How can you make any sense of a life ending? Richard Nichols, who managed the Roots since the beginning, since before the beginning, passed away on July 17, 2014 after a long battle with leukemia (CMML). Rich was 55... Rich was loved, is loved, will always be loved. He will live on in me, in Black Thought, in the rest of the Roots, and in every artist and project he touched. Recently, Rich was asked if he felt less creative after two decades in hip-hop. “I feel even more creative, honestly,” he said. “Creativity hasn’t ever been the problem, because I’m still trying to work on the idea.” We will continue to carry forward his model and his creativity, to work on the idea, for better or worse. It may be better and it may be worse, but we’ll keep things moving. To say that there will never be anyone like him is an understatement. He is what he was: the only one. - @questlove.

・・・ #TheListening the 2002 debut by #LittleBrother is for hip hop what the self titled #NewYorkDolls 73 debut was for punk culture. What 1974’s #InspirationInformation by #ShuggieOtis was for abstract funk. What @GaryNuman’s 81 “Dance” album was for @Prince’s Minniapolis creative assault & perhaps the entire #Sylvers MGM/Pride catelogue was for bubblegum soul. It provided context and a vision for the future very quietly. When history is written, many a revisionist will bestow #CollegeDropout w accolades and props on introducing the world to a 3 dimensional flesh and blood view of modern black struggle. Something hip hop avoided its first 2 decades. Truth is North Carolina’s Little Brother was Ye’s blueprint long before he had a deal. Drake has gone on record to sing Little Brother’s praises in how instrumental their line blurring of singing and mcing was for him. This album pioneered SoundCloud producers & blog mcs. I laughed so hard when @9thwonder told me he used something called #FruityLoops & garage band to record this entire album. “Fruit What!!!??”—-I’m not laughing no more. Until the @westsidegunn movement (we can add @freddiegibbs @anderson._paak & @rocmarci too) LB was truly the last hip hop movement I cared about AS A FAN w/o dissecting & listening as a peer. Peep the documentary on @okayplayer tomorrow on the making of a revolution that you don’t even know about. @questlove #littlebrother #music #hiphop #phontigallo
