R.I.P. Mr Magic (1956-2009)

It seems death is working overtime at the moment as another pioneer to hiphop is lost. Mr Magic first debuted way back in '83 with the first exclusive rap radio show to be aired on a major station, "Rap Attack". He was partnered in crime with Marley Marl & Fly Ty and together they helped influence a whole generation of hiphop listeners. Props to oldschoolhiphoptapes for the links to some of his radio shows and Omega B for the heads up.
