He wasn’t an entertainer or someone we’d see everyday, but what he offered the world through his own genius mind will cause him to live forever!! There’s not an APPLE product that we won’t touch and not think of Steve Jobs! Rest in Peace”
Russell Simmons: Steve Jobs was a prophet of that uniquely American genius, the Creative Entrepreneur – something no one can copy, no one can outsource, no banker can hire – a visionary who created a movement that changed generations through painstaking tenacity – even after he was fired in 1985 from the company he founded for thinking too far forward.
He gambled everything, over and over, on his vision. We owe him not just our respect and our love, but also we need to take away the lesson: never give up, never compromise your dream, never forget how you can change the world in this incredible country. This is what hip-hop has always been about. Never giving up. I can give him no greater a tribute than quoting him to the GlobalGrind generation: “Your time on this earth is limited, don’t live someone else’s life, live by your vision.”
