Brother Ethex with a few powerful words on the painful disease Sickle-Cell Anemia (Peace to Prodigy and ALL survivors). I’ve posted another article by Ethex (thru MWIV) in which he gave some strong views on Hip-Hop and just life basically, so check that out. I’m gonna try and see if i can get a full interview with him sometime soon because i feel he has a lot on his mind that i feel should be shared with the world. Anyway here’s Brother Ethex and his thoughts…

I hope you feel the lyrics
W I type 2words a minute
so if (cliches aside) one
individual is moved by
A Relatively Silent Killer
That wreaks havoc (no pun,if u get ull get.) Upon
The individual, the family, the medical profession.
Basicly your cells take
on the form of a Sickle. Anyone that knows…

R.I.P. Prodigy

Received the news earlier today about Prodigy’s passing and it hit me like a ton of bricks. I grew up on the M-O-B-B- music, from Juvenile Hell all the way to Prodigy’s solo career. I’m pretty sure the first time i heard Mobb Deep was on Stretch & Bob’s show, i could be wrong. But i do know for a fact, Hold Down The Fort was the first time i heard from them and was the first taste {} of what was to come from P and Hav. Rest easy, Prodigy…

Rest In Peace, George Michael…

WOW. No words, except the big middle finger to 2016…

Singer George Michael had died, according to multiple reports. He was 53.

“It is with great sadness that we can confirm our beloved son, brother and friend George passed away peacefully at home over the Christmas period,” Michael’s publicist said in a statement to Sky News and BBC News.

“The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult and emotional time. There will be no further comment at this stage.”

Thames Valley Police said South Central Ambulance Service attended a property in Goring in Oxfordshire at 13:42 GMT, according to the BBC. Authorities say there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death, according to the BBC.

Michael, who was born Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, launched his music career in the 1980s as a band member of Wham!. In 1987, he released his debut solo album, Faith, which catapulted him into success.

During his almost four-decades of fame, the singer sold 100 million albums worldwide.
