Kimbo Slice Has Passed Away, Our Generation Lost a Legend
By: Alex Marcheschi
Make no mistake, the RIP In Peace isn’t a joke about Kimbo’s death, it’s a joke about how our society treats celebrity deaths. Everyone comes out of the woodwork to stake their claim on the life of someone and it’s gross. I hesitated to do anything for Kimbo, I stayed away from Ali because I’m simply too young to make it about me. But Kimbo? Kimbo was a huge part of my teenage years.
Everyone can remember crowding around a buddy’s desktop computer watching Kimbo’s street fights. They were breathtaking. I’ll leave it up to you to decide to YouTube them if you’ve never seen them. His street fights were actually savage, not just savage the way people say it now. Sad, sad fuckin night. Talk about someone who literally put their body on the line to make a living, gotta respect the shit out of Kimbo after all is said and done. May eternal rest be given to thee, Kimbo
p.s. it is definitely being reported that he is confirmed dead. This is from a Wrestling Podcast with 67k followers.
