R.I.P. Spiega of Monsta Island Czars

It’s with great sadness that I learned today of Spiega’s passing. A longtime member of the acclaimed and elusive Monsta Island Czars crew. Spiega was an extremely talented and raw MC and he will be missed greatly. I helped push a solo album of his years ago via the site and I’ll try and get that up later today so his memory will live on through his music.

Hi my name is Dawn St. Clair and my best friend and children’s father died suddenly November 10 from a bicycle accident. He left behind 2 beautiful boys aged 22 and 15, and a whole host of friends and family who loved him. We need help to give him a beautiful service dedicated to his memory. Any help would be appreciated

There’s a gofundme I’m posting below if you can please donate.

Man, it’s with great sadness that I announce the death of Pat Stay. The other day he dropped a diss track baiting The Game to battle. I put Bonafide and The Supervisor on to Pat via the diss and they started diving in to his battles. No more than 24 hours after that Pat was gone. When the news broke, I honestly didnt believe it. I truly thought it was a rues, an attempt to bait The Game or a Game fan starting an internet rumor that would be quickly douced. That was not the case. Confirmations quickly started to come out and people were broken.

Pat Stay is a legend in the battle rap community, arguably one of the greatest. He was a KOTD champion and held the title for two years. He invented the complimentary style. From what I hear he was a incredibly stand up guy, did a ton for the battle community and young battlers coming up, looking to make a name for themselves. Perhaps his selflessness can proven by his passing, as the rumor is Pat was at a wedding party when a fight broke out, Pat tried to break it up, in the melee Pat was stabbed, ambulance was called and Pat was rushed to the hospital where he passed.

Pat Stay was larger than life, physically and verbally. His battles will go down in history as some of the greatest, he will be remembered as a innovator and one of the funniest dudes on the mic in the ring.

Pat Stay forever Rest in Power. Condolences to his friends and family. Feel free to contribute to Pat Stays memorial fund below.



It’s with great sadness I write that the incredible MF DOOM has passed away. His wife reported that the veteran MC passed on Halloween. This is devastating. And I assume it’s hitting you like it is me. We’ve been covering doom since the start of this site in 2003. I put so many people on to DOOM through this site had people reach out to me and tell me how much he inspired them. He was truly unique and will forever be missed. He’s raps Mozart.
