R.I.P. Gavin Defoe // Escobar

Ego Thieves would like to send all its condolences to Gavin Defoe also known as Escobar. Gavin was a notorius Grime MC and was a key player and figure on Deja Vu way back in the days of Nasty Crew and Slew Dem. Most will remember him as one of the first hard Mc’s to bring the no hold bar’s attitude and bring the hype, though of course allot of his content was very controversial he never let that hold him back. He never did the music for the money, he did it because its what he represented and loved. I was lucky enough to know Gavin quite well and have some footage from way back when of him spitting several bar’s which i may edit and upload but I’m sure there will be allot of his unreleased stuff to come as well as classic footage and tunes so keep an eye on Grime Forum and his Myspace. This has come as a shock and since Monday most who knew was hoping he would make a recovery. We won’t go into how he died or join in the politics or speculation. We send upmost love to the whole family and friends alike. Rest in peace fam… <3
