Don't really have any words. But, party time is over. It's time for all of us to take action now. Fixing the country is not a one man job.

Wow. Hip Hop literally died on stage last night at Lenny's. When I woke up this morning and saw the homie Nicole's (aka Severe) Gchat message saying "RIP JAX" I wanted to ask "who?" but didn't. You know, its kinda awkward asking people "yo, who died?" Then when I went over to Kaos' blog and saw the post he made on Jax I got reminded of exactly who it was and just thought oh damn...
Jax was one third of Atlanta's Binkis Recs (BINKIS: Before Ignorant Niggas Killed Intelligent Songs). For years Binkis was a stronghold in Atlanta's underground rap scene, even aiding in launching the career of DJ Drama pre-Gangsta Grillz. Really, more than just the "rap scene," Hip Hop period. If you were a lover of music, supporter of the culture and resident of Atlanta you'd surely seen these dudes perform and walked away remembering what you saw.
On a personal level, I can't say that I knew Jax, I only met him a couple times through the homie Craig who is in BINKIS as well. Can't say not one bad thing about dude, everytime I'd spoken with him was a pleasant experience. But that's neither here nor there, at the end of the day a dope MC, fiance and friend to many has passed.
He passed out on stage performing at Lenny's last night from a heart attack. According to Creative Loafing Jax suffered the heart attack while performing the title track from his 2007 solo album Sharper Images.
While its sad to hear, especially seeing as how he just purchased a home and was about to get married later this year, at least we can say the man died doing what he loved most...on stage at that. How many of us wish that we could die doing what we love?

And it could quite possibly happen because of idiots like this...

Ok. I'm killing two birds with one stone here.
First, I'm posting this vid the homie Sol Messiah sent over not to long ago. He's been pretty busy in the studio and documenting some of it on camera. Here's a brief drop with him and Bobbby Creekwater giving you a prelude to what's about to happen with them. If you don't know Bobby Creek used to be in a duo called Jatis around the turn of the century. They were signed to Loud which was also home to Wu-Tang, Mobb Deep and dead prez just to name a few. Alot people likened them to 'Kast at the time, but things ain't really pan out. Then Bobby Creek resurfaced on Eminem's Shady Records back around 04-05. He still hasn't dropped an album over there, so the wait is still on.
However in his time over there he managed to drop two dope ass mixtapes, Anthem To the Streets Volumes 1 & 2. Today he dropped his latest joint The BC Era. I haven't listened to it yet, but Bobby Creek hasn't let me down yet, so I feel comfortable posting it. If its wack ya'll be sure to tell me...aight?
