    Now you're in Heaven. Rest easy Hank. Englewood lost a true musical pioneer. RIP.

    Living out on the east end of LI getting WBLS and the other early rap & hip hop stations at that time led my older brother to make his first rap album purchase... "Rapper's Delight". I'll never forget the Sugarhill Gang graphics on that album cover!

    RIP BBH!!!

    So young, so assured, so innocent, so happy. Great performances, great song -- true sentiment, not sentimentality.

    Thanks. The world's a better place for that. Rest in peace BBH.
