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).

I am very sorry for your loss. I have a couple of siblings I am close to and this would be heart breaking for me. Best wishes to you, your family, and friends during this tough time. He seemed like a jovial guy on camera.

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.
