Listen/download: God & The Sea by Akil Nadir
We all hung out right before New Years. You cooked us an enormous meal. We ate, drank, laughed, reminisced, and caught up. You were as funny as ever. When I got the news I couldn’t believe it, man. Khalil and I talked for hours on the phone cuz we didn’t wanna sit with that silence. With the thoughts of your last moments. You were loud, boisterous, poetically crass and often hilarious. Not quiet. Never gone. God we fucking miss you.
I have damn near 20k songs on my ipod . Three days after I got the news the shit was on shuffle and this song was the 12th to come on. It sucks that you’re gone, but it’s amazing that you’re still here. Of all the songs, it was crazy that this one popped up. I’m sure it was just one of those coincidences… but I spoke to you out loud just in case.
You were a talented motherfucker Claude. You left too early. It sucks you had to go. We love you man.
Strangers on tumblr. If you like good rap shit by smart motherfuckers, take a listen.
Rest in Peace Akil Nadir, aka Cool Cee Brown, aka Emanon, aka our homie Claude.
