Gang Starr Foundation Member Krumb Snatcha Retires From Hip-Hop

Sad news here. Well, he doesn’t really retire from hip hop (because that’s impossible), but he does retires from rhyming. Gang Starr Foundation member announced on his facebook he’s going to retire from the rap game. As an old friend of Guru from Boston he was introduced to DJ Premier very early. One of his early appearances was on the ’98 Gang Starr album “Moment of Truth” on the historical song “Make ‘Em Pay”. His verse on that song immediately gave him the shine in the Hip Hop world. He received The Source’s Hip Hop Quotable for his verse on that song and became the first to ever receive a Quotable while being locked up in prison. After that he only made more classics with DJ Premier and others. This is the open letter he wrote to his friends and fans:

Unfortunately due to unfortunate circumstances I have decided to no longer be a part of certain elements and or musical endeavors. As of this day I no longer am affiliated with any label and/or management… I apologize to friends and fans but changing and putting self first is in my best interest. There will be no next album from me… I have decided to honor my commitment to the youth. Thank you all… God bless!!! -Demetrius Gibbs aka Krumb Snatcha

With no doubt a Boston pioneer!! He’ll be always a Gang Starr Foundation member!!
