Not discounting this but I have literally never heard of him until right now.
Honestly same. I'm not even slightly informed on who people in the music industry are, though. I work with a guy who's in some kind of band that sings the kind of music where you swallow the mic and make a lot of guttural sounds and he asked me what kind of music I was into. I was like "mostly just the cheesiest pop garbage available." He was like "Yeah, no." and stopped talking about music with me.

He's pretty far from mainstream, so it's not super surprising, but he was as big as they come in the underground/alternative hip hop scene. I'd recommend checking his work out if you're at all into rap, or want to hear Methylenedioxymethamphetamine worked into a bar.

I put him even a little above Immortal Technique in the underground scene. As was said above, absolute legend.

Larry King. Dude had more lives than he did wives.

Howard Stern was just talking about him yesterday and I was thinking the same thing. I knew he had covid a few weeks ago and was thinking he was gonna beat it. That said, not sure how he died for sure yet.

The arc of King's COVID illness seems to match a fairly frequent pattern with older folks. People get deathly ill, seem to make a recovery and then it boomerangs back on them and then they die.

A business acquaintance of mine died of COVID last weekend (I think she was about 60 and had asthma) - she was sick for about a month, was hospitalized and got better. She was actually released from the hospital, then she relapsed and died a few days later.

That's pretty much what happened to my mom.
