Steve Jobs Dies, HipHop Reacts


Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple Inc., died today (October 5) after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. The innovative visionary credited with creating the iPhone, iPod, iTunes and countless other technological innovations was only 56 years old and had undergone surgery for the disease.

Jobs was viewed as the face of Apple computers, a company he started in his home in 1976 with Steve Wozniak. The company became one of the most successful in the world and Jobs put Apple at the cutting edge of music and entertainment technology with the introduction of the iMac OS X and Pixar Films.

Several hip hop artists tweeted their reaction to Jobs’ death.

“An innovator. Contributed so much to this generation & beyond. RIP Steve Jobs,” tweeted Nicki Minaj. “Damn that’s crazy.. R.I.P Steve Jobs,” Pill of Maybach Music tweeted.
