-- A moment in the lifespan of this blog that your humble Soundcheck editor will never forget: Standing in the pit at Club Skye during DJ Christion's Birthday Bash in 2009 while Liberty City rapper Bizzle, above, made it rain with $1,000 in dollar bills. On Monday, Bizzle, a.k.a. Robert Labranche, was shot and killed during an argument outside a car wash. He was 37.
