RIP Tame One! 

Tame One, veteran New Jersey rapper and member of hip-hop has passed away at the age of 52. 

Tame One, groups Artifacts and The Weathermen are dead, confirmed by Pitchfork. The news of his death is officially confirmed by  Darlene Brown Harris, late rapper’s mother. On the facebook post, she wrote “What’s on my mind….I can’t express this any other way. My son, Rahem Brown, Tamer Dizzle Is Dead,” she wrote on Sunday. “The medical examiner says the six pharmaceutical drugs … prescribed to him last Friday, combined with the weed he smoked over this weekend … his heart simply gave out. He will know better after the autopsy. I will not be responding to all the posts for a bit, but the hardest words I will ever post or say is, my son, my heart, is dead.”

Tame One, born Rahem Brown, expressed himself as a teenager by way of music and graffiti. He debuted in 1994 alongside Artifacts groupmate El Da Sensei, Between a Rock and a Hard Place. The album was a mainstream hit and received massive success from the people. The album also gained a position on the Billboard and brought more success to the career of the rapper. 

In an interview, the rapper said that he has been passionate about rapping since his early age. The rapper was also interviewed for the last time before his death. In the interview, he said,  “I was influenced by my surroundings, I’m a product of my environment, and I capitalized upon what I saw. It’s a blessing to transform that energy and give back.”

He also added,  “[In 1979], we would walk miles with markers and cans, tagging’ up everywhere,” 

The fans of the rapper are already shocked with the death. The sudden death of a rapper brings a lot of emotions to the people.

One fan wrote, “the Artifacts debut was the first Hip Hop album I bought with my own money. A Jersey legend, RIP Tame One Hurricane G made sure Redman knew the assignment on “Tonight’s Da Night.” And was equally at home on a commercial joint like Puff’s “PE 2000.” RIP queen

While another says, “Rest East Tame One of the mighty Artifacts crew…Had the pleasure of working with him many moons ago. MY deepest of condolences to his closest friends and family

One fan wrote by saying, “R.I.P. Tame One I wanted an Artifacts feature on my album, thank you for making that happen. Thanks for the graff convo on the music. Most in hip hop use graffiti for logos and vids to look cool, we really do this. Respect to this NJ legend, my condolences to El and his family. “
