DJ Godfather, who was the first to report the tragic news on Twitter, tweeted, “I loved all the music we released over the years. U will be missed!” Collaborator Chance The Rapper also offered his condolences while others like Peanut Butter Wolf and Tittsworth also paid their respects. Here’s a rundown of some of the love that’s being sent Rashad’s way in lieu of his untimely passing at the age of 35.
