As recently reported the man known as "Uncle Howie" AKA Howard Tenenbaum, who served as an inspiration and quasi-mascot for his nephew Ill Bill and Necro's recordings and companies recently passed on after years of battling addiction.
The cause of death is still unspecified, but Bill did confirm via Twitter late last week that Tenenbaum had passed:
"Uncle Howie RIP - Rest in power my G,"
PHH sends out it's thoughts to Bill, Necro and the entire Uncle Howie Records Camp.
