This is pretty tragic.  My condolences to Rash and his family.  I don’t know how you guys feel about motorcycles, but I’m not a fan.  They’re too dangerous and I’ve known too many people who’ve lost their lives or are now crippled up on account of accidents.

This happened Friday night during Com’s set at the Sprite Green + G.O.O.D. Music + RSVP Gallery event, and it’s probably the reason Rash stormed off right after his set.

A cousin of the rapper Common died after being knocked off his motorbike in a collision with a bicycle in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, on Friday night, cops said.  Ajile Turner, 38, was hit by the bicycle as it turned off Greene Avenue onto Washington Avenue.  The cyclist, Julian Miller, 45, who lived on Washington Avenue, also died.  “Ajile was a good guy,” said his friend, DJ JS-1. “Everybody liked him. He was a world traveler, he helped a lot of people out and he was everybody’s friend. That’s why this is such a shame.”  Turner, who lived on Cumberland Street, had been riding the Kawasaki bike east on Greene Avenue when the collision happened at 10:45 p.m., cops said.
