It’s difficult to know what kind of tribute, which words to use when we suffer loses on this scale. It’s very overwhelming but also heartwarming to see through the limited lens of social media that these people will not be forgotten, the impact they made is enormous and the love the people have for them is tangible.
It’s a lot to write something about every individual listed here, but I want to say that many of them affected my life and IBMCs in profound ways, whether through friendships, musical collaborations, or simply artists who are admired for their amazing contributions to Hip Hop.
RIP to everyone we lost in 2020
