Richard Nichols: The Legendary

The New Beatmaker was shocked and deeply saddened to hear of the tragic passing of Richard Nichols, after a battle with leukemia, this week. 

Nichols managed The Roots from 1992, taking them from busking on the streets of Philadelphia to becoming the much loved and respected household name they are today.  Nichols was also heavily involved in production, mixing and A&R for the group.  His brilliant mind was also evident throughout his appearances in ?uestlove's 'Mo Meta Blues', an autobiography and history of The Roots, released last year.

The New Beatmaker would like to offer it's deepest condolences to Mr Nichol's family and friends.
