This week the hip-hop world was saddened to learn of the passing of one of its most prevalent cornerstones. Pumpkinhead, known in his later years as PH, was an MC who emerged near the very beginning of the New York underground movement of the mid-90s and remained an important player transcending generations and impacting and influences every MC who made a name in the five boroughs in his wake. From the Lyricist Lounge to battles to everywhere in between, Pumpkinhead created a longstanding legacy for himself that few can compare with. On the off-chance there's some listeners not familiar with his work or just looking to relive some of his finest moments, we at the Weekly have assembled five essential Pumpkinhead clips.
