(2007: Khalifah & I)

I met him back in middle school and he’s still one of the funniest dudes I ever knew. He was a talented graphic designer and gifted film director. I was so excited for this guy and what the future may hold for him. Crazy he posted this on his blog the day prior:

Rare Impression

Montgomery County police were investigating a crash Wednesday night in Silver Spring that killed Khalifah Muhammad, 18, and his brother Idris, 20, the sons of a District advisory neighborhood commissioner.
A dark blue Nissan Sentra driven by Idris Muhammad veered off the southbound lane of Layhill Road and hit a utility pole about 10:30 p.m., police said.

Both men, the sons of Ward 8 ANC Commissioner Anthony Muhammad, were wearing seat belts, officials said. Two women in the back seat were not wearing seat belts, but they did not suffer severe injuries, officials said.

Khalifah Muhammad, a rising sophomore English major at Morehouse College in Atlanta, was recently named the school’s freshman of the year. His friends were having a difficult time Thursday believing that he was gone.
