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.
This track is for you man. I know you will be smiling when I pull this one out haha!!!
