ECSTASY OF THE RAP GROUP WHODINI DIED

 

 Whodini – “Five Minutes Of Funk”

I’m not going to let reckless events happening in 2021 throw off too much of my orderly list of topics this year like it did in 2020. So I’ll discuss my controversial views on that recent Capitol Hill Insurrection and other political stuff as they play out, AFTER I see whether or not a transition to President Biden happens or not in the coming days because it’s important to see people make their own independent choices sometimes without outside influence. For now, I’ll entertain you with the recent passing of a Rap Icon I felt should have received more mainstream coverage.

I recently learned that John “Ecstasy” Fletcher of the Iconic Rap Trio Whodini, died at age 56 on December 23rd 2020. The cause of death is unknown. Whodini was one of my all-time favorite rap acts. I simply loved their rap and fashion sense. I don’t have much to say because in cases like this, losing yet another musical favorite, I just grieve and enjoy the nostalgic past.
