One Of My Most Famous Friends Died (And - Like Fame - Sooner Than Expected)

Greg Jacobs was a good one: I met him in the late '80s, when I was in The Beatnigs and he was hustling his Underwater Rimes 12-inch. He'd never seen anything like us. But then, later, he showed us how it was really done, when the world got to "doing the Humpty-Hump" with him, and then Tupac blew up through Gregg's band, Digital Underground. A head-spinning level of success. He still came to my shows after all that. Anonymously, just to show encouragement and be a friend. Like I said: Greg was a good one.

R.I.P., Shock-G. You're already missed.
