RIP FAJA THE POET
If what I’m hearing is correct, Inland Empire artist Faja the Poet passed away on Halloween 2019, hit by a semi while driving to a friend.
Faja the Poet’s music was getting a lot of attention in my writing lately whether with his partner Beezy or solo, he was making solid emotionally intelligent positive I.E. repping music that I was really growing to love.
I can't overstate how sad I am that there will not be an unlimited flow of his work from the stu to these website pages. I know his latest singles were building up to an album release and we really really need that. I'll definitely ask around about that and follow up.
I interacted with him online but I don’t believe we ever met. I know Beezy personally, my producer RasJosh met or at least saw Faja live at our friends’ place the Vibe Lab in Cucamonga one time 2 months or so ago but I never met dude. I won’t act like I have any special insight but I want to say this is tragic, it is noticed, and his poetry was appreciated here.
Condolences, prayers and love to everyone affected by this truly sad turn of events.
