Big T, notable for his hook on Lil' Troy's hit "Wanna Be a Baller," was laid to rest in southwest Houston.

Born Terence Prejean, Big T released a number of his own albums, including "Power Move" and "Million Dollar Hooks" in 2000 and 2001, respectively.

His wife, Melanie Prejean, told ABC13 that he used his last breath to save her and their son's lives.
