Rest in Peace

Wow, its been a tough couple weeks here. Last week Jay Dilla aka Jay Dee aka the producer behind A Tribe Called Quest, Common, Pharcyde and more passed away. Go check out Stones Throw and pick up his new album Donuts released on his 32nd birthday just days before he passed. Hip hop has lost a true pioneer that has truly changed the game.

Then word came in on Friday that Harold Hunter, an influential skateboarder for Zoo York, Kids star and NYC favorite passed away. Check out Splay as they have setup a tribute page.

Damn, lets hope the rest of 2006 has better things in store. Rest in peace.

I think aNYthing summed it up best here:
"Harold Hunter didn’t have a problem, we all had a problem. Harold is telling us to stop bullshitting and come correct. We have to take care of each other, we have to stand up and take responsibility for each other. None of us are alone here, a loss of one of us is a loss for all of us. I will tell you like I tell myself, I love you, I am ready to stand up for you and do whats right for life."
