Thirty year old emcee and producer Camu Tao passed away on Saturday after a two-year battle with lung cancer. El-P has made a post in remembrance of his friend and collaborator who was signed to his Definitive Jux label. Tero was one half of S.A. Smash with fellow emcee Metro, a member of the Weathermen, and part of the Central Services production team with El-P. Representing his home towm, Camu was also part of Columbus, Ohio’s MHz crew with Copywrite, RJD2, Jakki Tha MotaMouth & Tage Proto, and with Cage, half of The Nighthawks, who made one album during a single three-day creative session. Clearly, few have stayed as busy and dedicated to the game as Camu. He will be missed.
