    this is a new segment in my journal called CORY MISSES EVERYTHING

    I listen to a lot of shit, but I am a late bloomer in general and found most of my favorite music after said music was no longer being made.
    broken up bands, dead people, shark jumpers etc.

    so here, we shall cover new discoveries I should've discovered years ago. . .

    1. Camu Tao - well alright, I knew who he was. I heard Nighthawks and MHz and S.A. Smash and all those guest spots and that hilarious freestyle from Jakki the Motamouth's "built to last" where he goes "and that's. . for. . you". . . but ya know, I didn't KNOW he had solo shit . . or at least, I didn't know he had that much solo shit. There's like 2 full mix tapes (or more, I've only found two of them) of stuff that's twice as far out as Ol' Dirty Bastard. This guy was. . .was. . . .I don't even know what to say. Look up the mix tape "Blair Cosby Cereal Carpens(97 Season)". …

    On stage in Minneapolis, Minnesota Sunday evening, Aesop Rock announced that emcee Camu Tao had died after a three year bout with cancer. The Columbus, Ohio native born Tero Smith, was just less than two weeks away from his 31st birthday.

    Camu Tao rose to fame with the MHz crew, which also consisted of producer RJD2, emcees Copywrite and Jakki Tha Motamouth, plus DJ PRZM, who passed away just under a year ago as well. As the crew ascended to the ranks of the underground Hip Hop community through releases on Fondle 'Em and ABB Records, Camu would end up at High & Mighty's Eastern Conference imprint as a solo artist. There, he would record his most significant album, Nighthawks with Cage, after a reported three-day recording session. The album was inspired by the Sylvester Stallone film of the same name.

    Camu was also active with Def Jux Records. …
