I can’t believe it’s already been 14 years since Pac passed away. This song touches me at the very bottom of my soul, and no matter how much I hear it, I can still feel the energy I felt when I first heard it a decade ago.

Interestingly, I just found out that J Dilla has an uncredited production role in this one. The video of course, is ahead of its time.

RIP Pac.

J Dilla’s birthday rave

So for the first time in the past couple of years I was actually in London for the late great J Dilla’s birthday ruckus. Managed to pick up a ticket from a mate, so headed down with my peeps (although it turns out this ticket was actually for some Dilla rave in BRIGHTON, so I had to buy a new ticket at the door lol!).

Vibe was nice, music was great (of course) with everyone paying their respects/celebrating the life of one of the great musicians of our time. It’s always a shame when someone passes before their time, but he has no doubt left a great legacy and permanent impression on what embodies Hip Hop.

Shout out to my boys Skillet and Kidkanevil who both rocked the stage hard. Of course Shortee Blitz, Sarah Love and Spin Doctor made the night very special too.
