    This is so sad, I met him years ago at the Smokin’ Grooves tour. I used to love the music that he helped pioneer, jazz mixed with hip-hop…the early 90’s were the ish. I really hope he pulls through…

  • Alrighty Then... (can never go to another male revue in LIFE!)

    Definitely a legend… I hope he recovers…

    @Glok

    You have no idea how much I miss those times. The music was so much deeper and had so much more meaning. All those jazz hip-hop artists got support from me. Digable Planets, Tribe Called Quest, Brand New Heavies, Gang Starr, I could keep going….just reminiscing….
