R.I.P. Black Samurai

It's downright depressing to cover death news- celebrity or otherwise.  As time has gone on, however, not many people have covered this one, so I figure I out to him to do this.

Jim Kelly was not the biggest name in Martial Arts Cinema.  His stardom came and went far too quickly.
That said, he appeared in Enter the Dragon and a series of solo films- including Black Samurai and The Tattoo Connection.  They never caught on as well, but they were still memorable.  Plus, he was in I'm Gonna Get You, Sucka.

He tragically lost a long battle with Cancer recently.  It's a loss for everyone.

He's flying his jet pack in Heaven now.
Rest in Peace, Jim Kelly.
