You know, no more ridiculous R.I.P. threads... Rosa Parks, yes. Richard Pryor, ok. Coretta Scott King... I don't even remember there being one for her.
But if we're going to mourn the loss of some Kanye West goon, then you can expect an RIP thread from me for every Obit I read in Sunday's paper.
I didn't realize there was a Coppermine name recognition test for RIP threads...
I also like how you have no clue who this guy is, but can still call him a goon.
Oh, Wharf-man, It's all good... I'm barely seriously and to be honest, it's actually far more sad to see someone in the hip hop industry die of natural causes rather than a gunshot wound (or wounds).
I see now that he was clearly an influential figure among the hip-hop community and if you'll accept, i'd like to offer my apologies for being so apathetic on the matter.
It's sad when anyone dies, but it's Saturday night, and I'll be Wanging Chung all night long regardless... and I'll even tip my glass and offer a malt liquor (or, more specifically, an India Pale Ale) gift to the man, the myth, the legend... Jay Dee.
Question, is Jay Dee also Jaylib and J Dilla? It's too bad he passed before he could try out J-Funk or J. Duffy.
