I met 2 Hale about 8 years ago. I don't really even remember much about the homie, but when news circulated that he passed I was saddened. He passed Friday morning (11/25/11) from complications of Sickle Cell Anemia. Below is a song that he recorded in Feb of this year.
Here is what Amoion of Deep Flow Studios had to say about him.
