A History of Ben Horowitz's Best Rap References

Lil Wayne, Swag Surfin

Post: "Why the Browser Matters"
Date: 6/28/2011
Lyrics: "Lost some real n%^$as I knew from a long time ago/ But Heaven or Hell, I'm hoping that they be where I'm a go"

At first glance, the Lil Wayne's lyric from his No Ceilings mix tape doesn't seem to fit with Horowitz's post about the evolution, or lack there of, of the web browser. Then you get to the last paragraph where he talks about one of his bosses at Mozilla, Mike Homer, who passed away from Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Then it all makes perfect sense.
