Muhammad Ali was Black excellence personified. Thanks to his gregarious way with words, unabashed swagger and unparalleled confidence, Hip-Hop readily embraced the three time heavyweight champ. 

So it should come as no surprise that Hip-Hop fans and artists are taking the news of his death hard. It’s a loss that stings a bit more consider we just lost Prince not too long ago.

The Greatest may have passed away yesterday (June 3) at 74-years-old, but his legacy will last forever.

Check out some of the reactions to the passing of the man born Cassius Clay by some of Hip-Hop’s more prominent figures—as well as pro athletes, entertainers and more—below and on the following pages.
