The local hip-hop scene has suffered a great loss. Axel Rosa was more than just a music producer. He took a real interest in the young up-and-comers and did his best to nurture and develop the talent that he saw. He was at every hip-hop show in town, whether or not any of his artists were on the bill. He threw charity events, produced music videos, and always seemed to be grinding.
He was working on several projects at the time of his passing. I do hope they see the light of day. His passion for the music was unmatched. I never had the chance to work with him on a track, but I’ve rocked countless stages with him and his crew, Labeled Minority.
Axel has been on Word is Bond Rap Radio a handful of times too. In tribute to him, let’s look back at all those times in this episode. These clips have been edited for time, if you want to hear the full episodes, they can be found here . . .
