R.I.P – Megatron: Radio/TV Personality and Friend


I never imagined writing a post like this, but I knew I needed to personally express my respect and condolences to Megatron and his family. He was truly a brother and mentor to me, as an upcoming personality, and he can never be replaced. In my eyes, there is never a good reason for violence as there will always be someone on the other side who will sadly have to bear that burden and pain.

God bless his family, friends, co-workers and every person he touched with his smile, advice, good will and charity. We will miss you.

Here is an excerpt of the report from the NY Daily News:

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Family and friends are coping with the death of DJ Megatron, aka Corey McGriff, who died early this morning after being shot in the torso in Stapleton.

“I just don’t understand how could anyone want to do this,” said his friend and business associate Mex Guerrera,according to a report from thesource.com. “He didn’t have beef with anyone, who would want to hurt him.”

“He was a good person,” Keith Robinson, who identified himself as Megatron’s father-in-law, told the Daily News. “Everyone’s just shocked.”

McGriff, 32, was shot at about 2 a.m. in front of 120 Osgood Ave., not far from his home.

Police responded and discovered him with a gunshot wound to his torso. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
