The Roc Awards Show is grieving the loss of a tremendous individual who impacted so many with his passion and personality. Robert “Pop Tarentino” Mitchell was a part of the Roc Awards family from the very beginning and selflessly shared his gifts and amazing talent of photography and music with us. He made our good- great. As the nation lets out a collective cry of anguish, hurt, anger and frustration for another beautiful black life lost, we share that sentiment right in our own backyard as a brilliant light is squelched out too soon. We pray for your family, we cherish your memory and for you we insist that this MUST STOP. Thank you for everything you were and everything you are. We will fight, we will work, we will dream and we will capture the little pieces of beauty that you always reminded us to see.  Love you Pop
