Rest in peace to Hunafa /African Identity who passed away last week.  His children have established a GoFundMe page where you can help with final arrangements.  Billy Jam (who introduced us to African Identity’s music in the 90’s) wrote a touching remembrance on the Amoeblog.  Check out a song he did with Del called “17 Slaves” from his release, You Won’t Come To My Funeral.
