Sad news for 80s and 90s babies. Yesterday, October 12, 2016 Thomas Mikal Ford passed away at 52 years old.
Most of us know him as “Tommy” from Martin, the milk-dud head man that ain’t have no job, man! lol But some of us may recognize him from Big Sean’s Ode to Martin in his music video for the song ‘Play No Games’.
While researching to make a video about his passing I saw on his social media that Tommy had used the theme of ‘not having a job’ to inspire young men and teach them how to dress for work and inspire them to always work harder. He was recently honored by the National Congress of Black Women and awarded the “Good Brother” award. And he was indeed a good brother.
Thanks for the laughs Tommy. From Martin, to Living Single, to NY Undercover, you were a true talent and a good brother.
