Really Really Good: Throw Some D’s Edition

R.I.P Disco D

I got the news that Disco D had passed away a few days ago. The up and coming producer had a major hit on his hands last year with his production of 50 Cent’s single Ski Mask Way. The details surrounding his suicide are slim, with some sources claiming mental health issues and financial worries as the main motives behind his death. One thing that is clear is that hip-hop has lost one of its brightest music makers.

I had the chance to ask Disco D a few interview questions a while back, and posted them on a few blogs. He seemed like a genuinely cool guy, ready to take on the world. You can check it out below, along with some other links on the story that are worth a look.
