He was a psychedelic rap pioneer who was one of the first — and best — at translating George Clinton’s P-Funk across genres and generations. He was a high-concept ringleader of a canonical hip-hop band indelibly remembered for a song cycle about NASA-created “sex packets” that somehow helped cement hip-hop’s status as a genre with immense crossover power.
