Rest In Peace – Cadence (Raw Produce)

It was extremely sad to learn today about the passing of producer-on-the-mic Seth ‘Cadence” Boyd of acclaimed East Coast duo Raw Produce.

As both a member of the group and a solo artist Cadence dropped numerous quality projects from the mid-90s into the new millennium including the 1998 single “Mister Dope America” and 2006’s “Creative Commerce” album, blending his passion for true-school, sample-based Hip-Hop with a determination to inject some food for thought into his rhymes.

I’ve dealt with Cadence numerous times during my years writing about Hip-Hop and his genuine love of the music and culture always shone through in every interaction we had – condolences go out to his friends and family.
