Im absolutely lost for words
Cookie Monsta was a huge reason I got into dubstep and having the chance to get to know him and tour with him was such a blessing. Hoping he’s in a better place now.

I remember passing tunes back and forth on the dubstepforum back in the day.. a true OG and pioneer of the dirty dubstep sound has left us. RIP Tony Cookie Monsta
