Comedian Rasheed Thurmond Passes Away From Heart Attack

Brooklyn’s own Rasheed Thurmond passed away of a heart attack this week. Who is Rasheed Thurmond? You may have seen him on Diddy’s Bad Boys of Comedy, Def Comedy Jam, or maybe you’re local and caught his act live at The Apollo.

One thing is for sure, every time Rasheed performed he had the people doing all that LOL and LMDFAO stuff.

It’s crazy to think that someone so young (36) and happy would have heart problems. One reason why pomegranate juice is my new best friend.

Here are some YouTubes of a brotha that went too soon. R.I.P.

Rasheed ever since we were little you were cracking jokes.  My brother and I remember you standing below the window when we were on punishment cracking on us because we were fighting to look out the window.  You will always be my Sheedy.  I loved you before you were big time and I will always love you.  Its hard to think that you are gone - I pray you are in a better place.  God Bless you and your family!

Thinking back to our days at Le Bar Bat, I loved your comedy man.  Always had me cracking up behind you on the stage.  Then you would come downstairs and get your groove on the dancefloor.  I knew there would be a day when we would crack up again.  I can’t believe that day will never come again.  Gonna miss you dawg.  Can’t believe this.  And still…..Papi’s no snitch.

I am deeply saddened by this. We taped the new season of Def Comedy Jam this year, Rasheed had a great set!

Dang, that is a shame. You were a great comedian, good looking with a sexy voice. I was just browsing online and I recently found out (about 20 seconds ago) that Rasheed died of heart attack. I can’t get enough of “papy ain’t no snitch” and Mr. Rivera.  I know what it’s like to lose a family member at a yound age. My dad passed away at the age of 38 and also to heart attack. The good ones never last.  RIP Rasheed and my prayers go out to Thurmond family. I

gravatar iconmuhiadinahmed- Sat, Dec 01, 2007 - 1:42 am

One of my favorite comedian on the youtube. I live in Canada and I’m amateur comedian, Rasheed became my role model and he inspired me greatly with his original jokes and natural delivery. Rest In Peace.

I just heard the terrible news yesterday. I spoke to Rasheed in late Sept. regarding a booking in Rockland county. Although we couldn’t arrive to an agreement he made negotiations very pleasant! All who ever had the opportunity to speak to this very talented man would know FUNNY doesn’t even begin to describe him. To his family, friends, and fans, I offer my deepest condolences. Keep God smiling for those of us who are not that funny.

Oh my goodness Rasheed, Where do I began?  I miss you man.  You know me and Trina had to come out last night for the memorial for you at the Laugh Factory.  I just felt that you were gonna come out and get on the stage and be like Yo, ya’ll are bugging.  Why ya’ll watching me on a projector screen. lol.  Your Mom was there, she is so sweet.  But really, Rasheed, You met alot of people and you touched alot of people and though the Lord took you away from us so untimely I believe you served your purpose here on earth.  Everyone, had something good to say about you.  Rasheed, your jokes live on as long as there’s breath in my body, because you know I know all of your jokes, I’ll still be representing for you at the Bronx BBQ’s, I’m still gonna be wathching your Dvd’s and everything.  I don’t ever want to forget your voice,  Your number will remain in my phone for as long as it can.  I’ll also remember this is not the end…. Till we meet again.  Love ya.

Life is really strange!  I looked at “Papi” yesterday and it had me running for the bathroom.  I shared it with a friend and same thing.  Today I thought, this guy is so good I’m going to look for some of his other work.  Then I read “Comedian Rasheed Thurmond dies at 36”  I thought “what the…”  He made his mark though and that’s important.

Although I was fairly new to Rasheed’s comedic genius, I was deeply saddened to learn (at the end of his Def Comedy Jam sketch), that he’s been taken away from us.  We may not know why this had to happen to such a HILLARIOUS young brotha, but GOD has a purpose & a plan.  My prayers go out to his family & fans during their period of mourning.

Be Encouraged!

