It's been an emotional day for the people Flabba has left behind.

Hundreds of people have filled Baseline in Newtown to pay tribute and celebrate the rapper's life.

After a series of moving tributes to Flabba, his Skwatta Kamp family took to the stage. As they made their way to the stage to share some of their fondest memories of Flabba with mourners the crowd erupted in song.

The band recalled how they each met Flabba and shared funny memories they have with him. Skwatta Kamp's manager Peter Linch told the crowd that the group wouldn't be what it is without Flabba. 

"Flabba came up with the name of the group Skwatta Kamp, he was the inspiration," Peter added. 

Fellow group member Shugasmakx says that Flabba was one of the greatest musicians. "With his first album he won a SAMA award." 

He added that Flabba loved Alexandra and was proud of his roots.

Slikour told fans that Flabba lived for his kids and spoke a lot about them over the past three weeks. "We lost a soldier. Flabba never needed the industry, the industry needed him," he said.

Adding, "His rhymes were unique. There will never be another Flabba. There is only one Flabba and he's gone." 

Slikour explained that Flabba only wanted to make sure his family were well taken care of.
