Peace and blessings!
On May11th, 2012, The Hip Hop Party for the People had the honor of having a memorial for our good brother Ahmed Akil Tahir. He passed away on May 4th, leaving behind his legacy of community work. He was a pioneer in Philadelphia Hip Hop Graffiti, RAZZ founder of LAW 1 and many of us know him from the Pearl of Africa, the store that gave many opportunities for activist to work politically and culturally. On this special day, his family and loved ones gathered around for libation, white candles and share heart felt stories about his legacy and contributions. Ahmed was truly a solider for the people and a comrade to many. He will be missed!
