R.I.P. Tero “Camu Tao” Smith


Camu It was exactly one year to the day that I was at Soundset last year. Aesop Rock took the stage and looked visibly shooken. He made the announcement over the microphone that long time friend and associate Camu Tao had passed away. Yesterday at Soundset El-P made sure to remind us that he’d appreciate it if we kept his great friend in our prayers.

Camu Tao was an incredibly integral part of independent Hip-Hop. He was a part of The Weathermen, MHz, Nighthawks (with Cage), Central Services (with El-P) & also a member of Cardboard City. Camu was a great emcee and a great fucking producer. He was a very talented man, and he will be missed for a very long time to come. Throw your “WM’s” up today for Camu and be as loud as you can to show your appreciation.

I’ll put up this vid because Aes said it was one song that Camu loved to get live to:

Aesop Rock: “Daylight”
