RIP Shock G💔👃🕶 From cootdog: This is entirely too sad. Greg was a pioneer in the hip-hop world and a huge inspiration of mine. I grew up madly in love with the creativity of Digital Underground. The idea of inventing characters like MC Blowfish, The Piano Man and of course the world famous multi platinum star Humpty Hump. That song still has one of the most original unique hard hitting baselines anyone has ever heard and I still bump it in nearly everyone of my DJ sets. The whole idea of Sex Packets was so creative and amazing, I literally believed it was real. Shock G sampled George Clinton and P FUNK long before Dre and basically was uncredited as the pioneer of the G Funk sound. (How George outlived Shock is a miracle, BTW).
Most know that Shock was responsible for breaking Tupac’s career and thereby gave hip hop it’s biggest star of all time. The fact that I had the opportunity to know this man, to work with him, to sleep on his couch and create great songs together, was a dream come true. His musical genius was breathtaking to watch in the studio and every chance we had to share the stage were literally the highlights of my musical journey. Whether it was me and MJ jumping up with him and Money B to rock with DU, or when he would come on stage with Mystic Roots and rock with us, every moment was epic. I remember when I graduated from Chico State, he sent a Limo and threw me the best party I could have dreamed of. The only bad vibes I ever got was when he told me I was too much of a fanboy and not enough of a friend. But he was right, i could never just be cool around him and act like I deserved to be in his circle. He was a living legend and I would always be in awe. I am crushed that we lost him so young. I wish we could have done more together and the world will miss you. We will play your music from now until eternity. Rest in Power Greg Jacobs....
