Brandon was also preceded in death by his mother’s parents Marshall (Margaret Mabson) Edwards and his fathers parents James(Laura)Walker. Brandon will be missed everyday by his oldest brother Anthony Walker and will be reuniting with his heavenly brother Maurice Walker. He will be deeply missed by his nieces Anaiya Tucker, Rihana Walker, Harmonii Walker, nephew Maurice Walker Jr and host of Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and his South side family Brandon was a child who always had big dreams. He grew up with the love of playing little league football and basketball with his childhood friends. Brandon was defiant on and off the court and the biggest man on the basketball team and never wanted to pass the ball, he thought of himself as a leader. He later attended Tates Creek High school and spent most of his young adult life growing up on the East Side of Lexington. Unfortunately as the years went on Brandon found himself lost within the streets which landed time away from his family. Through the experience of being incarcerated he found the love of music which inspired him to pursue his career within the music industry. During his recovery program he had time to reflect back on what was important. He thought about how inspiring his father was to others, always giving and being supportive to someone else’s needs. He saw how the minds and hearts of individuals transformed through speaking to them and educating them about his trials and tribulations. With the vision to lead he knew his actions today could affect his life and others in the future. He knew then it was time to better his life. Brandon completed the program successfully and came home with a clear mind. He realized there was more to life than just the streets. As he would say, “the streets dont love you”. Which is why he started and became CEO of his brand called Struggle Team. Brandon has always felt in his heart that the community should always stand together in unity. The Struggle Team stood for greatness, effectiveness, how to make something from nothing, and giving back in any way to help one another. Brandon stayed in the limelight promoting his views on his community but also made a strong case for supporting the creative aspirations of young, urban, black men, who are often growing up in the shadow of pure darkness. Brandon affected so many people in his lifetime. Although only 37 at the time of his death, he was a man of courage, he had integrity, and stood strong behind his message Love is Love. He went above and beyond for his community and was deeply devoted to being a leader and mentor for the youth. Brandon cared about people in the purest way, within the last year of his death, Brandon was all about loving his family, friends and his significant other Nia Hawkins, who he enjoyed spending time with. Brandon found the love of music where he invested time into himself and inspired countless other, rising rapper’s and inner-city kids to do well. He stayed promoting his brand with the help of his Struggle Team close friends. Brandon is known for helping his community, feeding the homeless and motivating others to stand up to make a difference. His iconic work-ethic helped many others dream bigger and hustle harder. He built one empire to go on to try building another. To Brandon he achieved his American Dream, and then some. He stated, “when I die I will die a legend”. Not only was he concerned about the legacy he will leave, but he honors the legacy he has received and the traditions of his mother Deloris who he loved dearly. Big B’s memory will forever live on in others who loved and supported him.
