West Coast Hip-Hop has taken a sudden blow with the passing of Above the Law member KMG, born Kevin Michael Gulley, yesterday morning. It’s been confirmed by long time friend and former Ruthless Records artist Kokane via Twitter but the cause of death has yet to identified. What’s really messed up is the fact that yesterday, just out of the blue, my girlfriend and I were watching and rapping along to the Black Superman music video. Our condolences go out to the Gulley family and friends and I believe Kokane put it best when he tweeted, “KMG —> Kevin Gulley was truly 1 of the Greats! RiP to my brotha , my Friend , my heart!!! I will miss him! I love U kev, n JESUS name ”

Canada Day/4th of July:
I wanted to stall this for a bit so I can make one post with the 4th of July. Saving the best for last, this song is the reason why I had to buy the album the first day it got released! It had a catchy hook and a dope ass beat with some crazy lyrics thrown in it just the way Hip-Hop music was back in the glory days. I hope you added Point Blank to your favorite Hip-Hop group list or even gave them a chance with these blog entries. So I guess there’s nothing more left to say than happy Canada Day and have a blessed 4th of July.
P.S. from the video, only Jackal and Kidd appear on the CD cut so I would also suggest checking out the audio version of this song because its different, mixed better and, in my opinion, the far superior version. If only they have a version where they combine the audio with the video as one big mega-mix but mixed like the audio version, that’ll be DOPE!
