Hunters Point saw so much senseless violence which claimed the lives of most of RBL Posse. RIP Mr Cee and Hitman.

Sadly, a bunch of up and coming rappers have lost their lives over street sh*t before they really blew up. I know here in Chicago, seems like we lose a new rapper every week at this point.

There are a lot of great rappers in Chicago- and, yes, it is so sad that so many young people die way too soon.
Glad to take the time with you to pay tribute to talent gone too soon..

The ability to rhyme at a third grade level to stale beats that haven't been fresh since the 80s does not make you a poet.

Living and then dying like a thug does not make you a hero,

Yeah, because rock stars, jazz musicians, country singers, and blues singers never died of drug overdoses or had their run ins with the law.

Eyedea was one of the best, I was lucky enough to see him perform before he died of a drug overdose. "Time to wash MTV out of your ears and listen up like a good student"

Off the top freestyle/Battle rap

Or artists in general (heard Van Gogh did some crazy stuff), politicians, business men, soldiers, mechanics, soccer moms, etc.. all angels I'm sure.

Camu Tao, died of lung cancer at age 30. I think his music was way ahead of his time.

Iv never been a huge fan of rap but over the years certain ones have really stuck out to me...

Pac,Big L, Eminem, Dre, brother Ali, Tribe, Kendrick... and if course my current favorite my homies (whom I have never met) HomeBrew outta NZ.
