PH Memorial Friends & Family

On June 9, 2015 the world lost a valued member of the Hip Hop community, Robert Alan Diaz (September 17, 1975 – June 9, 2015), known by his stage name Pumpkinhead aka PH. We also lost a beloved friend, brother, husband, son and father.

PH in Cap

PH was known as the Underground King in the Hip Hop music biz and on the battle rap scene. He was a Hip Hop music purist, dedicating his life to creating, celebrating and preserving the art form. He was known to be extremely humble, supportive of dozens of movements, wanting to help anyone who he felt was also doing music that was good for the culture. In honor of his legacy we look to unite fans, friends and others to pay their respects to PH.

The theme is white clothing (*optional, of course), since we are CELEBRATING his LIFE and MUSIC, not mourning, with a splash of Orange for PH’s style.

PH BattlingPH grew up in Park Slope, one block from this venue, so the location has a special significance for family and friends. PH was such a loved figure in the community and around the world that his family was flooded with thousands of requests to come to the funeral. Unable to accommodate everyone they decided to keep the services small and relatively private. Regrettably, many people felt left out and needed a place to pay respects to PH.

The Family has love for all and PH’s mom, wife, kids, and other relatives will be in attendance to accept condolences, hugs and fond memories of your times with Robert. All  are welcome in love, respect & solidarity for our brother, MC, Event Promoter, friend & family man, the Underground King.

This memorial event is for the community to come together, connect with friends, speak about PH’s impact on music and on our lives, watch footage of PH’s videos and his Last Interview, and raise money for the memorial fund. Food was donated by Fat Buddha Bar (212 Avenue A, nyc), which was one of PH’s favorite hang outs.

ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO PH’S FAMILY. Thank you for your continued support.

The Plague -aka- Army of the 12 Monkeys

The Plague is a crew of Hip Hop artists, formed in the late 90’s, whose membership has changed over the years. Current membership is GMS (co-founder), LR Blitzkrieg (co-founder), WildChild (co-founder), PH (co-founder), DJ DP ONE, PackFM, MrMecc, Tonedeff, Session, Substantial, Bad Seed, ArchRival and Poison Pen. Most of the Plague got their start battling and performing on the NY underground Hip Hop music. Although they have never released an official album together, they released two self-titled mixtapes in the early 2000’s and the crew is featured on individual members projects.

The Plague recently suffered the loss of one of their founders, PH aka Pumpkinhead aka Robert Diaz, who passed away due to medical complications on June 9th, 2015. PH was loved throughout the underground hip hop community, the battle rap scene and by friends and fans throughout he world. His passing was reported by major news and music outlets, including CNN, TIME, RollingStone, Billboard, Pix11, NYDailyNews, MTV, BET and every Hip Hop and battle rap website. #RIPPH was a trending topic on Facebook & Twitter in the following 24hours. Here are eulogies from MCMI & QN5.

The crew is currently working on a PH Tribute EP/Album to be released jointly through all of their labels and promoted by the entire collective, proceeds of which will be a future revenue stream for PH’s family. Saddened by the loss, the crew is nonetheless inspired and motivated to produce the best work possible, in the name of their fallen brother in arms.
