Introduction: What is Derek Khan and Why is the News So Sad?
Derek Khan is a rapper who everyone knows. He has been in the business for about 19 years, and he has released albums that include: “The Intelligent Hoodlum”, which established his career in 2003, and “The Other Side of the Iron Curtain”, which came out a few years ago. Now, Derek Khan is dead at the age of 38 from cardiac arrest. The news of his death is absolutely devastating for the hiphop community, and even the general public. He was one of the people who paved a way for other rappers to be successful and keep their careers going. The reason why I am telling you this is because Derek Khan was a god, not just a rapper. He was an extraordinary person whom I will forever remember as the man who propelled me into my own rap career. He was a good man, and he was a good rapper. R.I.P Derek Khan.
