Before I get into the article that All Hip Hop wrote. I would like to say that i have been supporting Hawk and his music for awhile now. If you hadnt picked up H.A.W.K. yet it is an INSTANT CLASSIC. He was on the verge of blowing nationwide with his Swishahouse deal he recently did. This is truely a huge loss and our respects goes out to his family and friends. STOP THE VIOLENCE we are losing loved ones.
