"In every way he was the bravest, the kindest and the most excellent of men" - Bob Dylan On Muhammad Ali
Perhaps this weekend was divinely-inspired to distract us from the fact that the world lost its undisputed champion in the passing of Muhammad Ali last Friday, June 3rd. His exit was swift and heroic like the life he lived, with a heart still beating, though every organ in his body was on the brink of failure. And though we won’t soon forget the impact of Ali upon the world’s moral fabric and hip-hop at-large, many of his fellow luminaries have weighed in on this seismic loss through their respective channels. Today, we bring you a few words from the unequivocal Bob Dylan, who posted a few words on the loss of Muhammad Ali to his personal website, referring to The Champ as “…the bravest, the kindest and the most excellent of men.” Read his short, yet powerful send-off to Ali down below and hold tight for the torrent of remembrances sure to arrive in the days and weeks ahead.
“If the measure of greatness is to gladden the heart of every human being on the face of the earth, then he truly was the greatest. In every way he was the bravest, the kindest and the most excellent of men.”
