EP earlier this month on Wheez-ie's new Southern Belle imprint.

such a loss. he was the driving force behind footwork finding its way into the mainstream, and without a doubt he had more to say with the sound.

idk if i've ever gotten more headaches from furious head-bobbing than https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRPkHzAsT0U. i remember literally almost flipping my car listening to this, the need for speed and swervin' is so effortless when listening to this WAY too loud in a car (and i'm usually cautious as fuc on the road)

pretty much the only exposure I had to him was GTAV and some other stuff I randomly heard. that's really, really sad. that's way too young to pass away, RIP... poor guy.

That sucks man, like others I was introduced to him through GTAV and he was a really talented and promising musician. Drugs will do that. I heard someone claim it was due to drinking lean? I didn't know you could OD on that stuff if so.