Rasheed Thurmond,
I felt like I knew you….What a funny individual you were…I just watched the HBO Def Comedy Jam and was shocked when it showed the RIP at the end of his set..I did a mad dash to the computer and googled him. I had to know what happened. So sad, sooo tragic. Made me think of how I felt when Robin Harris passed. Gone way too soon but not forgotten.
That “Uncle Dope” routine was fire!..I laughed so hard I started coughing! My condolences.

I asked her if you were really funny and she said yeah but you had passed away. Whoa Papi, why? My condolences to your entire family and your baby girls. Much respect, love and guidance til we meet again. You will be dearly missed. Peace and Love Brotha Rasheed.

I was an instant fan when I seen Raseed on Bad Boy’s of Comedy. My favorite part of his 6 minutes was when he was talking about Jamaicans, it was so funny because that is how my peeps act for real. So when I heard he was going to be on Def Comedy Jam I was so happy. I watched his performance and was on the floor from laughter because this cat is funny, as it started to say the last joke about his uncle in the Amusement park I noticed that it was a pause and the his name and birth and death was presented on the screen. It’s sad because I know he was going to be the next big thing. Big Up Rasheed R.I.P!

This first this magnificent comedian was brought to my attention was last night while watching the new season of ‘Def Comedy Jam’. He performed his “Uncle Dope” set and that was the funniest s*it I’ve seen in a long time. At the end of the set, they flashed his date of birth and date of death across the screen while simultaneously, I was at the computer googling his name to try and find him performing live somewhere. I felt as if I had lost a brother. That’s how infectious those six minutes that he graced my screen were.  How come I hadn’t heard of him before?  What rock do I live under? All I know is he would have definitely been at the top of his game had he had the chance.  Damn!! Just when I thought I was about to get my laugh on…he’ll be missed.

Just wanted to say GOD bless the family of Mr. Thurmond.  Like many others, I caught the performance on Def Comedy Jam.  It was a good performance, and the ending said “RIP” I was like c’mon.  So I searched the internet and it was true.  May the family continue to stay strong and keep Rasheed name alive.

GOD Bless…...

I was watching DEF Comedy Jam and saw Rasheed on there for the very first time. I really enjoyed his comedy only to find at the end of the show that he had passed away. I couldn’t believe it. The brother was so funny, so young and so handsome. I will pray for his family…and Uncle Dope. Much Love

Just finished watching Def Comedy Jam and read the caption about Rasheeds passing…I had to instantly google him to find out what happened.  My prayers go out to his family, he was hilarious.  I loved him on Diddy’s bad boys of comedy, laughter does wonders for the soul.  You will be missed.

Me too just seen him on HBO performing his set and found out he died. Dude had me rolling on “Brand New Old Clothes” cuz everyone got an uncle like that. R.I.P., it’s such a shame to see him pass when his career was about to reach a higher platform. I heard he had a family history of heart problems, so I’m sure what he had was hereditary.

just saw def comedy jam and the caption on the bottom. you know, it is truly sad when the entertainment industry loses someone who is in their prime.

Just like everyone else that has commented, I too, just learned of his passing from Def Comedy Jam.  It was the first time I had seen or heard his material.  When they flashed the date of his passing, I jumped up from my couch in disbelief.  It was the first time I had seen him and he had me at, “What’s good?”  Loved that voice!

I am so sorry to hear that this great talent has passed away.  I first saw Rasheed on Bad Boys of Comedy. I laughed so hard and became a fan right away.  When I saw Def Jam on Sunday night I was so excited to see that he was going to be on the show and couldn’t wait to hear his act.  When I saw the dates at the end I WAS SHOCKED!!  I couldn’t believe it. 

Rasheed, you will be missed!!

i live in long beach, ms.  i don’t even know anyone he imitated, his ‘papi’ nor the “hello goodnight”, i just know this comedian was hilarious, and he made such an impact on me that i re-watched every badboys of comedy rerun they played, just looking for him! i was very happy to see his name on this weeks’ def comedy jam..  man, rasheed had the sexiest voice i EVER heard, EVER. i think he is truly the ONE black man i WOULD leave my husband for.  and i know i’d “never go back”.  breaks my heart that he’s gone.  i guess violence is not the only robber of dreams.  God bless and may your memory be eternal.

