RIP to Pumpkinhead! He passed away yesterday, I've heard word that it was complications during surgery. So it's still unknown.

I've listened to his music ever since his Babygrand days and he was establishing a reputation amongst the battle rap domain. Many artists such as Pharoahe Monch, Talib Kweli, Chip Fu, Soul Khan have described him as a cool, humble dude who took passion to his craft. PH you will be missed.

    Im not one of those people thats gonna front like Pumpkin head was one of my favorite rappers, but i will say the love he had for the art is unmatched. Ive always checked for his stuff and orange moon over brooklyn got heavy rotation when it dropped. "Rock on" to me is a top 50 track. The first few lines is the essence of what underground hip hop is. R.I.P

    "Welcome aboard the Underground Railroad, I'm your captain
    I'm gonna explain the reason why I keep on rappin
    Why I keep on movin, doin shows in Manhattan
    Knowin in my heart, that I'll probably never go platinum
    See it's for the love, music is in my protoplasm"
