R.I.P. Chilly B of Newcleus

I don't intent to resume posting on a regular basis, but I just received these sad and tragic news as of today ... via Cozmo D:
"Chilly B Passes Away At Age 47

Newcleus co-founder, writer, rapper, singer, keyboardist and bass player Chilly B passed away today due to complications from a massive stroke that he suffered days ago. The stroke had left him brain dead and in a coma. Today the decision was made to remove him from life support and he passed on not long after.

He is survived by his wife Valerie and his sons Justin, Jason, Joshua and Isaiah."

Newcleus are probably my favorite hip hop group ... they were the funkiest of them all. And I guess there's noone of you reading this who doesn't remember Chilly B's sonorous rapping voice from classics like Jam on it and Computer Age.

"Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Chilly B ..."

He will be missed ... by friends and family, and by the countless people all over the world who he touched with the exceptional music he created. R.I.P.
