Crazy, less than 24 hours ago, Ricky Harris was on TV One’s A Royal Family Christmas movie marathon. There, those who watched likely reflected on Ricky Harris’ overlooked legacy in the game. Long before gaining fame, Ricky Harris made music video history.

When Snoop Dogg was still emerging in the game, Ricky Harris played the dad in Snoop’s “Gin & Juice” music video. Later, he would gain fame on “Moesha” playing JW, the boyfriend of Andell (R.I.P. Yvette Wilson), before playing Malvo on “Everybody Hates Chris.” Now, he is dead.

Just hours ago, Billy Washington took to Twitter to reveal Ricky Harris died. The cause of death is currently unknown. However, social media is now already mourning his loss.
