    R.I.P MR MAGIC PIONEER OF HIP HOP RADIO

    YN,

    I worked with Magic, Cee, and Fly Ty for 3 years down the street board Operating the Classic Showcase . He and Fly Ty wanted to run their own board so I just sat there got paid and learned the history that’s got me the job I have today. Learned his history, our history.

    Even as I watched his struggles, I never lost respect for him. He still kept that smile in the mist of his struggles.

    This is the exact reason why we have to honor and revere our legends and those who pave the way for us while they’re here like other genres of music because life is so short.

    This is the reason I’m so honored to work with legends like Grand Master Flash, DJ Premier, Red Alert, Tony Touch, and other legends here at Sirius XM.

    They are going to have to pardon me if the soul brother handshakes get a little tighter, its only appreciation and gratitude.

    R.I.P. Magic

    I worked with Magic, and Fly Ty back in 200/ 2001…on the Classic Showcase. It was the best experience thus far. Magic was managing as I was trying to oursue a music career. He was my biggest fan and I was his! I had so much respect for him. He was the coolest and I am glad I had the pleasure to be in his life. I loved him and he loved hip hop! I will miss him as I already do…my tears are still falling. My heart goes out to his family! Much Love!
    Sgt. Hawkins…contact me via myspace…..Reginald! I havent seen you in years!

    Love, Kdabra

    My bad ya’ll, Nas’s referrence was from “Halftime” not “One Time 4 Ya Mind”, I might’ve been listening to one and thinking about the other.
