I think it was Sketch who brought it up on the Watch how with all the callbacks in Bender battles it almost feels like they all live in there own universe. It actually made perfect sense and I'm now convinced that Bender abides by the Tralfamadorian concept of time.

So it goes.

Very upset to hear that the cause might be sleep apnea since this is something that can be managed without any real intrusive intervention (i.e. weight loss, lifestyle changes, cpap/bipap machines).

It looks like Flight Distance are doing everything through their official page http://www.facebook.com/pg/flightdistance/posts/. You can find lots of stuff about their fundraising efforts and the official statement there.

Quote:
On March 1, 2018, we lost a humble genius. Alex 'Bender' Buchanan was a man of many hats: MC, producer, writer, visual artist and battle rapper.

For many of us here in Ottawa — and far beyond — we were lucky enough to add the title of friend to that list.

Having Bender as a friend was a privilege. In the give-and-take of any friendship it was a barter system that always worked out in your favour. Trade him sleeping on your couch for a verse that would leave you transfixed and dazzled. Your last cold beer for a chance to bop your head to his beats of brutally beautiful boom bap. Offer up the glow from your TV set to see him destroy round after round of Jeopardy with Einstein-like instinct. Bender never disappointed.

His approach to his artistry was both obsessive and prolific and he has left us with many gifts.

In his far too brief career he gave us three full-length LPs as a member of Flight Distance, a large body of artwork with a focus on portraiture, hours of classic battle rap footage and countless social media posts that could rival the wit of any Harvard grad in a comedy writers' room.

In spite of all of this Bender never once made you feel like he was better than, or above you. He always made you feel like an equal.

Bender was humble. Bender was a genius. But on top of it all Bender was kind. If you offered up your heart to him he'd give you his right back.

I think one of the interesting things is all the collaborations that were booked that we'll never see. Shotty Horrah tweeted that he was doing a posse track featuring Flight Distance, Osa, Loe Pesci and, erm, Briggz. It was going to be entitled Invasion of the Body Catchers, lol. Would have been dope to hear that combo.

Rest in paradise Bender.

Simply jawdroppingly prolific in the battle ring as well as many other outlets such as music,, art, and comedy.

Will be running through all of his battles chronologically and pour one out for the homie.

He said it himself, ďim too consistent to choose a best ofĒ

Thank you for the moments and condolences to the family

I think vs Scott “You make Roch Voisine look like a striker from the Rock Machine!” Was the first insane multi I heard from Bender and I was instantly a fan. It was so clear he was completely fucking different, and since then has constructed arguably the most exalted archive of multis, clever punches and references across any rap platform imo. Legend.

Was just re-watching Fresco v Thesaurus (Dope ass battle, Fresco snaps with punches) and can't believe I didn't notice this the first time. Saurus runs a scheme that has multiple pieces of the multi that are copied from Bender. The similarities are pretty wild but I think its more of a subconscious/tribute thing more than a bite type of thing.

Check this out...

Bender:
No artist respects him, Im Mozart ressureccted..you in deep shit the coast guard would need sonar to detect him..tell mista hop in the go kart and go start up the engine or end up in an OR pickin bone shards out ya tendons...cold hearted, i think like a loan shark thats collectin..you got no bars for the most part and so far its pathetic...see I can appreciate when a rapper like you goes hard in a session..etc etc post pardem depression


Saurus:
im a loan shark, no sarcasm..youll need sonar trackin cuz im so far past him..im composin mozart classics, so dont start actin like we in the same boat...im the coast guard captain!

That's really not that crazy to me at all, it's a two syllable rhyme.

True, but by that same logic, think about how many other things rhyme with those 2 syllables, yet these were all chosen together. Saurus was at that bender battle

with certain schemes, competent writers will very easily think of the same ones as there's only so many compound words that fit to a scheme. its not crazy at all and pete obv didn't have benders shit in mind when writing some shit he prob jotted down the night before the battle. anywayy, the context in between them and the non-preexisting phrase are what will be different.

mozart is not a tough one, esp go kart with it. ive thought of a single multi to kickstart a scheme that i later saw another person used and there's often overlap.

easiest way to put it is this: imagine someone is writing and thinks "mozart was dope, i'll rhyme about that" which is not a super unique or off the wall concept as a topic. mozart is world renowned. ok, what are the chances 2 people who have solid vocabs and are good at rhyming things will overlap with say go kart, ozark, broke heart, bull shark, etc. pretty easy.

and the chances of a bit of overlap get easier once u add extra multis in etc

also pete prob bit him, he's known to do that, i was planning to win scribble and wow look at that
