R.I.P. Tero “Camu Tao” Smith (1977-2008)

blame it on Shake May 25, 2009

Today marks the one year anniversary of Camu Tao’s untimely passing. So take a minute out of your Memorial Day  and send some prayers/good vibes to the friends and family of the Weatherman emcee. For those unfamiliar with Tamu’s music, check the jump for the R.I.P. Camu Tao mixtape; featuring a nice collection of tracks (which I included after the jump). Shouts to Vega on the reminder.
