On September 17, 2014, the hip-hop community lost one of its most enthusiastic, devoted soldiers, Earl Patrick McNease. Known to all of us as Praverb, he was a rapper, DIY marketing expert, blogger, but more importantly, a sincere human being whose mission seemed to involve helping everyone who came across his path.
Praverb was a great person and a selfless supporter of me, my artists, and the entire music industry. It’s easy to see upon reflection, Praverb was what it looked like to not yet be abused by time and the darker side of this industry. His love of music was pure and that made him an amazing reflection of why so many of us got involved in music in the first place.
Please consider contributing to the GoFundMe page that was set up to honor his memory and help his family during this very difficult time. Rest In Peace, Praverb.
