    I think El-P put a nice final touch on the tweetbutes when he said (and I hope this html works):

  2. RT @SKRILLEX: i think i’ll go skating in barcelona tonight :)

  3. And now, Senator Chuck Schumer (D) of New York. Take it away, Senator:

  4. we need to get RubberJohnny in here.

  5. It kinda pissed me off today that, as an avid rap fan and rap follower on twitter, only a small portion of rappers I follow tweeted about this. I’ll wait until tomorrow because I know some artists don’t tweet sporadically (which I respect), but for those who do, I’ll lose respect if I don’t see a gesture towards MCA. I agree with Mike_ that El-P’s was the best message, but I really liked what Earl Sweatshirt said because he’s not one to give a fuck. That was refreshing. RIP MCA

  6. Still remember discovering them from “Intergalactic” on the radio and then later not being able to shut up about how brilliant Paul’s Boutique is. RIP MCA.

  7. TUPAC: Looking forward to our summer tour
