In case it goes down the memory hole in the midst of all the tributes

Sleep in peace to Clarence Fountain, a founding member of Blind Boys Of Alabama, who passed away at the age of 88. Although this is not an official BBOA song, i always thought they did a wonderful job backing Ban Harper on this. Plus, this song gives me chills because of this Lost episode

Sleep in peace, Craig Mack…

Celebrating Prodigy’s(RIP) music tonight…

Reblog from March 2014, from the brother Ethex..

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…

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.

Rest in peace Muhammad Ali, dead at the age of 74. I leave you with one of the most informative programs i used to watch on early Sunday afternoons, Like It Is W/ Gil Noble(RIP), who did a piece on the great Ali back in 1980…

In tribute to all the lovely hard-working mothers out there, here is a OG version of the 2Pac classic joint…

And yet another great leaves us far too early. I’m pretty sure everyone knows his classic discography, but Prince was also a very aware/conscious individual. Check out this clip of him on the Tavis Smiley Show discussing chemtrails and his views on Amerikkka…

.. I’ll leave you with this ‘Purple Rain’ guitar solo:

“you on point, Phife?
..All the time, Tip”

“Noooooo!!” That was my first thought as i heard the news today about Phife Dawg’s passing. I was actually watching the Democracy Now program and as usual they play a record as they go on break/intermission. On this break though, they started playing Phife’s verse on Buggin’ Out and i automatically just start bobbin’ my head like “Yeaaa, that’s my shit right there” lol. But as the reporter fades out the music to come back from the break, i hear the words that pretty much crushed my whole morning. “Phife Dawg has passed away early this morning”. Wow. Ain’t no words to say but that Tribe’s music was pretty much my childhood’s DNA and now one part of that is gone. Gone, but never forgotten. Rest in paradise, Phife.
