R.I.P. Jimmy Spicer

After a battle with advanced brain and lung cancer, it’s sad to hear of the passing of one of rap’s pioneers, Jimmy Spicer.
He didn’t have a huge catalogue of music but from ‘The Adventures of Super Rhymes’ to ‘I Rock Boots’, they were all classics. He helped pave the way for artists such as Dana Dane and Slick Rick with his storytelling rhymes and will be greatly missed.

Sincerest condolences to his family and anyone else that new him..
