The greatness of CT hip-hop artist 5:am's tribute songs is both a blessing and a curse. It's a blessing because every time he releases one you know you're going to hear something amazing, and it's a curse because every time he releases one it means someone prominent has passed away. This time the prominent person in question was Rowdy Roddy Piper.
One of the most beloved pro wrestlers of all-time, Piper passed away last week at the age of 61. The man was a champion, wore a kilt to the ring, and once famously hit Jimmy Sunka on the head with a coconut.
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
