Earlier this year, The Roots shared a video compiling some of the greatest verses from the band’s co-founder Malik B, who died on July 29 aged 47.
The video collates clips from the music videos for ‘Distortion To Static’, ‘Clones’, and ‘Proceed’ that showcase the rapper at his lyrical best.
The YouTube tribute is captioned: “It is with heavy hearts and tearful eyes that we regretfully inform you of the passing of our beloved brother and long time Roots member Malik Abdul Basit.
“May he be remembered for his devotion to Islam, his loving brotherhood and his innovation as one of the most gifted MCs of all time.”
