Steve Jobs was the visionary behind the Apple company. Through his inventions, Jobs helped revolutionize the hip hop industry, without trying. Earlier this year, Hip Hop Vibe wrote an article about Jobs.br /br /At the time, Steve Jobs had stepped down as CEO of Apple, to focus on his cancer treatment. For some time, Jobs has battle pancreatic cancer. Jay-Z rapped about Steve Jobs on his 2006 comeback album, emKingdom Come/em. During this time, the original iPod was still rising in popularity.br /br /In the five years since then, the world is preparing for the iPhone 5, the iPad 2, new Mac computers, and several new systems. This is all because of Steve Jobs. Now, when an artist releases an album, they are focused on topping iTunes, as opposed to the Billboard Hot 100. This shift has happened here in recent years.br /br /Sadly, the mastermind behind all of this, Steve Jobs, is dead at the age of 56. In 1976, Steve Jobs founded the Apple company, with childhood friend Steve Wozniak. Wozniak spoke on Jobs’ death, saying: “I’m shocked and disturbed.” Steve Jobs had beaten the pancreatic cancer, back in 2004. It was following that bout, when the wave of new inventions came. In his 2011 letter of resignation, Steve Jobs wrote: “I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know, unfortunately that day has come.”br /br /Steve Jobs has lived an incredible life, starting his company at 21 and reaching billionaire status before he turned 30. Apple had this to say about their founder: “We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today,” read a statement by Apple’s board of directors. “Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve. His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts.”br /br /Steve Jobs lived from 1955 until 2011 and he will truly be missed by all.div class=”blogger-post-footer”div class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”
