“A coward dies a thousand deaths... a soldier dies but once.”

Quoted from a shakespearean text, tupac issued this line in regards to the philosophy of an individual who pursues his/her destiny at all costs. In archive p.II we honor the fallen angels who left a mark in the pop-culture of yester-year; Aaliyah, freaky tah, and harlem bred big L. All who left at an early age due to divine will, and tragic circumstance. Aaliyah left behind a natural tone of honesty, sweet soulful reasoning and a prescence to remember; both on and off-stage. At his departure at 27, tah left behind loyalty, and love for the music/extended family he called his own. Lamont coleman issued out a gemstarr talent; one of the voices of harlemworld n.y, a promising mc gone too premature. Thus 2g10..i archive the history as a guidepost to the directions of the present day and future generation..the angels, came, gave and flew home..enjoy the legacy.
