The fact that hip hop as a culture is losing so many icons that serve as the foundation so frequently is alarming. The news of Mr. Magic's passing truly surprised me. Maybe its because we look at many of the artists and DJ's who have shaped the culture as "super-hero-esque"; untouchable elements that will be here forever. We know that they will live on through their music and contributions, long after their physical lives have ended, but that doesn't make their passing any easier to take.

I hope that everyone takes the time to appreciate those who have paved the way. Without them, many of us would have no path to walk.
