and that he was crowned like kings with this hat.”
One of Fequiere’s Kangol hats became something everyone loved and became part of the collection at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture.
In the few months prior to his death, Ficker spoke candidly about his dreaded cancer experience, as he urged his fans to get tested to check on themselves.
Kangol Kid has been sharing on Instagram his health updates, photos from his hospital bed, and photos of him with visitors from the hip-hop community, including rapper LL Cool J, as well as visits by fellow UTFO member Doctor Ice.
Publishing a picture in an interview with the Colorectal Cancer Alliance, at the beginning of this year, Kidd said, commenting on it: “This is the new look of hip-hop music with cancer,
Check yourself before that happens.”
