A Message from Mr. Dibbs:
I died last year.Â For 53 seconds.Â One short month after the quiet release of Deadworld.Â Foreshadowingâ??s a bitch.Â What I could not see at the time was being reborn into the world of the living through someone elseâ??s full-circle leaving.
Holed up in the hospital for a few weeks, I was an inadvertent resident of an impromptu hip hop retirement home.Â Battling leukemia on the floor above me was my longtime friend Marcus â??Skandal da Ruckus Manâ? Mitchell.Â Â An epic MC and producer, of equally epic bodily proportions, Skandalâ??s heart was big, but his production skills and lyrical largesse were even bigger. I dragged my sometimes half-incoherent ass, IV and all, down the hallways and into the elevator to visit my homie.Â The nurses always thought I was lost.Â Fuck that.
I was FOUNDâ?¦in the strong lifeline weâ??ve all come to know and love as Skandal.Â He was my pusher manâ?¦keep on pushinâ??, Dibbs, until you get to the other side of you.Â
Skandal lost his life in October this year.Â I have memories for days of him, but there will be no more new ones.Â I donâ??t get to have that again.Â I donâ??t get to have those phone conversations with him or watch stupid-ass movies or videos on YouTube and laugh about it.Â You donâ??t miss that shit, until that shitâ??s not there.Â I got lucky.Â I would trade my life for his any day.Â I wish I could be like that dude.Â He made me feel important enough for me to be reborn.Â I am doing it.Â I am doing it now.
And so Iâ??m giving you Deadworld Rebornâ?¦because this man gave me back my fucking life.
And with that, I want to give his family back their livesâ?¦and a return to normalcy.Â All proceeds from this album are going directly to Skandalâ??s family and young daughter Chloe.Â Pay what you canâ?¦Skandal sure did.
