Dot A Rock Passes Away

Share This Post

Darryl Mason, aka Dot a Rock of the Fantastic Romantic 5, passed away this week.

The group was instrumental in the early development of hip hop as DJ’s added MC crews to help rock the party.  The group appeared alongside their counterparts the Cold Crush Brothers to fill out the roster of performers in the seminal film Wild Style.

It seems like lately I’ve been posting too many of these notices…

Here are some tweets about the news from around the hip hop community.
