When Leonard Nimoy passed away on February 27th everyone in the sci-fi world paid their respects in their own unique way. No one, however, did so quite as uniquely as CT hip-hop artist 5:am, who made an incredible tribute song.
Actually, 5:am's tribute should qualify as THREE songs, as it starts out with a traditional tribute to the life of Nimoy done over a beat that samples the Star Trek theme, then moves to an interpolation of "(Sittin' on) The Dock of the Bay," and finally closes with a Spock themed version of "Ruff Ryders Anthem."
5:am's creativity is insane, and the lyrics are both dope, and informative, especially if you want to know some great facts about Nimoy's life. I can't imagine anyone not liking this.