My heart hurts because I, like many others just learned of Rasheeds passing today.

To his family you will remain in my prayers. To Rasheed you were and always will be a gift from god. The days and nights that you have filled with laughter will never cease thank-you for sharing your gift with me I will always love you.

Someone asked me back in January if I knew the comedian who died, I said I didn’t think so. I had absolutely no idea it was the same Rasheed I saw perform in November 2007 for Rob Stapleton’s Laugh factory event in Times Square.

Tonight, Feb 21, I just watched his 2007 Def Comedy Jam performance. I’m truly saddened to hear of his passing and blessed because I got to see him perform live, shook his hand and told him how I enjoyed the show.

His sudden passing has left me wondering… Just how long I should wait before I start using his jokes. Now this is a comedian whose jokes killed.

Rasheed you were loved and will be missed… I’m going to add your videos to my myspace page in your memory. I respect you.

When I got around to watching it I almost deleted it without watching the whole thing because it wasn’t funny.  Luckily I waited until the end and got a chance to see Rasheed.  I laughed my ass off and rewinded him like 2 or 3 times.  When I finally let it get to the end and saw that he had passed I was torn up.  I couldnt believe it.  I hadnt heard of Rasheed prior to this but I wish I had.  I did a search on him and here I am.  For those that knew him I can only imagine how special he was to you.

I was driving down the road on I-20 Atlanta, talking to my wife, who happens to be white, in the car yesterday. We were talking about funny people and she mention Bebe’s Kid. I explained how Robin Harris was such a young comedian and died in sleep. Last Night we taped Russel Simmon’s comedian and watch this morning. We were crushed to find out this young man had died. We recalled his voice from Bad Boy’s of Comedy and “The old hispanic with the Five dollars.”
God bless his family and young man you will be missed. R.I.P. Have a blessed weekend all.

I’ve seen him on TV before and thought he was hilarious. Then, I saw a recent Def Comedy where they ran his dates across the bottom and I realized he passed away. I have never ever looked up someone online after seeing something like that. But this guy touched me. He was truly gifted and I am shocked and saddened that he’s no longer with us. God bless his family with peace and the knowledge, he touched the world.

To the Family and Friends of Rasheed Thurmond,

First I would like to pray that God be a comforter to you during your grieving time Matthew ch5 verse 4. My husband and I saw his act a couple of years ago, and I threatened my husband not to ever erase my dvr. Like every one else shock came at the end of the DCJ showing that Rasheed had passed. Living in VA but being from NY we could appreciate the cat on the bread and with my husband being Jamaican (Hello Good Night).Uncle Dope(off the charts)!!! Having HAD breast cancer,at the age of 32, I strongly urge everyone young and old to take life seriously, go to the doctor, eat organic, and most of all give your life to God (live right according to the bible) it is not how u start, but I you finish and who you belong to when u finish (heaven or hell) choose yea this day who u will serve. Every man or woman must give an account for himself!!!

Respectfully submitted to all that read this site
Love Tanaisha from Queens NY 2 VA

It was awfully shocking and saddening to find out you had passed, immediately after the “Uncle Dope” performance had aired on Def Comedy Jam. I really was taken back. I really enjoyed not only that performance, but the Bad Boys of Comedy act has to be one of my all-time favorites. I was looking foward to seeing you perform live.

I’m glad to see so many other people recognized your talents. I thought you we’re the next best thing. Maybe it’s that ol’Brooklyn pride, but although I didn’t know you personally, I was definately proud to see you rock the crowd.

I would like to send my Condolences to the Thurmond Family..And Rasheed you will be remembered.

I just found out while watching an old rerun of DCJ.  Rasheed was definitely a brilliant comedian…his material was fresh and his delivery was tight.  This is so sad…His laughter will live on for me always.

RIP Rasheed

I am greatly sadden by hearing the death of this comedian that could of been another Kings of Comedy.  In the pass week I have heard of Bernie Mac death and now this.  The Lord needs comedians too, so laugh on, laugh on, your work was done.  I know it has been over a year but you are still funny.  May your family continue to be be bless with your memories because you still live on.  May God Bless a loving fan.

