R.I.P. I love his music. I just found out that he's Roberta Flack's son.

News Flash young folks.
This is one of the most sampled songs ever!
Who do you love!
These rappers never played o
Instruments, they just stole other folks songs and rapped over the songs..like Bernards
Unitl they started getting sued.

Where do people go when they die? Nowhere, heaven, hell or reincarnation?? I wish we knew. Or maybe you don't sure at all you just live on in another dimension.

Who Do you Love was/is the jam and quite often sampled. I hope he benefited from it while he was here. All these pioneers leaving at a young age is quite sad. Hopefully his soul is rested and at peace.

Thanks for posting the video and his other song. I just remember the 90s samples of these two songs. The video is dope too. Beautiful lady in the video, reminds me of Eve a little. Prayers to his family, and Rest in Power!!

Who Do You Love was a favorite song in high school and I'm so sad to hear of Bernard's passing. He was in a car accident and now gone on to be with his Lord. RIP.
