Ideally by now FADER 54—our annual icon issue commemorating the baby-goddess Ms. Aaliyah Dana Haughton, may she rest in peace—has set hot fire to your mag rack or your desktop. But, because we can't stop the music like Dream and Rih, FADER familia (and Aaliyah issue contributor) DJ the Honorable Caps sent us an exclusive mix celebrating the music, life and love of Aaliyah. Caps is a lifelong and very thorough fan, hence "U R Missed" is an almost-but-not-quite-chronological spirit guide to every innovative, gentle, futuristic, relate-able note—and a comprehensive homage to her collaborations with Steve "Static Major" Garrett (RIP), Missy Elliott, Kellz, Timbo. We miss you, Baby Girl.
