Loving tributes to the German-born singer have been pouring in via social media after the news of his death was made public.
NFL star Robert Griffin III tweeted, “The man who gave us ‘We Ready,’ the greatest Game Day anthem ever, has passed away at 37 years old. Rest In Peace Archie Eversole. Prayers up to his family and loved ones.”
Sports journalist Brandon Caldwell wrote, “Rip archie eversole, an energetic rapper who crafted a song and anthem which will outlive and still be wholly southern and atlanta.”
“RIP Archie Eversole— one of his greatest hits would be this hood class titled ‘We Ready,’” another wrote, alongside prayer emojis.
One tribute honored the popular track. “This song, ‘We Ready,’ helped me push through my re-injured ACL back in high school in 02. I still use this song when I work out, or right before I get out the car at the gym. A classic banger that will never fail to get people pumped, myself included. RIP Archie Eversole.”
“What happened to Archie Eversole is an incredible tragedy. It’s a huge loss for the city and for its soccer culture,” another added.
Rest In Peace Archie.
