Tiny ‘Deebo’ Lester Came To Yakima
He has been on the small screen and the big screen. From an episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Being President on The Fifth Element. He is most known for being 'Deebo' on the movies Friday and Next Friday. Tiny 'Deebo' Lister came to Yakima for a meet and greet. On Saturday (Aug. 22nd), Hosted by Cemetery Tim.
Cemetery Tim, known for creating headstones for families locally here in the Yakima Valley and across the county. He made the new headstone for iconic rapper Eazy-E. Also for Nate Dogg and Left Eye of TLC.
I'm not sure how it happened. But from following both of these guys on social media. I saw that 'Tiny' Lister became a spokesperson for Cemetery Tim.
For a few hours, fans lined up at Cemetery Tim's business. Which is located in Yakima. Tiny was in his 'Deebo' character. Joking around with fans. Especially if they were wearing a chain necklace. He even told a few stories. Former 107.3 KFFM personality DJ Nahum Ray provided music.
I stood in line with everyone else. Cemetery Tim occasionally rode a bike that was raffled off later that afternoon. Fans were required to wear a mask. Got a temperature check before entering where 'Tiny' Lister was having fun with fans. To me, it was an exciting experience getting to meet 'Deebo'.
He had everyone sanitize their hands. Fans got to take pictures, video, or both. Since he is the spokesperson for Cemetery Tim. He mentioned a special discount if you mention 'Deebo' sent you. When I was up to meet him. He even joked around with me. He is a cool guy. Check out the video on the 107.3 KFFM Instagram page, don't forget to click the follow button.
