Mr. Cheeks made a contractual agreement to do a Legacy Lost Boyz EP through ONErpm. The group consisted of Mr. Cheeks, Kacey Chrysler, and the talented son of original group member Freaky Tah whose stage name is Freaky Kah. Chrysler who had known Mr. Cheeks for a decade was a hype man, videographer, and sometimes had served as booking manager for Mr. Cheeks, assisting Cheeks in getting a number of shows overseas and had earned Mr. Cheeks trust so much so, that Cheeks had entrusted Chrysler with his and the Lost Boyz social media accounts. Cheeks for the past decade would regularly shout Chrysler out in YouTube videos and Chrysler would be right next to Cheeks in interviews or when they performed “Lights, Camera, Action” at Sirius Radio. Chrysler who managed a number of Chrysler dealerships that his father owned was savvy with computers but also dreamed of a music career. Mr. Cheeks was trying to focus on being an artist and unwittingly had allowed “a wolf into the hen house”. Mr. Cheeks and Chrysler would eventually have a very public falling out with Mr. Cheeks publicly calling out Chrysler in interviews.
After a decade Mr. Cheeks close partnership with Kacey Chrysler had dissolved for reasons unbeknownst to some. A disgruntled Chrysler took control not only of the Lost Boyz and Mr. Cheeks Instagram accounts, Chrysler had also hijacked the Lost Boyz Spotify page and set up a Lost Boyz website. Kacey Chrysler is not a member of the Lost Boyz, nor is it a New Lost Boyz according to past interviews with Mr. Cheeks. What Chrysler has done is essentially attempt to hijack the legacy of the Lost Boyz, even changing their Wikipedia page. Chrysler was taking advantage of a “legal loophole” which existed because of the contractual agreements from the EP with ONErpm. By demanding that promoters book the Lost Boyz, Chrysler could show up at shows where promoters were expecting Mr. Cheeks and collect the money even though he wasn’t a member of the Original Lost Boyz. Keep in mind that this is taking money from Mr. Cheeks who has a less popular Instagram page than his verified page. Chrysler even goes as far as posting photos of Mr. Cheeks with his granddaughter to deceive fans into thinking that it is Mr. Cheeks real page.
The attempt to steal Cheeks identity by Chrysler hasn’t gone largely unnoticed by hip-hop fans. As an avid listener of “The Ryan Show” I noticed Mr. Cheeks recently addressed the situation on an episode dated 5/28/2020 saying “he wanted to do a bunch of shit no one asked him to do” describing Chrysler. Mr. Cheeks goes on further in the podcast to say “You know how a motherfucka wants to do so much but don’t have nothing to do with what they doing”. Not exactly a tell-all memoir but provides some light into the situation likely being further complicated because Freaky Kah who is the son of Original Lost Boyz member Freaky Tah is in this alleged New Lost Boyz group who Cheeks refers to as his “son” in the interview but Kah has been promoting the fake Lost Boyz Instagram page in his bio, which is understandable for an up and coming artist whose father’s solo career never took off wanting to be attached to the incredible musical legacy of Lost Boyz, which is likely one of the reasons that Mr. Cheeks hasn’t been as vocal about the situation because he possibly doesn’t want to negatively impact Freaky Kah.
As far as Chrysler his reputation at first glance would suggest that he is an upstanding business person who manages car dealerships and does music on the side. A more in depth look reveals someone who is possibly a sociopath and has left a path of destruction from stealing money from actors he claims to represent such as Marc John Jefferies, allegedly raping models at music video shoots, and attempting to rewrite the history of the Lost Boyz while using the fake profiles to steal money from Mr. Cheeks who really doesn’t need the Lost Boyz brand if we are being honest. Chrysler is a dangerous individual who has managed to avoid the detection of his deviant acts by mastering google algorithms which keep his misdeeds unknown.
Mr. Cheeks has attempted to gain back his verified Instagram page by contacting Instagram. The social media giant has failed to correct the action and with the ability for users to buy verified badges this is an unprecedented situation in the history of music and poses the question how safe is your digital identity?
