    This seems to be the only confirmation on the internet right now. No one else is reporting it.
    This ain't no middle of the mall shit.

    I don't think Spinn would re-tweet an RIP tweet if it wasn't true, as they're really close. Man, this is fucking terrible news if true.

    Godfucking damnit

    I was listening to Double Cup today too.... what a fucking shame. He had made some amazing music in his life and he was only just getting started. I missed seeing him in LA last december due to stomach flu. I seriously regret that now.

    My first reaction to these things is always denial. Really, really fucking sad. RIP.

    Billboard is saying it was a drug overdose so board protocol suggests we now treat this lightly and HiFromDFU will be by shortly.

    Nice write-up from TinyMixTapes, as well as a mix they put together: http://www.tinymixtapes.com/features...riam-dj-rashad

    I normally don't get too upset about celebrity deaths, but for whatever reason this one still has me really bummed out.

    Watch this awesome documentary about the roots of footwork & juke music. RIP Rashad. Your set with DJ Spinn was one of my highlights from last year.
