Re-Up: Half a Mill Freestyles
One MC who shows up on a lot of my old WYNU tapes is Half A Mill. I ripped a few of his freestyles from 1996 through 1999. There is one of them (Oct 96) where he rhymes for nearly 10 minutes without stopping. R.I.P. Half a Mill, one of BK's finest.

This post helped created a lot of buzz for Dirty Waters, and also gets a lot of re-up requests. I mostly remember this post for getting lifted and re-posted in a ton of other places, mostly with no credit. I gotta shout out to watchloud.com, though, for keeping the original link alive, and giving source credit. At the same time- how you gonna report that someone took their own life without fact checking? And also the things you cite about Half a Mill's life, through his lyrics, seem a bit distasteful. When you have someone's family pissed off from what should be a 'tribute,' you lose as a journalist.
