It could be argued that, during the brief span of his entertainment career during the late 1950’s, Franklin Joseph Lymon – better known as the “late” “Frankie Lymon” – became the American music industry’s first popular performer to garner what came to be termed crossover demographic appeal.
During the era of the late 1950’s, Lymon and his doo-wop vocal group the Teenagers enjoyed a meteoric rise to the heights of stardom.
But alas, after a string of hits, including what came to be known as the group’s signature song, “Why Do Fools Fall in Love”, both Lymon and the Teenagers duration in the limelight was remarkably short lived.
Though, official biographies inform, “Frankie Lymon” (Lie-Man/masonic play-on-words) attempted to forge a comeback before his tragic “death” from a heroin overdose in 1968 at the age of 25 on February 27 (37’s or 777, Alistair Crowley’s intelligence joker code), he would never again attain the heights of popularity he once enjoyed.
Or did he indeed?
Additionally, both the “official” and alleged DOB and DOD listed for “Frankie Lymon” are mirrored with the number of 33 (highest degree Scottish Rite Freemasonry).
Stunningly, not only did “Frankie Lymon” endure to once again reach the heights of stardom while operating under several famous pseudonyms, he was modified into a well-known Hollywood actor – observed in the succession of images displayed above – who was also educated at Fordham University, a prestigious institution of higher learning established by the Jesuit order.
As well, ironically, “Frankie Lymon” (AKA Hollywood actor Denzel Washington) was also modified into a fabricated character scheme named “Freeway Rick Ross” who became known as one of Los Angeles’s most notorious narcotics traffickers.
Franklin Joseph Lymon (AKA Hollywood actor Denzel Washington) was also modified into the “artist” known as Jean-Michael Basquiat who was also associated with Andy Warhol (AKA former president John F. Kennedy/Hollywood actor Dennis Hopper, rock singer Roger Daltry).
Still later, “Frankie Lymon” (AKA Denzel Washington/”Freeway” Rick Ross, Jean-Michael Bisquiat) was modified into a famous music industry figure, a rapper – “Jay-Z”/Sean Carter – who, according to official biographies, began his life in the streets of New York as – wait for it folks – a drug dealer.
