Remembering the Late PH – Tribute to Pumpkinhead

The excitement was toned down a bit when time was set aside to solemnly pay tribute to Robert Diaz, or Pumpkinhead. This great rapper from New York City passed on at 39 years on June 9th. He released numerous solo albums and his most outstanding was ‘Orange Moon over Brooklyn’ and ‘Dymanic’
