    Awwwww, man! Thanks so much for posting this picture.

    That show was really heavy for us because that was the first show after he passed. It was gonna be a big show, man. We were playing with Kool Keith at the MMS (Midwest Music Summit). We went to the stage and let everything out that night. The place was packed and many, many people there knew or were touched by Mpozi. He was absolutely unforgettable and if you met him once, you sure as heck remembered it. We acknowledged our incredible, dynamic brother and played that set for him…hard. It was one of our best shows ever, easily. I don’t have really specific memories of that show, I couldn’t tell you the set-list or anything like that…but I know that when I got off that stage, I felt like crying, I felt like jumping, I felt like running in the street. I felt so much stuff, man. I just talked to Mpozi for a while after the show and told him thank you for everything he did and how awesome he was. I let him know I missed him. I talk to him all the time. He is always with us.

    I knew we had jammed as hard as ever, man, but my guy wasn’t there to get the shots and kick it with us after the show. I missed that cat. This night when I am meeting one of my IDOLS, Kool Keith and kicking it with him and “DAMN, MPOZI AIN’T HERE”. I sat and talked about that shirt with Kool Keith. He asked who our friend was. Kool Keith’s a great guy, man, if for that alone. I love a lotta what he has done, but him asking me about my shirt wins him about 897 cool points with me forever.

    Big-up to Elp-Mass, Skittz and DJ Helicon for rocking that shit so exceptionally well on behalf of our friend. Peace to all MPOZI CREW, WORLDWIDE.

    Peace, Love, and Mpoziness.

    Rusty Redenbacher, Mudkids, MPOZI CREW MIDWEST
