The City of Chicago was shaken to its core earlier this week after losing the legend Timbuck2 to his battle with renal cancer. It was a tragic loss, and one that was felt across the world — not only Chicago. The world lost a friend, a brother, a son and one of the best DJs to ever grace the tables.

To celebrate the life and legacy of the man born Timothy Jones, WGCI’s DJ MoonDawg assembled a group of friends, colleagues, family and associates to speak on the memory of Timbuck2. He touched a lot of lives, and some of Chicago best and brightest showed solidarity by speaking about him live on-air. There was a lot of love in the room, and it was great to see just how many people loved and respected him as a man and professional.

Twista, Shareeff Williams, Mano, DJ RTC, Boi Genius, GLC, Happy, John Seyferth Connie, Ruben Trejo, Demo Salazar and Rich Lomax were all in-studio to chat. While The Twilite Tone, Lupe Fiasco and Chance The Rapper called in to express condolences.

It’s over six hours of audio and commentary, sprinkled in with some of Tim’s most classic WGCI mixes and hot takes, so no streaming service could handle the bandwidth. However, for a few days, MoonDawg has made the entire episode available for download.

Antwone Muhammad & SickOne f/ Louis Farrakhan, Lil Herb, King L, Saba, GLC & More – Justice Or Else

IMG_1563

Produced by SickOne, Da Internz & Xcel

Wow. This is a moment. The always-inspiring Antwone Muhammad (the artist formerly known as Twone Gabz) has done it again — this time alongside producer Sick One. They were able to get a vast majority of Chicago’s hottest artists and producers together on one track for a great cause, and to take a stand against social injustice. No one can fight the battle alone.

Community violence, police brutality, unity. Something has to be done, and Twone and Sick plan to move the needle with  “Justice or Else.” This is a big. And it’s also in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March, which takes place October 10th, 2015 in Washington, DC.

The official star-studded lineup is as follows: Antwone Muhammad, Chin Chilla Meek, Tyre & G.C, K’Valentine, Lil Herb, Mic Terror, Teefa, Katie Got Bandz, Chella H, Que Billah, GLC, Saba, King Louie. But enough from me, I’ll let Antwone and SickOne do the talking from here on out:

Chicago has become a breeding ground for violence in the Black and Latino communities while police brutality dowses the fire of tension among the youth. In the midst of it all, Chicago artist Antwone Muhammad (formerly Twone Gabz) and producer SickOne organized Chicago’s hip-hop community in a collaborative effort to address the violence and injustice as well as help Min. Louis Farrakhan organize the 20th Anniversary of The Million Man March taking place 10-10-15 in Washington D.C. Inspired by the theme of the march, this song is entitled “Justice Or Else”.  The song actually features The Hon. Louis Farrakhan along with a host of Chicago artist such as King Louie, Saba, GLC, Teefa, Katie Got Bandz, Chella H, Que Billah, Mic Terror and more. The songs production is also a collab with SickOne, Da Internz & Xcel. For anyone in the Chicago area looking to attend the “Justice Or Else” event on 10-10-15, please email [email protected] for more info.
