Bummed to hear this guy passed. Pretty much the father of the Roots, he was their manager, producer, A&R, engineer, etc etc since their inception (when Questo and Thought were just teens). Plus he contributed to their liner notes, lent his voice to the albums at times, and most recently provided interludes throughout Questlove’s book. I had no idea he was sick. RIP man, and thanks for bringing such a legendary group to the forefront.
