CRUDE OIL aka BERNIE PEREZ - REST IN PEACE

It’s with a heavy heart that I report that Crude Oil, also known to his friends as Bernie Perez, passed away yesterday. For those that don’t know, Oiler was one of my best friends and is the man responsible for all the handstyles that have decorated all the various 12ozProphet and Also Known As projects incorporating tags over the years. Though misunderstood by many, he was dearly loved by those few he called friends. Oil wasn’t a very big kid physically, but his big heart and big character towered over most, and it was typical for him to be the center of attention in every room he entered or situation he was a part of. Those that we’re in his company (and weren’t on the receiving end of his beef), often had the pleasure of the one man comedy act that made up his true personality. Anyhow, I got this tragic news while on the road, but will try and honor his memory over the coming weeks by posting pictures I know he was fond of. I also have two posts he wanted me to put on his blog for him, that’ll I’ll handle as soon as I can. In the mean time, I’ll leave you with the picture below, which he’d emailed me the day before he passed away.
It’s my hope that Bernie has finally found the tranquility that always seemed to elude him in life. Rest in peace brother…
