It’s been nine years since Def Jux rapper Camu Tao passed after a battle with lung cancer. He still lives on through the music of his contemporaries like El-P and Aesop Rock, who rapped about how Tao’s death affects him even nearly a decade later on “Get Out Of The Car” from his last album, The Impossible Kid.

“If I zoom on out I can finally admit, it’s all been a blur since Mu got sick,” Rock rapped amidst a verse about coming to terms with depression and coping with Tao’s death. In the video, which you can watch below, Aesop raps the song while sketches of Camu are drawn out behind him.
