League of Extraordinary Gz. I was introduced to the Gz by Bavu Blakes, one of my favorite emcees, and a champion of Texas hip hop (even since he's moved to Cali...). This weekend, Bavu informed me that Tay Berry passed away on Friday. I never met him or even saw him perform live, but I definitely enjoyed his music. It's funny... when I hear of a musician or performer's death, the first thing I think of is their work. In Berry's case, my mind went straight to his chest-beating track Follow My Lead, my favorite song off the League's first Concealed Weapons mixtape. I wish I could say that I knew him, or even that I was a big supporter of his work, but I can't. But to those that can, I offer my condolences. Click here to learn more about Berry (the way I did) from Bavu's blog.
