Man this hurts. I keep thinking about how Prodigy may have kissed his wife and kids before leaving for work, never to come home again. I have a deep love for family and my condolences go out to the Johnson family. May Jehovah God comfort you, Rev. 21:3-4. I never got to see Mobb Deep live in concert but I've rocked all of their records at the jams. I remember being the first one in Phoenix with the "Shook Ones" 45 (pictured below). Thank You Prodigy!
"Y.B.E."-My favorite Prodigy song.
In 1986 I bought my first record from a vinyl shop in Milwaukee called Rent-A-Record that was on Fond Du Lac & Capitol. That record was the self titled first release from U.T.F.O. My favorite song was "Leader Of The Pack" and the video was in heavy rotation on B.E.T. Sadly,I never got a chance to see them perform live or meet the Educated Rapper. Nontheless,I still own all of their albums & singles and am deeply saddened by this loss. Thank You EMD!
Generation Cool is a mix of pop culture, hip-hop culture, and sports culture. Of course it was the toys and hip-hop that drew me in. This place is a goldmine for collectors and fans of vintage street wear. I am not easily impressed by your average dime-a-dozen pop-up shops, but trust me, this place is a force to be reckoned with. Need some rare sneakers? What about a vintage Raiders Started jacket? Been looking for that 6 Million Dollar Man action figure or maybe that rare Public Enemy concert tee? How about a leather Gucci hat and matching fat gold chain?... NO PROBLEM. Generation Cool reminds me of those classic hip-hop shops of the 80' & 90's. This spot is a must to visit if you are in the Tucson area. You can thank me later.
