A good friend of mine died yesterday. While most of you are used to me posting free record rips, most of you don't really know who I am or probably don't care. This is all good. Pretty much something you have to expect when you are in that position. This man was a huge influence on me and my music. He taught me about hip hop and led me to many artists such as Capone & Noreaga, Alkoholiks, etc. He will truly be missed. Sometimes when we get caught up on the things we think are important, we forget the blessing of life and family. My weakness is obviously records. But until a close one dies, life smacks you in the face and you realize what it is all about. Unfortunately, that only lasts for a short time. Then it's back to square 1. It's kind of crazy when a loved one passes, you almost wish you knew...and wish you could have gone back in time to warn them. Right? Anyone ever felt like that? My heart and soul goes out to you Cortez, and your family and loved ones. You were truly a genuine dude, and you will be missed by many. Rest in Power.

  2. I hope Shun Ramey burns in hell !!! I'm so sick of people trying to take other people's shit . Tez wasn't hurting anybody . He was just trying to get his life together and save some money to to start something anything to get out of what he was doing to get by.I will miss him I have known him for 20 years . The last text he sent me was him talking shit about some video game we played .

  4. Mike, I too am sorry to hear about your loss. I hope you are able to put your new perspective on the value of life to good use. You are right, the buzz does fade, but hopefully you will retain what you have learned. Life is for the living. Enjoy every moment and cherish others. Unfortunately, all of this that we know as our world is just temporary. That is what makes everything so precious. Take care, JohnnyUSA

  9. While I cannot comment on the death of your friend except to say the deep and raw pain you are experiencing right now does eventually transform itself into something positive...

    ...what I can comment on is the fact that you are a lot more than just a guy who rips and posts free records in my mind...I have felt so much joy on discovering all these amazing records so you are clearly not an asshole; undertaking such a labour of often thankless love (assholes would not bother or rather do it for a couple of months then sulk that the world is not paying attention!). You are always really helpful in the comments and have shared some really rare material so while I no nothing about you, I do know you are one of the good guys.

    We are in this world but not of it....

  12. Were do I start, This was one of the realiest niggas I know. Moving to Nashville he is the only homie I had and I must say he was like a brother. I just talk to him the day before and taking over the world was the mission, I do not know about the world but success was promise with him. I know it is alot of people who took his friendship lightly but we will see how much we depended on him. To his family I am truly sorry for this lost, but please know we (Nashville) are hurting as well and TEZ will live on I promise. Lavishboy. Entertainment out of Louisville, Ky will miss u Tez we had so many plans homie until I see u in the sky homie I will let the world know about U, REST IN POWER BABY BOY
