With heavy hearts we gather today to memorialize a truly great MC, Gift of Gab of Blackalicious. We are massive fans of this tongue-twisting and insightful rapper, and we are deeply sorry for his recent passing. We are here to remember Timothy Parker’s artistry, charisma, and immense skill as a lyricist and to pay tribute by sharing some memories of his presence. His music had an immense impact on all of us and we will continue to try and help spread the word about his larger-than-life mic presence well into the future. DBRP is brought to you by Stony Island Audio podcast network.
