Don Giovanni Releases the Complete Works of Late Philly MC Ronnie Vega


Don Giovanni Records has released the complete discography of the late Philadelphia MC Ronnie Vega (aka Curan Cottman). All proceeds from the sale of his discography will be donated to the Oshun Family Center, an organization that is currently providing free therapy for Black residents of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland. Find Two EPs and Vega’s “Therapy” video below.

Vega died earlier this month at the age of 29. The release of his discography coincides with a memorial vigil that will be held at LAVA in Philadelphia. “Curan Cottman aka Ronnie Vega will be remembered as a light in the life of everyone that knew him, but his music talks vividly about the trauma of racism and capitalism that he experienced as Black person in America,” Ian Winter, who organized a GoFundMe for Vega’s family and final arrangements, said in a press release. He continued:

To honor our friend, his band would like to make his music available
for purchase with all the proceeds going to a fund, organized by
Saleemah McNeil, that helps Black people in the Philadelphia area
connect with free therapy.
