R.I.P. Kenneth “HeadQCourterz” Joseph Walker: Gone But Never Forgotten


Kenneth Joseph Walker was born on December 24, 1971. He grew up in the Bronx, Yonkers, and Flushing, NY. He was a loving, caring man who loved life and his family. He was brutally murdered on November 2, 2002 in the Bronx, (near Skate Key). He left behind his mom Lillian, his dad Kenny Sr., his paternal grandmother, his brother Rahmal, his sister Tiffany and step sister Gabrielle. His aunts, Bobbiann, Sibbian, Josephine. His uncles Joseph and Donald. His cousins Cyril, Keenium, Paris, April, Dana, Monica, Tawanna, Charles, Lisa, Eugene, Ron, Tyrone,and Lester, to name a few. He had many, many friends as well. He died doing exactly what he loved. He loved hip-hop from the minute he was born until the day he died. He was a rap promoter and he LOVED it. Beside his family, he loved Hip Hop more than anything in the world. He put his heart and soul into every artist he promoted. He even was at my 8th grade graduation yelling Group Home,(the group he promoted at the time) and giving out CD’s. On the day of his funeral, on November 9, 2002 at Unity Funeral Home in Harlem, friends, family, and people who loved him showed just that in a big way. The street had to be blocked off due to the amount of people in attendance. It has been so long since I heard his voice. I have his name tattooed on my back and in my heart. I will never forget him as long as I live. He was the greatest brother that I could have ever asked for. His smile could light up a room. His hug could make you forget all your troubles and make you feel safe. He was smart, loved people, and was like no one I have ever met, or ever will meet. To my Dear Kenny, I love and miss you more than anyone will ever know. A part of me died when I watched them lower your body into the ground. I miss your voice, I miss your smile, I miss your laugh, I miss your smart ass remarks. I know that God took you because you were too good for this earth. I know that you are in paradise drinking Champagne with 2Pac, Aaliyah, and Jam Master Jay. Take care of my son, grandma, and all of our loved ones we have lost before and after you up there is Heaven. And Remember Keep your head up, Eyes and Ears open, WORD AS BOND!!!! Love always and Forever ad ever and ever, Your sister, Tiffany.

    Wow…I got choked up reading this story. I was a friend of Kenny’s. He was a real nice person & a real good friend. I lost touch with him as he started getting more & more involved with the music industry. I want to send my condolences to his family. The last time I was at his house his mom offered us dinner. This is very sad. We used to work together & we hated our job so much that we both used to always go job hunting together. A lot of good memories. If anybody would like to share some good memories of Headqcourterz then holla at me.

    I met Kenny in 1986 in Yonkers. I was at work today 6 apr 2014 and just thought back to this cool guy I met named Kenny who use to dj when I was younger, I was visiting my aunt in Yonker and my aunt introduced me at age 15 or so to her friends son name surron and he took me to meet his close friend name Kenny we all clicked that summer and I remember making some good friends that I still remember to this day. I’m from Mississippi an I’m 42 now after all these years I decided to do a google search for my ole childhood friend from Yonkers to see how he was doing because I remembered how great of a dj he was being a country boy I was shocked at his skills so I just knew that he would do great things so I searched dj name Kenny from Yonkers and found a older picture of him and I’m speechless to find him deceased. So I’m just gonna say god bless u brother we kicked it back in 86 I will never forget you Brian from Mississippi

    Kenny was one of the first people I met when I moved to Flushing. He immediately took me around the neighborhood and introduced me as his boy. He had such an intimidating presence until you got to know him. I can honestly say that he was one of the realest people I’ve ever known. 35th for life!!! Word is bond!!!
