Russ Solomon, the founder of the enormously influential and widely beloved Tower Records chain, has died at age 92.

His son, Michael Solomon, told the Sacramento Bee on Monday that his father died of an apparent heart attack on Sunday evening while watching the Oscar awards ceremony and enjoying a glass of whiskey.

Raw I’ma give it to ya, with no trivia

Raw like cocaine straight from Bolivia

My hip-hop will rock and shock the nation

Like the Emancipation Proclamation

Weak MC’s approach with slang that’s dead

You might as well run into the wall and bang your head

I’m pushin’ force, my force you’re doubtin’

I’m makin’ devils cower to the Caucasus Mountains

—U-God, “Da Mystery Of Chessboxin'”
