When I date back I recall a man off the family tree
It’s not certain that the man appearing as CL’s “Papa Doc” in the video is, in fact, the real “Papa Doc” and, thus, not yet dead but neither is there any indication that he is dead. There is, however, not only nothing to suggest that Papa Doc was an uncle but much to indicate that “Papa Doc” is or was CL’s grandfather.
