I still miss you and strive to be somewhat like you. Everyday. You were literally too amazing for this Earth, even when you were here.
I love you. And this still sucks a*s.
It’s selfish to ask… but please. Come back to us soon. We need people like you. We will always miss you.

Gil Scott Heron released a Hell of an album called "I'm New Here." You obviously need this in your life right now.

Rest Peacefully.

This man is one of the main reasons why Hip Hop exists in the form that it does. Spoken Word poetry is the basis for all Hip Hop, and men like him and The Last Poets are the reasons why you even know what rap music is.

Along with a powerful appearance on Kanye’s “Who Will Survive in America,” he had a wonderful album I picked up last year called “I’m New Here” (click here for more) as if to remind us that he hadn’t left… as if he was never going to leave us… despite his health. After releasing “We’re New Here” with Jamie XX(click here for more), he hopped on that Kanye track, then fell back.

I will miss you. And I’m glad your free from all of this.

Phoenix’s Tiny Desk Concert. NPR Wins Again.

Yay Live Musics.

So my boy Marty comes through with the epic win and points out that someone out there in this great wide world has been consistently uploading NPR’s “Tiny Desk” Concert Series to YouTube. Including the awesome performance from my longtime faves, Phoenix. Continuing the awesome mini-concerts that have made “Tiny Desk” performances semi-famous, the band does a solid 4 song, 12 minute set that will keep you entertained. You can watch and download the performance from NPR here. Then, when you’re done with that, you can look up the rest of the Concert Series here.

Enjoy.
