A voz do eterno Think (About It) despediu-se hoje do mundo dos vivos. Lyn Collins tinha 56 anos. Mesmo que não a conheçam, todos os verdadeiros fãs de Hip Hop já a ouviram incontáveis vezes pois a sua obra, e especialmente este tema, foi samplada inúmeras vezes.
Backing singer de James Brown, Lyn era um mito no mundo do Diggin' e do Funk apesar de ter gravado apenas um par de álbuns. Tal como Vicky Anderson (a mulher de Bobby Byrd) e Marva Whitney, também Collins nunca ultrapassou completamente a longa sombra lançada pelo Soul Brother Nº 1. Ainda assim, as poucas gravações que deixou são suficientes para lhe alimentarem o estatuto mítico.
Prova do alcance imenso de Think (About It) é a longa lista de projectos de Hip Hop que o samplaram. E este é o melhor tributo em que poderíamos pensar neste momento.
Que descanse em paz!