“Wat the blootclaat man. Mi neva know seh di comedian dead.”  Rasheed was the funniest ever. Most Jamaicans dont like hearin people poke fun at us but for Rasheed we made an exception.

So, so sad.

Made me mad when I read he is no longer with us.

Was just trawling YouTube watching some Def Jam comedy and happened apon some of his brilliant performances.

You could tell he was different by the way he approached the mic like he was just talking to someone he knew.

Life is not fair.

Hey Brother!  Tears are out of control once again, missing you man for real.  I thought I was gonna be stronger than I am right now but you know I’ve always been the cry baby of the family.  Damn duke sometimes it feel like you are going to call me or knock on my door any moment.  When I seen you in the casket, I was like nah that ain’t my brother, Duke; swear it looked nothing like you but God works things out for everybody in different ways because when I think about it, if you would have looked just liked yourself, God knows what my condition would have been then or now.  I can’t seem to let go Duke and it hurts like hell.  Everybody say in due time I will heal but Duke when you died, it left me as a shell, I lost my brother, my protector, the love of my life, my strong hold, my happiness and the list never stops Duke.  I try to keep you out my mind because the very thought of you makes me cry and I can’t stop when it starts.  Damn Duke; if I had the blessing of Mary in the bible; I would beg Jesus to bring my brother back just like he did for Lazarus but if I continue to live my life right, I see you and dad in heaven.  Till then Rest on Brother!  Have your rest and know brother I am out to fulfill every dream that makes life for me so special and I got you to thank for that.  Even though you died young, Brother you lived your dream and proved that dreams really do come true so you inspire me in life and death.
  Luv you always-Tahirah Thurmond

I had NO idea Rasheed was gone.  This has really been shocking to me. So unlike most my grief just begins.  Rasheed was so amazing.  His countless jokes would brighten up the most dismal day.  I had been sitting here needing a pick me up because I was having toughts of my mother who passed away last year from cancer. I automatically thought of Rasheed’s comical greatness.  My mom always said when you smile the world smile with you.  Rasheed gave this world something to smile about until eternity.  RIP

gravatar iconKayla from London, England- Sun, Dec 14, 2008 - 7:54 pm

I was just given a copy of the latest Def Comedy Jam and saw this guy Rasheed come on and thought, “hey! This brother is hotttt!”  And as I listened and laughed my ars* off at his ‘Uncle Dope’ I thought, I cannot wait to see more of this guy. And then at the end of his performance, I saw the tribute and burst into tears - I could not believe it!  There aren’t many comedians who can keep me hooked to the screen and laughing out loud but Rasheed did and he looked like such a lovely person to know - it is such a shame.  My prayers go out to his family and like others have already said, God needs a good laugh too!  Stay blessed Rasheed - R.I.P

I’m a super NEW comedian who was searching for inspiration the night before my first show last friday, don’t know how I got to Rasheed’s videos but I can honestly say when I found them I believe they changed my life… Everything happens for a reason. I watched EVERY clip a brotha could find, took a walk @ 2:30am got my mind rite, and DESTROYED my first show EVER while givin Rasheed a shout out… Crazy thing is a Comedy Central Rep happened to be in the building and after doing comedy for ONLY a month I have a meeting with Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham” after 1 show… I will always study and shout out Rasheed as I climb to the TOP!!!

Tonight, I cry for you.  Five years later feels like yesterday.  I told God I have acceptance but I’m not sure about healing.  When you heal, the pain goes away, despite the scars.  Tonight, I cry for you, a million tears.I just wish upon a billion star, but it is what is is.  I miss you man, my son miss you man.  He looks just like you and I just wish brother.  I recognize that I have acceptance but I continously pray for healing.  I cry a lifetime of tears for you.  I just wish brother this was a bad dream that I wake up from.  I just wish brother, especially tonight.  I miss you but more I want you to rest in peace.  Khalid hurts so bad and I know the feeling.  I just wish brother.  I am praying to God for healing and acceptance.  I got acceptance but healing is hard.  I cry at the thought of you but it’s all good cause I know God makes no mistakes.  You rest on brother, you rest on.  I just wish brother..I just wish…R.I.P
