Re: “RIP Brother Mike, poet and mentor to Chicago's hip-hop scene

I only met Brother Mike a couple of times at conferences about digital media, but he was so inspiring, and had a way about him that was both mesmerizing and totally accessible at the same time. Idealistic and realistic. A real poet who possessed wisdom and want to change the lives and made you want to do the same. He dreamed big (The Lady Gaga Bus) and I know encouraged many others to dream. I had always wanted to get him to come to Pittsburgh, as he had so much to share My deepest condolences to the whole community who truly knew him. I only had a couple of conversations with him, and yet, I shed a tear at the news. I can hardly imagine what those who really knew him are feeling.
