Someone, a fellow artist and user, will hook him up with a nice quiet reserved dealer for the rest of his livelong days. I hope he continues to make good music and seek help for his demons.

I can't throw shade on this very talented young man, its not like he's a rapper with gold teeth and sagging pants. I'm going to need him to get his shit together seek the help and beat those drug demons, they can be a bitch to overcome. he has too much talent to waste and good music is in short supply these days, praise Goddess for the oldies but goodies.

Lord why can t successful black men get their act together? We have Chris Brown, talented as heck. To me, he could be the next Michael Jackson, but no, he wants to claim association with Piry Bloods & is cuurrently sitting in jail. Darren Sharper, stellar football player, 14 years in the league..accused of serial rape. Paul George, on the way to becoming a superstar basketball player, subpoened over getting a stripper pregnant.


Now Roy Hargrove sniffing that whitegirl, & getting in trouble.

Dont black men now that there is somebody

1:04pm WAITING to take you down. DAMN, its like they dont have life skills. How many times have basketball players been warned about skanks looking for a pay day? How many warnings did Chris Brown get before he was JAILED?
The sad thing about drugs is that you dont get any warnings. One bad hit & YOU RE DEAD! Good Luck Roy!

A gay, cokehead in the west village at 4 in the morning... Typical.
His dumb ass should have a runner for all that...
Plus who has to go out to buy coke at 4 in the morning in NyC??? Those are the prime coke delivery hours, and every coca hustla knows those greedyfuckers don't sleep and they'll spend every red cent they have until their nose conks out on them for the night.
He was probably trying to buy more than coke is my guess and the media going light on him because he's a respected "jazz" musician.

Dam man why you want to mess with that crap

Damn, damn, damn Roy. I heard rumors for years, but I didn't want to believe it was true. I hope he gets himself together -- it would be a shame for all that talent to go to waste.

What a perfect name for a stupid post about garbage: "Rhymes with Snitch--News from the Bathroom Wall." Maybe if you all got your heads out of the toilet, you would leave your opinions about Roy Hargrove, et al. in the toilet! How many of you opinionated, politically correct commentators have ever paid for a jazz performance? Leave him alone--he has devoted himself to this beautiful music and made many of us very happy!

martha sammaciccia said...

One more thing--to "Anonymous"--where do you get your info? Where do you come off assuming a "gay cokehead " had anything to do with what you read? Why can't you put your name on your opinions?

Your ass was probably on Christopher Street trying to pick up Roy and he gave you the brush off Now you're all salty get over miss honey!!!

Not surprised. This has been his life for years now. Roy used to be into heroin, and is currently on kidney dialysis for that shit. Crack? Never. Roy Hargrove is a gold-plated jazz artist know all around the world.....Only Cocaine will do. He get's high off of weed (and more) before EVERY show he plays. I have never known him to be sober.

Man, I saw Roy play in Boston not long after his first record. Killin it all night long - one of the best performances I ever saw. He should take a break, leave the city and get clean. Too much talent to waste getting caught up on all the stupid shit surrounding him right now. Be cool RH - we love ya!
