Party Arty R.I.P.

South Bronx native Party Arty (D.I.T.C. + Ghetto Dwellas) passed away today (12/4/08) from undisclosed health complications.  Party Arty always had one of the grimiest/gruffiest/dirtiest voice in the game, he was featured on many of Show & AG’s albums through the 90’s, Big L’s first joint on the track “Da Graveyard” which also featured Hova, Finesse and L, and on all of the D.I.T.C. (Diggin In The Crates) records throughout the years.  Below is a truly classic two part video he released along with his Ghetto Dwella partner D-Flow, but for real HipHop has lost a true talent with his passing. 

Arty shines on the brutally honest A Look at My Life which was released a few years back by Showbiz on the D.I.T.C. compilation album Street Talk
