Shock G of Digital Underground passed away on Friday at the age of 57. He was a larger-than-life icon who brought us the character of Humpty Hump, popularized P-funk, brought humour and originality to hip-hop, introduced us to 2Pac, and produced some amazing records and albums.
He was brilliant and will truly be missed. I hope he knew how inspirational and influential he was for hip-hop and music in general, but I’m not sure he did.
I hate that I had to do tribute shows three weeks in a row. This hurts.
This one is for you, Shock G!
